Im a 28 year old hiv undetectable male. I smoked a lot over the last three years and recently quit. Im worried my fingers and arms will remain bony. Possibly muscle atrophy. Is there any natural way of returning fat to these areas over time?

fat can be gained after smoking cessations, and fat can be lipoed from the forearms. Best, Dr. Emer.
