I loved results of mid facelift and fat transfer at week 3; however, fat transfer is not particularly effective as marionette/ smile lines are quickly returning. Fat transfer to lips reduced significantly within 4 weeks. The office staff and physician are excellent and I highly recommend them; however, perhaps fat transfer on thin, quick metabolizing patients aren't as effective as with... more
I received a shot of Kenalog from a nurse at an urgent care in Phoenix NOT DR.FRIEDLANDS office. Unfortunately, the shot did not go deep enough, as a side effect my fat on my left side of my buttocks started to sink in (fat atrophy). Dr. Friedland was able to fix it in less than 30 min!

Almost 60 yrs young, eye orbits were hollow and skeletal looking. Intial visit was for Ulthera consult, but he suggested fat transfer would give best results.

I recently had Lipo with Fat Grafting. I am thrilled with the results. My tummy is nice and flat and my face looks much smoother and full. I appear much more youthful which was my goal. I had almost no down time and no bruising. more
