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