First and foremost, don’t get me wrong. Dermal fillers are my favourite aesthetic procedure. Through a tiny needle, doctors can do wonders with this โ€˜magic gelโ€™ that restores volume & refines line. ๐™๐™ง๐™ช๐™ฉ๐™ ๐™ž๐™จ, ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™ฎ๐™ฉ๐™๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™š๐™ญ๐™˜๐™š๐™จ๐™จ๐™ž๐™ซ๐™š ๐™ž๐™ฃ ๐™ก๐™ž๐™›๐™š, ๐™œ๐™ค๐™š๐™จ ๐™ฌ๐™ง๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™œ.

Letโ€™s start with zooming into specific areas and identifying the giveaways of being overfilled ๐Ÿ™ˆ (Disclaimer : here to educate for sharing purposes, not to make fun of anyone or create hate).

I used to call this the Hollywood syndrome. No doubt fuller cheeks make you look younger but overly puffed up cheeks give you an overstuffed pillow appearance and sunset eyes ( eyes squished and end up looking smaller). It’s not sexy

You know this one. Lips are one of the most common areas where fillers tend to go overboard, leading to over-plumped lips. This can also happen if you receive the wrong range of filler or if you fall into the wrong hands. You can avoid this by making sure that you only see a trained and experienced injector.

Considering the nose bridge is a confined area with limited space, fillers tend to spread sideways overtime, resulting in a broader nose. When it comes to liquid nose job, ๐’๐’†๐’”๐’” ๐’Š๐’” ๐’‚๐’๐’˜๐’‚๐’š๐’” ๐’Ž๐’๐’“๐’†.

It is important to talk to your aesthetic doctor about your expectations and budget before going for any facial contouring procedures. Underfilling with fillers may end up with unsatisfied outcome whilst overfilling it can be disastrous.
