A 23-year-old male asked:
Cortisol causes bone resorption, would it resorb my cheekbone implants made from rib cartilage?

Rib: You should see the doctor who did the cheekbone implants and see if there is any change.
A baseline bone density study would be in order but you would only need worry about your bones if the density T-score is more than -2.5.
