Abstract

A 66-year-old female presented for evaluation of progressively worsening edema and palpable masses in both lower eyelids. While she denied prior filler to the lower eyelid or tear trough, histopathology revealed degenerating striated muscle surrounding pools of hyaluronic acid. While cases of gradually enlarging masses associated with facial filler placement have been reported, there is no literature identifying muscle degeneration adjacent to hyaluronic acid filler.
