Have a before, that night and the next day pictures for reference. I rely on this website, so wanted to ask in case anyone else needed to know. I have been icing and using Arnica gel. Not liking it so far…have changed schedule this weekend so I don’t have to go out on the public. I will keep the community posted, with pictures. Assuming this is normal healing?

Asymmetry following Radiesse

 
Hi and thank you for your question! We always advise patients to allow two weeks following any filler injections to ensure any and all swelling is fully resolved. With the active swelling still present, it would be hard to determine if the asymmetry is related to the filler itself or the swelling. Once the two-week period is passed and if you are still unhappy with the results, you should do a follow up with your doctor for a reassessment and possibly revision/correction of any remaining issues. I hope it helps and good luck!
