Hi. I wanted to know if you could give me some pointers on getting back my lower body shape, i.e. my legs & buttocks are mere toothpicks and it's really painful to sit down because my buttocks is so bony. Also, I have facial wasting and am experiencing sunken cheeks, deepened wrinkles, and I look really tired. I read in POZ Magazine that polylactic acid was being used to "regain one's face" by injecting it into the cheeks. I would appreciate any information you could give me & also any studies I could participate in because I can't afford plastic/reconstructive surgery. I live in Louisville, KY, but would travel for the study. THANK YOU SO MUCH !!
I just answered a question on polylactic acid. In a nutshell: I don't think this is available yet in the US and I would love additional information. Other techniques that have been tried for facial wasting include facial implants, collagen injections, fat tissue transplantation. But no concrete info on any of these techniques has yet to emerge.
As for the lower body we are similarly at a loss for definite interventions. Some of us are trying megace in an attempt to put on weight that is predominantly fat. Don't know if that will work: namely will the fat go where we want it to go? Keep tuned for further info in the future.
