Rejection of fat
Is there a chance that my face can reject transferred fat?
There are a couple of medical conditions where the fat distribution in the face never develops. These are called lipodystrophy. They are rare but not unheard of and they may be the cause of your lack of facial fat. Assuming this is not the case then fat can be very effectively used to volumise and make more youthful almost any face. If you go and see a local plastic surgeon they may be able to give you some insight into what can be done. Some may even have 3D software to help you see what might be possible on your own face. Hope that helps. Adam Goodwin
