How Soon After Liposuction Of PMMA Injections Can I Get Custom Infraorbital-Malar Implants?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I would like to ask you about my options. I had done midface augmentations with injectable PMMA.
The infraorbital area looks a bit empty and I am not happy with results. I choose PMMA because I lost of facial fat by bad diet.
I am planning to take procedure to downsize tissue created by PMMA. Only the soft tissue has been filled with PMMA. No medical complications with PMMA, only poor results.
Is it possible to augment my midface area with infraorbital rim by custom infraorbital-cheek silicone / medpor implants?
If it is possible how many months I will have to wait from liposuctions of PMMA.
A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your information. There is no problem with using bone-based implants (custom infraorbital-malar implants) with any form of injectable filler in the overlying soft tissues. I would wait three months after the last injectable filler treatment so you have a good idea of your actual residual facial contour appearance is.
