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 ›

Do NOT ever ever agree to this. I can't even think of an "Unless..." Dermal fillers are predictable, and that is what you do NOT get with fat transfer. I regret this so much.
