If I had a fat graft, where do you think the injections should be, anatomically (closer to mouth, sitting right under the zygomatic region...)? I like the idea of fat grafts,... READ MORE

Would cheek implants or fat graft be the right solution for my mid face, and would there be long term effects? (Photo)

Taping nose DOWN to prevent bulbous swelling and upturned nose?

So I've heard that doctors will tape the nose so that it rotates up right after surgery, but is it possible to apply tape in a way to decrease nose projection? I'm almost two... READ MORE

I think either that or shaving off part of the dorsum/ or long part of the "L" shape of my nose READ COMMENT

You look really good :) I'm happy that you had a satisfactory result, hoping to find the same thing. READ COMMENT
