Restylane post facelift

I recently had resty to add cheek volume as my PS didn't add fat at time of FL in 2008. My jowls were gone and now they're back as the restylane has settled into the marrionette area causing a watery, mushy mess. I also have a lump under my lip that wasn't there before the resty. Initial filler was done 1-31. Dr has used enzymes to try and reduce jowl area. Not sure wwhat else to do. I am depressed about how this looks. Will it go away in time? I heard resty can stay for years! It feels very heavy down in the lower face area and under my neck. Like its pulling all the time. Will this absorb over time or am i looking at a redo with my FL? None of this was there before the filler. It feels like fluid in the lower face area-can this be drained? It has also cause more creases in the smile lines. Absolutely awful.
