Abstract

Soft tissue fillers are a safe option for treatment and rejuvenation, but complications can occur. The formation of nodules or granulomas is one of the most commonly long-term complications. We report a case of a patient that was submitted to a nasogenian sulcus filling with PMMA 15 years ago that developed a possible foreign body granuloma after a new procedure where she was submitted so alar and zygomatic filling with hyaluronic acid years after the first procedure.
