I got gortex implants put in for N/F, can I still get fillers like juvederm?

Q:

Hi I have small gortex implants put in to correct my nasolabial folds about 2 years ago. It helped a little bit but did not make much of a difference. Now I want to get injectable fillers to further eliminate my N/F lines. Can I get temp fillers like restylane or juvederm without removing the gortex implants? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

A:

Injectable fillers such as Juvederm and Radiesse are still quite possible after GorTex implants. One just has to be a little more careful in the placement of the filler and the sterile technique.
