Injectable Silicone for facial wasting
Feb 16, 2004

I have facial wasting and have looked into possibly going with Injectable Silicone. I browsed through the data for lipodystrophy but didn't see anything on this. What is your opinion?

Response from Dr. Moyle

Opinions vary...silicon oil is under investigation at a centre in LA. The main problem with silicon is local inflamatory reactions...some people get left with red patches at the site of injcetion. As silicon doesn't biodegrade any problems with it are permanent. Generally, I prefer other fillers like newfill or bioalcamid. For details see's lipodystrophy pages

Radiance filler is a failure
