Was I a bad candidate for under eye fillers? The results were so minimal

Cosmetic Treatments QuestionsCategory: Restylane RefyneWas I a bad candidate for under eye fillers? The results were so minimal
A patient asked 3 years ago
On 2/28/18 I had 1 syringe to each tear trough area of Restalyne Refine = 2 syringes. Also, 1 syringe of Juvaderm Voluma shared between both eyes to the cheek area. It cost me $2,200. I was so upset that the results were so minimal. The clinician told me to return in 2 weeks and she would do another round of the same. So an additional $2200 for a total of $4400. Do I go back and hope it works or perhaps goes an be evaluated with another provider that will tell me what my best option should be?

Minimal Results after Filler under the Eyes

 
Hi and thank you for your question! I am sorry to hear about your frustration but quite frankly, based on your pictures I do think that you had good results. When doing consultation with my patients, I always try my best to create right expectations so that my patients can make a well-informed decision. The keyword in cosmetic medicine is “improvement”. Quite often our goal here is to achieve significant improvement compared with the baseline of the patient. While complete removal and correction of the concern for which the patient comes to see us is possible, it is not something that can be achieved in all cases and setting the expectations right is very important. After waiting for 2 weeks, I highly recommend that you do the follow up and reassessment to know where you stand and what the further options are and then you can decide. In general, even if you ended up needing more fillers for better results, I doubt that it will be as much as you had initially needed. I hope it helps and good luck!
