facial wasting

Sep 2, 2007

i have had two fillings with silicone 1000. The doctor did a great job and filled my cheeks nicely.. it was relatively inexpensive. But what is the long term effect of this in my cheeks.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

We don't know the long term effects yet. In the short term, it appears to be well tolerated. Whether there will be inflammatory or other reactions associated with permanent placement of silicon in the face remains to be seen.
