Lipo = Disability?
Jun 7, 2001

Hi, I am noticing Lipo in my face, my cheeks are shrinking little by little....and people at work are noticing it as well. Can I go on disability with this HIV medication side effect? This is effecting my work.....

Response from Dr. Feinberg

I am not a disability expert, but I doubt it. While you are very self-conscious about it, loss of fat in the cheeks is a cosmetic issue, not a health/disability issue.
