Safe to put filler in the body?

Is there any doctor that could place filler in areas such as my fingers, wrists, feet, toes, ankles, underneath the butt( stretch mark area), neck, d├ęcolletage, or knees? If not, why? Is there too much risk of compromising a blood vessel? If so couldn't the doctor make it safe by aspirating before filling?

Filler may be reasonable in some of those areas, but an exam would be necessary to determine the appropriateness of that intervention. Filler to many areas can get very costly very quickly. Fat grafting often makes more sense and produces natural, long-lasting results.
