Abstract

Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is a synthetic injectable medical agent for use as an effective soft tissue filler to treat facial fat volume loss, although complications including nodule formation do occur. We describe a case of foreign body granuloma formation in an immunocompetent patient who received PLLA in the periorbital region for soft tissue aesthetic enhancement and treated with surgical intervention by subciliary approach.
