So none of your medical problems would prevent you having fat grafting per se. They may influence the decision to put you to sleep but its possible to do grafting under local anesthetic or with sedation. That of course is an anesthetic decision, not a surgical one. Fat grafting works well in most people especially in the face as long as patients are not highly anticoagulated or allergic to any of the agents used. Long acting fillers may also be of benefit. It may be worth asking. Hope that helps.
