Can I Get Fat Injections if I Already Have Aquamid in my Face?
- Asked by bluebell in taiwan

I have severe atrophy of fat in my face due to exercise and having consumed phentermine for weight loss. There is no visible fat in my face and I look extremely gaunt and "flat" with very deep nasolabial folds like a fifty year old though I'm only in my 20s. I already have 2ml of aquamid in my face. Will injecting Sculptra or fat transfer cause any complications/granulomas to the existing Aquamid? Thanks in advance

There is a minor concern with secondarily infecting or colonizing the aquamid. Inmy opinion, I would advise the use of antibiotics prior and subsequent to any fat injections.

There is a chance that either product can result in a lump or bump. If this were to happen, you wouldn't know which product would be the cause. Latent infections related to biofilms could be activated by an injeciton of a new product. Long term fillers might have a greater chance of this happening although this is not proven.
