Permanent Fillers In Young (Early 20s) Patients? Risky?
3 years ago
I'm 21 (& thin) with a concave skeleton so I have noticeable lower eyelid grooves as well as nasolabial folds. My question is, if I use permanent fillers (Artefill/Silikon), will my later facial sagging&collagen loss lead 2 downward migration of the fillers? Put more clearly, will the permanent filler in my eyelids end up on my cheeks& the permanent filler in my folds fall onto my lower lip with more cheek descent? Or with a facelift down the road ... will the permanent fillers cause problems?

I am one of the leading experts in permanent filler complications. I would advise you to begin with reversible fillers with HA before moving forward with silicone or PMMA.
We have cared for many patients in their twenties with congenital lower eye lid grooves using Silikon-1000, an off-label filler for permanent results. Feel free to re-ask your question with photos for more specific advice.
Hope this helps you.
