I'm a twenty-eight year old male recently judged a suitable canditate for fat-transfer by a surgeon here in Eastern Canada. The problem I presented with was significant displacement of tendons and tissue, a sort of drooping on the right side of my face stemming from 15 years of sucking my thumb and pulling everything far from where it should be.
The tissue supposed to be tucked around my nose, for example, has been displaced as least as far as the corner of my mouth, and in some parts even down to my jawline.
Can fat grafting compensate for these (non-skeletal) structural deviations? My concern is that adding fat on top of a displaced foundation could actually exaggerate the imperfections and end up making things worse. Since this is an irreversible procedure, I would greatly value any insight that could be given.
