As the popularity of soft tissue fillers increases, so do the reports of adverse events. During the COVID-19 pandemic, dermal fillers made headlines as it was reported that some patients who had cosmetic fillers experienced side effects after receiving the COVID-19 vaccines that utilize mRNA technology. The most serious complications are vascular in nature and unfortunately include the possibility of blindness. Although the risk of blindness from fillers is rare, it is critical for injecting physicians to have a firm knowledge of the vascular anatomy and to understand key prevention and management strategies. The risk of complication is greater for less experienced practitioners and there needs to be a greater focus on anatomy, injection technique and product-specific variables. Hence, the need for this book. Other reasons exist, including choice of product, improper injection technique resulting in nodule formation, surface irregularities, overcorrection, and asymmetry. As this is an emerging field of medicine, different strategies of correction tend to exist, The authors hope this book may be of value to all the young doctors who are wondering what career path to follow.
