Hi Amie, thank you for the question.
This is a difficult question to answer but typically all doctors charge per vial or syringe of filler used. I also believe that this is a good example that all patients need to discuss the possibility of further treatments in the same area if one filler is not enough. We typically reduce the fee for a second filler in the same area and it may be worth making another consultation with your dermatologist.
If he or she promised you that one would be enough then it is a good idea for them to have a look at the end result. If they did not make this promise then one could bring up that Juvederm make a smaller size filler (Juvederm Smile 0 55ml) which may be less than the R 2,500.00.
I am sorry that you are in this predicament but the only solution is to have the other side treated.
