Are fillers okay to get if you already have a mid face implant?

I have mid face implants and a doctor said it was okay to get Juvederm along with them. Is this true? Thank you!

It would be okay to have Juvederm placed after completely healing from cheek / midface implant surgery. In fact, injectable Hyaluronic Acid Fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Beletero, etc.) may be an excellent way to provide a softer more natural result. Be sure to chose an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon's office, with proper attention to sterile technique for your procedures.

Having a mid facial implant is like having a more prominent malar bone. If aging causes a cosmetic defect over the bone, you would treat it with a filler. If aging has caused a defect over the implant that can be treated with a filler, then the filler would be the same as placing it over the bone. There may be a slight increased risk of infection with the implant rather than the bone, but this is small and careful technique should generally protect you. I have frequently used fat over implants, especially to hide an implant edge from loss of the normal fat, with no problem.
