Summary: All fillers are associated with the risk of both early and late complications. Early side effects such as swelling, redness, and bruising occur after intradermal or subdermal injections. The patient has to be aware of and accept these risks. Adverse events that last longer than 2 weeks can be attributable to technical shortcomings (e.g., too superficial an implantation of a long-lasting filler substance). Such adverse events can be treated with intradermal 5-fluorouracil, steroid… 
Skin necrosis of the nasal ala after injection of dermal fillers.
TLDR
Generally, injectable, nonpermanent soft tissue augmentation materials are well tolerated and can be used safely in almost all candidates for facial augmentation, but these fillers are associated with the risk of early and late side effects and complications.
Complications of injectable fillers and neurotoxins
TLDR
Side effects of the various cosmetic injectable products, including both injectable neurotoxins and soft tissue fillers, are often technique associated, such as placing the filler too superficial or unintentional paralysis of facial muscles.
Foreign Body Granulomas after All Injectable Dermal Fillers: Part 2. Treatment Options
Summary: Foreign body granulomas occur at certain rates with all injectable dermal fillers. They have to be distinguished from early implant nodules, which usually appear 2 to 4 weeks after
Etiology, Prevention, and Management of Infectious Complications of Dermal Fillers.
TLDR
It is important to focus on prevention through eliciting a thorough patient history including an injection history, practicing sterile technique, and minimizing tissue trauma, to curtail complication rates.
Dermal fillers: pathophysiology, prevention and treatment of complications
TLDR
The key complications including pigmentary changes, hypersensitivity reactions, infections, nodule formation, granulomatous reactions, vascular occlusion and migration of filler material are discussed.
Management Patterns of Delayed Inflammatory Reactions to Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers: An Online Survey in Israel
TLDR
The varied approach regarding the management of delayed type reactions to HA-based filler injections, reflected in this study, illustrates the existing ambivalence in the current literature regarding themanagement and therapy of late-onset complications.
Patient factors influencing dermal filler complications: prevention, assessment, and treatment
TLDR
This manuscript aims to summarize the crucial aspects of patient selection, including absolute contraindications as well as situations that warrant caution, and also covers important considerations for the pre- and posttreatment periods as wellAs during the procedure itself.
Another face of dermal fillers
TLDR
The aim of this study is to present possible complications related to dermal fillers, to explain their aetiology and to propose preventive management and treatment.

Foreign Body Granulomas after All Injectable Dermal Fillers: Part 1. Possible Causes
TLDR
Permanent implants are not characterized by a higher rate of foreign body granuloma per se than temporary implants; however, their clinical appearance is more pronounced and their persistence longer if not treated adequately.
