You need an experienced Plastic Surgeon. There is no expert in one procedure as reoval of fat from nasolabial fold..

The ideal method would be micro-liposuction.

However, it depend on the particular situation there might be difficult situations to remove fat transfer, such as scars, fat necrosis, fibrosis that will interfer with the success of the surgery and have to consider what type of final results. Be prepared that you will need a toutch up surgery or procedure to improve on the nasolabial fold after the fat reoval.

a preoperative analysis and examination is important and may tell you what sort of results you can expect and what are your expectationsand how to achieve the results you desire

Removing fat transfer from the face

Dear beettop,

  • I have experience removing volume from fat transfers to the face
  • With that said, we have to make sure that you are out of the healing period and the fat is no longer changing
  • We would start with some injections before jumping to microliposuction because the liposuction takes a lot of finesse and is used as one of our last resorts
