Fat transfer (otherwise known as fat grafting) is a process that involves harvesting fat cells from other parts of the body and injecting them into the treatment site. This is done to increase the volume in areas such as the cheeks, lips, breasts, and butt. Fat transfer can also help reduce the appearance of pitted acne scars. While results are long-lasting, they should not be considered permanent. LEARN MORE ›

Five years ago I had an operation on my neck to get rid of what felt to me like a turkey gobbler. Although I think the plastic surgeon who did the procedure was very effective, I did not like how the procedure aged overtime. I found Dr. Tansavatdi over the Internet (she consistently had...

I have had skinny forearms and legs since birth. When I first started using the gym frequently about 5 years ago it became apparent to me that they were significantly thin as compared to the average person. Being tall exacerbated the situation so after a few years of trying to fix the problem in... READ MORE

Lipo was performed on outer thighs under a local, then applied to my face. I have no result at all on my face. Also my right thigh has a lump. Looks like Dr has missed a spot. So disappointing. The worst part is Dr offered me revision surgery ( $600 Aus Dollars) and asked me to accept their... READ MORE

I was referred to Dr Karam by my esthetician, who had nothing but positive things to say about his work. What she told me, which did influence my decision- is that Dr Karam only works on the face. Many plastic surgeons work on face and body, and after she said this to me, I realized that it is... READ MORE

I had a fat transfer done back in the summer of 2013 by dr Ganchi, the results was subtle and beautiful and it makes me look much more feminine. But I still have nasolabial fold. So I went in to consult with dr Ganchi again. He recommended in the future maybe a Lowe face lift and now basically... READ MORE

I had fat transfer to eyelid area. I was told that my desired expectations were realistic. I had three revisions which was very expensive and my results are not at all what I wanted. I'm very unhappy. Staff was not professional the last couple times I was in. I'm very unhappy with results and I... READ MORE

I am a 54 year old female who had lived with a botched lipsuction result for 7 years before seeking out a way to fix my deformed arms (and the arms are not the only botched part of my body). I had a Portland Clinic who advertises ALOT on TV, convince me that doing thousands of dollars worth of... READ MORE

I was didn't like my under eye bags. I looked tired all the time. I went in to see Dr Ronan thinking I needed to have blepharoplasty. Dr Ronan recommend I do fat grafting.

I dont want to have fillers for ever so I thought I would go for fat transfer. I had Isologen over 10 years ago and it was brilliant so I thought I would do a similar thing and hope for just as good results. i am going to Turkey to have some dental work done and i am hoping to get it done then...

I wanted something to help fill out the area under my cheekbones (submalar region), which had become particularly gaunt-looking with the loss of facial fat over the years. Although radiesse was another option, I decided to try fat transfer (to upper lip as well). I am now 6.5 weeks... READ MORE

After deciding to have my breast implants removed after 22 years, I opted to do a fat transfer (fat liposuctioned from my back waist area) to fill in the area which had been previously fill with an implant. As an after thought, I asked my surgeon if he could just put a little around my eyes... READ MORE

So far Dr. Khouri seems good. I like that he uses a needle and no stitches so hopefully no scars. They are in touch a lot before the surgery, and are prompt to respond. I was going to go with another Doctor possibly, for a minute, but he makes incisions. All around Dr. Khouri seems ok to do. ... READ MORE

Dr. Kelly from start to finish was very patient, he answered all my thoughts and concerns. And made me feel so comfortable that I trusted him with my surgery. He double and triple checked what was my body's goal. Even after my surgery he was easy to reach.And the most important of all I love my... READ MORE

After an unfortunate liposuction procedure removed most of the fat in my lower face, I had a lower face/neck-lift. Although I looked improved, I needed volume to assist in restoring a previous appearance. I saw Dr. Sydney Coleman & proceeded with a fat transfer procedure. Excellent consultation... READ MORE

During my first consult I wanted upper and lower eye surgery. I chose this surgeon due to so many reviews. My mistake was he did not have any reviews for this surgery and he highly recommended using fat transfer on entire face, including under eyes. I got scared and tried to cancel the fat... READ MORE

I live in las Vegas and I'm really serious about this but would love to... READ MORE

In my opinion Dr. Gulin is without exception the most knowledgeable, skilled and compassionate plastic surgeon. After 5 years of suffering from what can only be described as disfigurement caused by the hands of another plastic surgeon, he did what other doctors said was impossible and restored... READ MORE

My motivation was I saw a picture of myself and realized under my eyes and laugh lines were hollow and deep. I had been going to Dr Miller for years for Botox. I was always happy with the outcome so if was time to take the next step with fillers. We did the standard fillers for about 2 yrs then... READ MORE

I recently had a lazerlift (no is not misspell) that is the name use for marketing purposes for Laser lift.
