Fat Transfer Gave Me a Young, Natural Look

I swear by fat grafting and nothing else. I have had it done three times and have also tried Juvederm and Restylane. The results just don’t compare! I like that fat grafting is natural. This was my number one priority going into it. But you want to know about the results. Fabulous! I’ve tried fat injections in my tear troughs, around my eyes and in my nasiolabial folds. This was two separate trips (once for eyes, later for nose). Each time I thought the fat did a good job of doing what it was supposed to do and looking natural. Well, it IS natural! I had gone for the more highly publicized fads like Juvederm and Restylane in the past and they disappointed me. I felt that they did what they were advertised to do, filling out your face, but I looked exactly like that – filled, like a water balloon. I don’t want to have fine lines but I also don’t want to look puffy. Someone might try to pop me! I wondered a lot about where those fillers go when you’re metabolising and since I metabolise pretty quick it was a concern. No worries with fat though! Am I stressing the “natural” bit too much? I don’t think so. Think of all those women who tried breast implants when they first came out, only to have them leak into their bodies and poison them. I’m staying away from that possibility here. If you’re going to improve yourself, this is the way to go.
