I have a very skinny gaunt face. How do I gain facial fat?
Thank you for sharing your question. Based on the photo you have provided you appear to be an excellent candidate for dermal fillers and, potentially, fat grafting. I recommend trying a dermal filler first such as Restylane Lyft, Juvederm Voluma or even Radiesse to add volume to your midface. If you are happy with the results, you may want to consider the more permanent option of fat grafting. Fat grafting is a procedure that involves harvesting fat from a donor site such as the abdomen or inner thighs, purifying the fat cells, and then injecting the fat into the desired location on the face. Approximately 50% of the fat injected remains permanently. However, I strongly recommend starting with dermal fillers and considering fat transfer at a later date. Best of luck.
