Fillers for a dent
Yes. I have used fat transfer for this exact purpose with excellent results. You could also utilize a filler such as Bellafill which is permanent.
Fat grafting to arm
Fat grafting to the arm works very well assuming the location and nature of the contour deformity are optimal. In other words, I agree you need a consultation in person. That being said, I have grafted many patients who have "dents" in the arm from resolution of vascular lesion, and it has worked great. My patients are very happy. Good luck and et that consult!
Hello and thank you for your question. The
best advice you can receive is from an in-person consultation. Fat grafting can be used for this situation in the right patient. The most important aspect is to find a surgeon you are
comfortable with. I recommend that you seek consultation with a qualified
board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in person.
Best wishes and good luck.
