Abstract

Dermal filler injections are common cosmetic procedures and are growing in popularity. While frequently performed, dermal filler injections carry a risk of adverse events including vascular compromise and foreign body granulomas. Here, we discuss an unusual case of a patient with a history of dermal filler injections presenting with a parotid mass and an eyebrow mass requiring surgical resection. This case demonstrates the risk of delayed granuloma formation many years after dermal filler injection and highlights the importance of awareness and management of these potential long-term complications.
