Has anyone here had any personal experience with this, resolution(s), support, contact with regards to the information here on this site? I'm considering taking the plunge and having some resolution to this condition. And could utalize your knowledge, insight, and expertise as to how you were to accomplish this.

Thank you family
Mark

You mean getting that goo injected into your cheeks? You need to think about that and talk to and look at some people who have had it done. I don't like the look, and don't see it as a big change or a good change from the atrophy.

Whatever floats your boat, but cement injections, yuck.

If you are talking about injections, I think you should counsel with people who have had it done. Some I know have had only limited sucess. I understand there is a great deal of difference between procedures. Those promising long term solutions may not be true.
I find the recessed cheeks on some men is distinctive, like baldness, grey hair and a barrel body. Real beauty is accepting the way you are.

I've been using Sculptra a for a year now, and I go about every two months for refills. It's expensive, it's about $500 every time I go, and it's not covered by any insurance. It's kind of like "my mink coat!" I may be very vain, but I work as a fashion designer, live in New York, and it's all about how you look. And I didn't want to look like I was walking around in people would notice that I have AIDS. I have no body fat, as it is, and the face was just too much to deal with so I discovered Sculptra.
