Someone correct me if I'm wrong but it seems like everyone who has gotten the procedure from the Dr. In Atlanta using needles instead of a cannula, is having issues with nodules. Mine was done in Australia with a Cannula and I have never had an issue with nodules. I have to wonder why someone would be using this technique when it is widely accepted as less safe.
you mean Dr. M?  If so, the member "Texas" had it done by him.  How can I message him to comment?

I believe most of us that had the procedure done there are satisfied. I am satisfied so far. But i do think most of us have nodule formation. I do, Bonsi does, Texas does, i believe Think may have mentioned it as well (not 100% sure about Think). I'm not sure about Researching regarding nodules. Mine appeared about two weeks post procedure. When i felt them forming i definitely massaged/rubbed them firmly and thoroughly, but it didn't change them or prevent them at all.

Same here. I have two rubbery nodules that formed about 2 - 3 weeks out. Dr. Carney believes it to be scar tissue from the reaction to the inflammation process. I had 12 ml, they won't go above 10 anymore in one session for this reason. I'm going in for a few endostinulation treatments, will let you know how it goes. Other than that I really like ellanse.

Does anyone know why the doctor is using needles and not a cannula? Is it possible that a somewhat prehistoric method might have something to do with it? I think there is 1 other person that had it done in Australia using a cannula. I'm not sure if they had the issue or not.

Would you describe the texture as rubbery? Or something else?

@think 

yeah. they are small, both located in the circ scar area, roughly the size of a grain of rice each, and rubbery/firm to the touch. 

have you tried anything to treat them? I'm giving dmso/iodine/hydrocortisone a try but am not terribly optimistic.

Gents, the wife has experienced similar tiny spots with lip injections at a very reputable place in town. It hasn’t bothered her or me, and they said it was normal . Hers starts going away near the time this stuff starts dissolving , which is every 6 months, in time to pay another 500$ for more.

Ellanse results last awhile (estimates range from 4-10 years, maybe longer). Which is a good thing overall, but it comes with an asterisk when considering nodules or other side effects. Unless the nodules are able to be treated in some way, they'll likely be there for a decade.
