Can Wrist Size Be Increased With Fillers?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Is it possible to increase wrist size diameter with fillers? I am insecure about my 6 inch puny looking wrists and I’d love to wear a wider watch. How difficult would this be?

A: I have no experience in putting fillers into any extremity including the wrist. And even if it was done the result would be short term as all fillers eventually get reabsorbed. It would make more sense to me to augment the bone at the sides of the wrist (radius or ulna) even though I have never done it for wrist enlargement.
