The Daily Mail Nip & Tuck 17th July 2017
The Nip & Tuck articles by Dr Tracy Mountford appear weekly, in print and online, in the Monday ‘Inspire’ section. In this week’s column, a reader asks what they can do about their cheek fillers:
Dr Mountford explains that, as long as the fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, they can be dissolved. This can be done using an enzyme called hyaluronidase, which breaks down the hyaluronic acid. If, however, the fillers are long lasting, this corrective treatment cannot be used. Though fortunately, it is very rare for doctors in the UK to use long lasting fillers.
You should visit a skilled cosmetic doctor for this procedure. It is routinely used in cosmetic medicine and is very well tolerated and after two weeks, any corrective treatment you might choose to have can then be performed.
