How to know if you are a good candidate for fat transfer

The best and only way to know is to get a consultation . On line consultations are an easy way to reach doctor , send some pictures and get their orientation . Personal consultation will always be required before final surgical plan. If you are in good health, and have unwanted fat in some areas, you can be considered a good candidate to have that fat transferred to desired areas of your body. Best wishes

I would like to know exactly how would you know if you're a candidate for a fat transfer procedure?

Any healthy female no matter how thin is a candidate for fat transfer to the face. However very thin body composition may make fat transfer to body areas unproductive. Men may be too thin for any form of transfer.
