Hello, I had juvaderm injections and it lasted for approximately 6 months. It seems like my eye bags became more noticeable. Even an extra crease on my cheek. Maybe this is my imagination. The doctor told me all along the surgical procedure would be my best due to the puffiness. Also I was bruised for 4 days and needed to miss work. I would consider going back to do this but the bruising is too much. Would you have any suggestions?

Hi and thank you for your question! Correction of bags under eyes with filler requires high level of expertise for natural looking results without over-filling the area. I usually use Belotero or Restylane (and sometimes Volbella) for this area for a more uniform and natural result. Additionally, many patients need some filler in other areas nearby to maintain a uniform transition and avoid the treatment back-firing and making the bags more noticeable. Bruising is a possibility after any filler injections and the risk is unfortunately higher with injections under the eyes. I highly recommend doing the injections with micro-cannula for better results and reduce risk of swelling and bruising. I hope it helps and good luck!
