Fat transfer (otherwise known as fat grafting) is a process that involves harvesting fat cells from other parts of the body and injecting them into the treatment site. This is done to increase the volume in areas such as the cheeks, lips, breasts, and butt. Fat transfer can also help reduce the appearance of pitted acne scars. While results are long-lasting, they should not be considered permanent. LEARN MORE ›

I... READ MORE

Hi everyone, 16 days ago I've done a nose job plus fat transfer from tight to cheeks and nasolabial folds.

I have been a patient of Dr Sykes for over 10 years. He has done my Botox, fillers, fat transfers, peels, facial lipo, etc. What I appreciate with him is his honesty, he has even discouraged me from getting a few procedures ( which most Dr's will do whatever the patient requests) Very caring,...
