Plastic surgery for HIV
Jan 13, 2002

I am HIV postive and living in tokyo and had started to have facial wasting on my cheek and thinking under go colleagen injection , what do u think and anu recommandation??

Response from Dr. Feinberg

You can certainly try it and see if it works for you. I'm not aware of any study of collagen injections for fat loss in HIV+s that shows that it works without fail, but it certainly won't harm you. And it may help. Good luck!

Have they found cure for AIDS??
