Can you have facial filler like juvaderm if you have had an acute subdural hematoma due to a hit on your head?

Can you have facial filler like juvaderm if you have had an acute subdural hematoma due to a hit on your head?

Yes: Unless you are on medication to decrease blood clotting. The bleeding caused by trauma is not a contraindication to facial fillers. I am assuming this bleed is resolved and there are no current neurological complications. If they are complications hold off anything as non essential as fillers until everything is stable ...Read more

Do you think I should I have a juvederm injection on my lips?

Juvederm: I use both injectable fillers and fat grafting to the lips to give them a fuller, softer appearance. Hyaluronic acids such as Juvederm and Restylane (dermal fillers) temporarily plump the lips and can last approximately six months to a year depending on the filler. Fat grafts are obtained from a patient's own fat through liposuctioning areas such as the inner thighs or abdomen and carefully injecting in the lips. ...Read more

How long does the swelling from juvederm last? I'm confused. I've read that there's basically no down time after juvederm, but then I've read that swelling can last several days. I don't want to go out in public with unnatural swelling, so i'd call that d

Marketing verbage: Quite right - swelling or bruising is certainly "downtime". But many manufacturers like to downplay these possibilities.
For most patient's the swelling is minor, especially if you are conservative with the amount of material injected. You'll have to decide if you are comfortable with that idea. ...Read more

Got juvederm fillers on lips which caused a bump, doc says it's a clot that should've re absorbed by now. Could this travel and kill me?

Got juvederm fillers on lips which caused a bump, doc says it's a clot that should've re absorbed by now. Could this travel and kill me?

Extremely unlikely: I suspect that the swelling is not a clot at all, but just some of the filler that "clumped up" and didn't smooth out. It will eventually subside if this is the case. But it even if it IS a blood clot, your body is likely to digest it over a few days or weeks. It's unlikely to be large enough to cause a problem, and even if it migrates, it won't go directly to the lungs or anything. No worries. :) ...Read more

I am considering getting lip fillers, the consultant uses Juvederm. How do I know I won't have a reaction I have never had a cosmetic procedure before?

Great question: The incidence of an allergic reaction to fillers is very low. Many people might get a reaction in terms of: swelling, mild redness or discomfort. These are expected. Like with most things you have never tried, you won't know until you try. Talk with a plastic surgeon and make sure they know your entire medical history to make the best decision ...Read more

Had juvederm injected and I look too swollen in the mouth area. I want to have it dissolved but will the skin have stretched?

Juvederm: Juvederm injection can make the area look swollen. Most often the skin will not remain stretched after injection but it depends on the elasticity of the skin to begin with & how much was injected. Were you a previous smoker? Send us a photo to give you a better prognosis. ...Read more
