Round Two - New-Fill (an update)
Mar 23, 2002

I just returned home from my second of what is expected to be four treatments with new-fill with Dr. Engelhard of Miami Beach.

This treatment, although the same amount of substance was injected as my initial treatment, seems to have given even more of a "fill" to my face initially. I know this will subside as my body re-absorbs the water portion -- but it leads me to believe that the first treatment did exactly as was expected and laid a "foundation" for the second and subsequent treatments to build upon.

As before I was met by Dr. Engelhard and the procedure went without a hitch. His kind demeanor and professionalism puts you at ease that you are in excellent hands.

If anyone who has suffered for several years with facial lipoatrophy as I have, wants to check out this option -- I would highly recommend it. You can get further information about his practice at -- he offers many different types of services..but of course I was looking only for the new-fill portion.

I will keep you updated as time/treatments progress. I am very excited about the possibilities of putting an end to having the "look" of HIV.

Kind Regards, D. Beaudette
