Silicone has been used as filler by cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists for over 30 years with good lasting results. Although the FDA has not specifically approved the cosmetic use of the agent, the FDA modernization act of 1997 allows licensed physicians to use these agents “off label” for other purposes; similar to the numerous uses for BOTOX before it was approved for cosmetic procedures.

 Silicone is used commonly for soft tissue defects or facial augmentation including lips, lines, cheeks, under the eye area, and for HIV associated facial wasting. This product provides a very natural looking permanent solution for patients today.
