With the increasing use of hyaluronic acid-based injectable fillers for cosmetic enhancement a variety of adverse reactions are being reported in the literature. Although most adverse outcomes occur early we describe an interesting case study of a female presenting with granulomatous complications ten years postoperatively. To our knowledge this is one of the longest reported delayed reactions. For the general dental practitioner offering such treatments it is important to be fully aware of the potential risks and how they may be managed in order to consent appropriately for cosmetic procedures.
