WORTH IT RATING 344 reviews over 24 months
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 ›

At first I was just looking to have my hollow cheeks injected with my own fat and found Dr. Sadati on-line. My first consultation was over 3hrs! He was so patience and I felt instantly comfortable with him. Then I started thinking about a breast Augmentation to just fill in my 36 B/C size push... READ MORE

I can't tell you enough wonderful things about my fat trxs. I was able to tell immediately that it worked. Healing was not bad for me. I was virtually in no pain where the fat trans. was on my eyes. There were no lumps or bumps, no (crawly bug feelings) and as of today it's all still... READ MORE

I am 51 years old and I had my face fat transfer done about 7 months ago. I'm very happy with my results. I heard about it from some tv shows and started doing my research. I ended up choosing the FAMI technique. The doctor I went to also activates the stem cells in my harvested fat with PRP... READ MORE

This has been really hard. I got really bruised and also it hurt a lot. I felt like there were little bugs in my face that I could not scratch out. I am really swollen and look like a cat. Everywhere i go people stare at me and make snide remarks behind my back. Hopefully, this will be worth it... READ MORE

I had fat transfer under eyes in my early 20ties to plump up the hollows. It was way overdone and I have been getting cortisone shots to dissolve it and it is fine for maybe a month and then it starts growing back. Within a few months, it is all back and looks very abnormal - see pictures. I... READ MORE

I used to be so happy with myself , except for some wrinkling on my lower eyelids that I thought would be fixed by the fat transfer procedure. I went to a doctor that had great before and afters, but unfortunately, he did not tell me that i had any other options besides the fat transfer. Had i... READ MORE

Had under eyes hollows filled with fat transfer but as you can see on the photo i have a lump under my right eye. I told him to remove it and he tried with some sort of liposuction needle but said that nothing came out and tat it isnt fat tissue but some swelling only and that it will pass in 15... READ MORE

At age 46 I didn't like the sagging crepe like skin that was appearing on my cheeks so I had a fat transfer along with a facelift and brow lift in November 2009. I really loved the results. I didn't look pulled or altered just younger and refreshed. I have had many compliments. A... READ MORE

Friends teased that if I had more fat in my face, I wouldn't have so many wrinkles. Fat transfer made a big difference for me. My hands and face were injected with fat taken from ab and hips. Pros were it was a minor procedure, with no pain, no more nervous than if you were having a... READ MORE

I had it done in two stages. Stage one in 2009 and stage two in 2010. It replaced volume loss in my face due to age. These pictures are 4 weeks post-op from stage 2 fat transfer. I will post more soon. READ MORE

I am upset because almost a year ago I got a mid face lift and fat transfer from my stomach into my face.The wrinkles are gone but boy do I look fat with this big huge face. I am disappointed and have to go to a new surgeon next month to fix this.Any suggestions?Oh I am 53. READ MORE

I had a fat grafting around my eyes over 5 months ago. The effect has been poor. One eye has triple creases while the crease on the other one is gone because of the puffiness caused by the drapping fat. The doctor told me fat transfer is not permanent and I would need to go back for a refill in... READ MORE

I had chin implant in December, 2008. After healing, it left my right & left sides of my chin very wrinkled. The doctors said I needed a fat transfer to fill it in. I trusted their judgment. On the 7th of July, 2009 I had a fat transfer to cover the wrinkled tissue (they did not know... READ MORE

My motivation was I saw a picture of myself and realized under my eyes and laugh lines were hollow and deep. I had been going to Dr Miller for years for Botox. I was always happy with the outcome so if was time to take the next step with fillers. We did the standard fillers for about 2 yrs then... READ MORE

I recently had a lazerlift (no is not misspell) that is the name use for marketing purposes for Laser lift. Here is how they promoted: "Because LazerLift is minimally invasive, there’s no need to subject yourself to the physical trauma, risk, invasive incisions, extended downtime, and high... READ MORE

I really liked my face.In hindsight,the minimal "refreshing" I wanted was something that at my age should have been done with fillers. Myth 1) It's non-invasive.I was shocked at my appearance after the procedure and was swollen for months.It invaded my life. Myth 2) It... READ MORE

All the preparation is certainly easier than waiting for results. Today is the two week mark and I am extremely tired which could be a product of the travel whether than the result of the procedures. I had additional procedures which will require separate reviews due to the design of RealSelf... READ MORE
