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 ›

I am a 62 year old female. When I was younger, I had very full cheeks. Now that I am older, the fat in my cheeks started to deflate and drop down to the side of my face so that I had jowls and looked like I was upset all the time. This also affected my neck. I was looking to have the fact... READ MORE

I am normally a thin person and the veins in my hands really were noticeable and made me look so much older than what I am. I love what Dr. Nichter did by injection fat into them. Couldn't be happier! Thank you! I will be back. The office was very pleasant and answered all my questions. ... READ MORE

Couldn't be happier with the results. Cheek and lip fat transfer if the answer. I didn't like the pain associated with lip fillers when I had them done at skin care places. In the past I had used them for fillers. It was different every time and I was never pleased. I will in the future... READ MORE

I feel healthy and fabulous at 52 except my face was showing something different. Doctor Corrado suggested fat graphing for volume loss in my face that was making me look sad and tired.

The FAMI procedure saved me from a future of unhappiness and depression. I had a an accident which resulted in a huge loss of teeth. Over the years I lost volume in my face too. My face had become very indented around the cheeks and I had become very withdrawn and depressed due to my appearance... READ MORE

I had my first fat transfer done around 13 years ago. The surgeon placed fat in my cheeks and my lips. The fat in my lips didn't last very long and the fat in my cheeks was position in an odd location (high on the cheek bone) which made my mid face look more hollow. A few years later I went back...

I did liposuction to the thighs and knees thinking if I reduced the size of the thighs, my legs will not appear so skinny. Truth is a skinny leg is a skinny leg. I want to enjoy my new body. I want to... READ MORE

I waited a long time before deciding on a surgeon, because I wanted to be certain I had chosen an experienced professional who clearly understood what I hoped to achieve.

My experience was not good. My stomach is smaller on one side my butt is bigger on one side and my back is also bigger on one side. I think the doctor must can't see out one eye.
