Hiv and plastic surgery.
Jun 14, 2011

Hi Keith.

I am wondering if people with hiv can get chin reduction surgery? I hate how my chin looks and have wanted to get it fixed for ages.

And if so, any advice on how to find a surgeon. I am sure some places do plastic surgery on hiv positive patients.

The few places I emailed were very rude in response.

Thank you.

Response from Dr. Henry

HIV+ patients generally do well with a wide range of surgery including plastic surgery. I would ask a local HIV/AIDS service organization who they have heard good things about in your region. KH

prophylactics & effects of skin aging
skinproblems/rash after 5 or more years on Norvir
