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 can't tell you enough wonderful things about my fat trxs. I was able to tell immediately that it worked. Healing was not bad for me. I was virtually in no pain where the fat trans. was on my eyes. There were no lumps or bumps, no (crawly bug feelings) and as of today it's all still... READ MORE

I am 51 years old and I had my face fat transfer done about 7 months ago. I'm very happy with my results. I heard about it from some tv shows and started doing my research. I ended up choosing the FAMI technique. The doctor I went to also activates the stem cells in my harvested fat with PRP... READ MORE

This has been really hard. I got really bruised and also it hurt a lot. I felt like there were little bugs in my face that I could not scratch out. I am really swollen and look like a cat. Everywhere i go people stare at me and make snide remarks behind my back. Hopefully, this will be worth it... READ MORE

I had fat transfer under eyes in my early 20ties to plump up the hollows. It was way overdone and I have been getting cortisone shots to dissolve it and it is fine for maybe a month and then it starts growing back. Within a few months, it is all back and looks very abnormal - see pictures. I... READ MORE

I used to be so happy with myself , except for some wrinkling on my lower eyelids that I thought would be fixed by the fat transfer procedure. I went to a doctor that had great before and afters, but unfortunately, he did not tell me that i had any other options besides the fat transfer. Had i... READ MORE

Had under eyes hollows filled with fat transfer but as you can see on the photo i have a lump under my right eye. I told him to remove it and he tried with some sort of liposuction needle but said that nothing came out and tat it isnt fat tissue but some swelling only and that it will pass in 15... READ MORE

At age 46 I didn't like the sagging crepe like skin that was appearing on my cheeks so I had a fat transfer along with a facelift and brow lift in November 2009. I really loved the results. I didn't look pulled or altered just younger and refreshed. I have had many compliments. A... READ MORE

Friends teased that if I had more fat in my face, I wouldn't have so many wrinkles. Fat transfer made a big difference for me. My hands and face were injected with fat taken from ab and hips. Pros were it was a minor procedure, with no pain, no more nervous than if you were having a... READ MORE

I had it done in two stages. Stage one in 2009 and stage two in 2010. It replaced volume loss in my face due to age. These pictures are 4 weeks post-op from stage 2 fat transfer. I will post more soon. READ MORE

I had a fat grafting around my eyes over 5 months ago. The effect has been poor. One eye has triple creases while the crease on the other one is gone because of the puffiness caused by the drapping fat. The doctor told me fat transfer is not permanent and I would need to go back for a refill in... READ MORE

I had chin implant in December, 2008. After healing, it left my right & left sides of my chin very wrinkled. The doctors said I needed a fat transfer to fill it in. I trusted their judgment. On the 7th of July, 2009 I had a fat transfer to cover the wrinkled tissue (they did not know... READ MORE

After having genioplasty 11yrs ago by another surgeon (now retired) I was left with an asymmetric jawline which was curved on one side. I was also losing fat mass on one side of my face (under cheekbone). During my consult, Dr. Perron was confident he could correct this with a fat transfer. I... READ MORE

Go elsewhere! I would not recommend this place! I went and had consultations at several different offices but BPS was the cheapest so I went with it- you get what you pay for! First of all when I called to request a consultation no doctor or nurse was available in the foreseeable future, the... READ MORE

I am considering getting a filler/Fatgrafting under the eye area... I want to share my journey because there is no one that has talked about this new Korean trend called "Aegyo Sal" I have not gotten my procedure yet, but have only talked over email with Dr. Young himself. I was actually... READ MORE

Hi RealSelfies! Like most of the community, I've been going to this site for the past year or so about plastic surgery. Long story short I honestly didn't want to share my story since I'm SUPER DUPER private. But you guys have been soooo encouraging and true champions for one another I thought... READ MORE

10 yrs ago, Dr Bruno did my breast augmentation. He did an amazing job. They look and feel very natural and great. 10 yrs later, after endless attempts and dieting to lose my belly fat but gain weight in my butt, I decided to get fat transfer. I always gained weight in my abs and never in my... READ MORE
