face swelling after filler injection
31 year old male, skin type 3, no medical condition.
visited to treat his volume loss on the mid face and jaw line contouring.
Rha4 1 ml injected with cannula 25 g each side into mid face and lateral soof.
Ultra deep half cc injected with cannula 25 g along the jaw line each side as well.
minimal redness and no reaction at the time of inaction.
12 hours after the injection he developed swelling with considerable pain involving the whole left cheek, not just the parotid area.
after 24 hrs, the swelling has progressed as well as the pain which radiates to the whole left side of the face. no skin necrosis or ischemia is noted but he can’t eat and find it very difficult to talk because of severe pain.
Can you advice me on the best way to address this issue.
