Can Injectable Fillers Be Placed Above Lateral Orbital Rim – Brow Implants?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Just wanted to check in and Thank You for the Lateral Orbit Rim – Brow Implants, I really enjoy having a broader profile both above and around my eyes! 

I also realized I liked having some of the extra swelling on the sides of my eyes that pushed the lateral rim out even further.  I wasn’t sure if it was possible to try Fillers on top of the lateral rim implant to try making my appearance even wider around the eyes? (pics below better show my idea)  

Is there any concern about infecting the implants when using Injectable Fillers near them? If I did like the temporary Injectable Filler, could Allofill then be used for a semi-permanent effect?  

Thank you for any advice!

A: You can have fillers placed above the lateral orbital rim – brow implants in the subcutaneous tissues. Just be sure the injector knows that there are implants underneath and the injector should not try and place the filler down at the ‘bone level’….which is what they would normally do when trying to augment a skeletal structure.
