Dear Surgeons, I am looking for a plastic surgeon who can do hydroxyapatite implants directly on the bone for the orbital rim-malar aspect, NOT a filler. Would anybody be willing to recommend me, as i have been searching for a long time Thanks

I think you are going to be searching a lot longer. There were some medical journal articles proposing the use of hydroxyappetite implants and crystals about 10 years ago. These proved so hard to work with that most surgeons I know abandoned that approach years ago. The implants were too brittle and the injectable crystals tended to shift with gravity and movement before they congealed and hardened.
