Fat Transfer: Q&AAsk a Question
Overfilling with Fat Injections
Do most doctors put in more fat than needed when doing fat injections? It seems like since a lot of the fat might not survive, you'd have to put in too much hoping it would go down eventually. I'm just wondering if this is a standard practice because it's the only thing that would explain some of the super overfilled faces I've seen on sites like this.
