Side Effects of Restylane Silk Placed in Eye Trough

I just had Restylane fill in my eye trough using a cannula. This morning my eyes are tearing excessively. Is this a cause for concern?

This is likely from swelling but is a bit of an unusual reaction.  I suggest contacting your surgeon to evaluate and make sure there is not a significant problem.

The timeline of when the tearing began plays a role in determining the cause. There are many possibilities depending on what your lower eyelids position was before the filler. This may be from swelling or it may be from excess laxity of the lower eyelid with a changed position from the filler. I would recommend calling your plastic surgeon that did the injection so they can follow you closely and make sure you do not end up with any eye problems. Good luck!
