Response from Dr. Moyle
Unfortunately, if fat is recovering it takes a very long time for it to be obvious. Most likely, if you are off therapy and maintaining or increasing your weight you will be gaining some fat. Five years of lipoatrophy may take five years of recovery. If your results are OK I would stick with the drug holiday but also investigate surgical ways in which your facial wasting could be improved Regards Graeme Moyle
