COMPLETE WASTE OF $1600.
I saved my money for a year and half for this...
- 13 Nov 2008
I saved my money for a year and half for this procedure, and researched my doc, etc.
I have minimal sagging, but the prominent marionette lines really made me self-concious. I specifically wanted those treated, although he pointed out the tear troughs, & a couple of other spots that I agreed would benefit. At the procedure mostly those areas were addressed, I think. The result - I still had HUGE marionette lines - which is what is went in to correct! Later, when I pointed this out - diplomatically as I could - he said he thought they were kind of cute!!! Please!
My face just resorbed pretty much all of the fat. I really have very little fat any way, which turned out to be a problem when harvesting to transfer also. I even ate everything in site & gained 5 lbs. in an effort to encourage the fat to stay - to no avail.
I DID NOT SO MUCH AS LOOK ONE DAY YOUNGER.
BOTTOM LINE - If your face is on the lean side to begin with, I do not believe this will help. It has been my experience that our faces just will not hold onto the fat.
Also, my photos really did not impress me. If I look down, every wrinkle is exaggerated (horrifying every time lol), and if I am given a mirror to look UP into, I look ten yrs younger - NOTE TO DOCS - WOMEN ARE AWARE OF THIS!
I still feel sooo much regret for the $1600 I wasted...
Think probably he's a good doc, when it's a procedure he's into (probably like actual surgery), or not rushed -he seemed very rushed. NOT good. I only won't recommend him because I feel that it was pretty OBVIOUS that I could have used some more fat (there was a little in reserve), but I don't think he wanted to bother with it...don't know if it would have helped or not...and the cute wrinkle thing - come on!
