Modern vaccine would cause side effects in people with cosmetic surgeries

The FDA noted that several cosmetic surgery trial participants have already experienced side effects

The Modern Covid-19 vaccine can cause side effects in people who have had cosmetic surgeries , the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported.

The FDA’s advisory committee said that people with cosmetic facial fillers may experience swelling and inflammation with the Moderna vaccine, after several fillers trial participants were found to have experienced these side effects.

Your immune system, which causes inflammation, kicks in when you get a vaccine, that’s how it’s supposed to work, said Dr. Shirley Chi, noting that side effects were easily treated by medical staff.

“So it makes sense that you see an immune response in certain areas where you see some substance that is not a natural substance in your body.”

However, he said the side effects shouldn’t stop people from getting the vaccine.

In these cases, all the patients had swelling and inflammation in the area that received the filler, Chi said.

“A couple of patients had a cheek filler six months before the vaccine and one patient had a lip filler two days after the vaccine. All were treated with steroids and antihistamines and all their reactions resolved. “

Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine was approved this Friday by the FDA, as an alternative to one from Pfizer and BioNTech.

Both work “better than we almost dared hope,” NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins told The Associated Press.

The first results of large studies, still unfinished, show that both vaccines appear safe and strongly protective, although Moderna is easier to handle since it does not need to be stored at deep-frozen temperatures.
