It's eight years out and I still can't stand looking at myself. I had fat injected in the nasolabial folds, but the doctor decided to extend the fat halfway up my face. Some of it is gone, but I have prominent lumps on both sides of my face which make me look distorted. Can anyone recommend a doctor in or near Chicago to remove the fat?

To remove fat from the nasolabial area and the cheeck area may require liposuction and or a face lift approach, to correct for the deformities the removal may leave. Also the fat injected could be in many planes.See a BOARD CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON (AMERICAN BOARD OF PLASTIC SURGERY)..
Also many plastic surgeons have excellent experience with facial surgeries, facial plastic surgeons dedicate their entire practice to this type of surgery and likely will have more experience.
