Jaw filler is a popular cosmetic treatment that can help to enhance the jawline and create a more defined and chiseled look. However, like any cosmetic procedure, there are risks involved, and some people have reported jaw filler horror stories. In this article, we’ll explore some of the potential risks and complications of jaw filler, and provide tips for avoiding the pitfalls and ensuring a safe and successful treatment.

Jaw fillers in Melbourne are getting more and more popular, and so are chin fillers.

Let’s look at some horror stories and make you rethink who you get your treatment done by.

Firstly, I have always said this. What do you value yourself at? If you are an apple and have a turnover of 1 Trillion Plus, you don’t go to the accountant on Dandenong Road in Oakleigh to get your books done. You don’t go to your mum’s friend who has a shop in Hawthorne next to the cobbler. You go to KPMG, PWC, or the top-tier accounting firms!

So the same goes for your face and body. Next time when you go get your cosmetic treatments done, value yourself more. Please don’t risk it. Get it done with a medical practitioner with experience in aesthetics or cosmetic medicine. It’s a cowboy field out there.

Ok, so now let’s get back to horror stories with Jaw fillers.

Jaw Filler Horror Stories

While many people have had successful jaw filler treatments, there have also been some jaw filler horror stories reported. These can include complications such as infection, inflammation, overfilling, asymmetry, and even nerve damage. Some people have reported experiencing significant pain, swelling, and bruising after their jaw filler treatments, and in some cases, they have required additional medical treatment or corrective procedures.

Jaw filler Horror Story 1:

This is done in the chin and without a cannula. Cosmetic doctors don’t get lazy or know how to use a cannula. They don’t drawback when injecting, and the worst is, they don’t know anatomy; they feel like you are an ATM. Get it right by going to med school and immersing yourself in post-op care, I say. So essentially injecting into the blood vessel, that is what’s happened here.

Dissolve Dissolve Dissolve. Expensive but saves a lifetime. Get antibiotics. Get steroids and hyperbaric oxygen treatment. This horror story was then treated appropriately, and the patient understood the complications involved.

Injecting into the submental artery silly!

Jaw Fillers Gone Bad

The good old backyard job. This is done without care and follows and lets the wound fester. When you inject into an artery and don’t know how to manage it, you reassure yourself with lovely tea, coffee, good music, and yeh! That’s it. Neglecting the science behind fillers and not knowing what you are doing will lead to complications like this.

Images like this I have seen in my clinical practice. This is pure neglect and injecting straight into or compressing a blood vessel without knowing the actual anatomy.

The best way to avoid these issues is to see someone who has holistic care at the core of your treatment. Medically trained means a doctor who has an excellent aesthetic sense and great knowledge of the science behind these treatments.

Understanding the Risks

To avoid jaw filler horror stories, it’s important to understand the potential risks and complications of this treatment. Infection and inflammation are among the most common risks, and can be caused by improper injection technique or poor hygiene. Overfilling can also occur, leading to an unnatural or unbalanced appearance, while nerve damage is a more serious complication that can cause lasting pain, numbness, or even paralysis.

Tips for Avoiding Pitfalls

To avoid jaw filler horror stories and ensure a safe and successful treatment, there are several tips you should follow. First, choose a qualified and experienced practitioner who has a track record of successful jaw filler treatments. Ask to see before and after photos of their previous patients, and read reviews from other people who have undergone the same treatment.

Next, be sure to discuss your goals and expectations with your practitioner, and make sure you understand the risks and potential complications of the procedure. Finally, follow all pre- and post-treatment instructions carefully, and report any unusual symptoms or side effects to your practitioner right away.

Conclusion: Avoiding Jaw Filler Horror Stories

Jaw filler can be a highly effective way to enhance the appearance of the jawline and create a more youthful and defined look. However, it’s important to be aware of the potential risks and complications, and to choose a qualified and experienced practitioner to perform the treatment. By following these tips and taking a cautious approach to jaw filler, you can avoid horror stories and enjoy the benefits of a safe and successful treatment.
