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 ›

After losing 78 lbs or so my face started losing its volume as well which cause my eyes to look slightly sunken, cheeks to hollow out, and skin to lose its firmness and elasticity.

I have spent a lot of time on realself, which has proved to be an invaluable tool for me.

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. And the follow-up visits--where the doc doesn't "see" what you see...it's insulting and you have little recourse. ... READ MORE
