Question : Are flu-like symptoms a possible side effect of fillers?
Answer : Any injectable compound can cause the patient to have flu-like side effects. This complication is very rare after fillers. If you experience any undue or unusual side effect after a filler injection, it’s very important to see your surgeon immediately. I use all types of fillers depending on what’s needed and this is best determined after a consultation. Also, after receiving injectable fillers, it’s very important that the physician provide you with an information sheet telling you exactly what to expect and when to seek medical attention as well as follow-up appointments.
