Q:

I had Juvederm to correct nasolabial folds in my face. After the procedure, I've noticed how asymmetrical my face is.  I actually look like a stroke patient.  What can be done to correct this?

A:

See the physician who injected you (hopefully it was a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon) and have the Juvederm dissolved .

Then re-evaluate your injector, and  see whether you are a candidate for other fillers/other procedures.

A:

Go back and see the individual who performed your injections.  Compare the before and after photos and ask about your options.  There may be an indication to inject medication to dissolve the Juvederm.  Talk to your injector about the options you have.

A:

Juvederm and Nasolabial Fold Correction – Juvederm is a very good filler to use for nasolabial correction if it is not significantly deep. If nasolabial folds are deep, I use a deeper layer filler such as Radiesse concomitant with a filler such as Juvederm. Of course, everyone is asymmetric so correction has to be done asymmetrically often. If the jowls are deep enough then a facelift should be considered done concomitantly with nasolabial fold fat compartments.
