subtle changes
Dec 31, 2003

Hi from Madrid. I am not on meds. Do I have to wait till my face alters drastically because of hiv infection or may I have some facial surgery now that I have these subtle changes ?

Response from Dr. Moyle

If you getting facial changes while naive to meds they may be simply part of your natural aging process. Have a look at you Dad's face and see if you subtle changes are similar to his age related changes. If you results are good and you are well it is unlikely to be related to HIV, wasting etc. Regards Graeme Moyle
