Fat Transfer: Q&AAsk a Question
Do Cheek Fat Injections Dissolve if I Lose Weight?
I am looking to get my cheeks done, and I noticed that the fat injections are a lot cheaper than implants. I was told they last up to a year. If I get the injections and I lost weight at any time, would my body dissolve that fat? My normal facial structure is long and shallow-faced.
