Customer Question

Is it possible for fluid/air to become trapped in the subcutaneous space
of the face following repeated hyaluronidase injections to dissolve juvaderm in cheeks?
I had juvaderm voluma injected into my cheeks in 2012 , august and november in the same area to give my cheekbones a contoured look. By marchof this year it had not resolved so i had hyaluronidase injected intothe area a total of 4 times in 2 months because it was not fully dissolving. Now my the area around my lower cheeks buccal region and inside of my and just under my eye appear swollen still expecially my cheeks, almost as if there is a layer of fluid residing under my skin. Is it possible that the fluid from the injections has not been absorbed/dissipated by my body, if so will it be possible to perform some sort of diagnostic and or drainage? It is really effecting my life, THANKS.
