I have been having new-fill injections in my face for lipo. They have been very successful and I have had my face restored.

But after my last injections two weeks ago in my cheeks and temples, I now experience some numbness/cold sensation and pain in my jaw area. It comes and goes, usually at night. Do you know what would cause this? Is this serious, or will it pass with time.

Response from Dr. Moyle

I've not heard of this as a side effect of newfill. Most likely some of the swelling around the injections site or during the injection a nerve has been bumped or irritated. This type of thing generally settles over a couple of weeks. If it doesn't do go and talk to your doctor about it Best Wishes Graeme Moyle
