Very Pleased - Minneapolis, MN

Like many athletic women in their early 50s, I was losing volume in my face-and more on one side than the other! So much so that I thought I might need a cheek implant-I had a few rounds of fillers (Radiesse, Juvederm) over the last few years. I liked the results but they don't last, which, at $700 per syringe, adds up! So I made an appointment with a plastic surgeon who recommended fat... READ MORE

This Stuff Really Works! - Minneapolis, MN

I got this at a local med spa after having another service. I was a little skeptical at first, but was I ever wrong! It really works-my lashes came in fuller and quite a bit longer. I didn't have any of the side effects mentioned in the enclosure. I would - actually have -recommend this to friends and family. READ MORE

Radiesse-great for Subtle Changes - Minneapolis, MN

I have been using this for the past 3 years to augment cheeks and minimize under eye bags with very good results. The affects are instant and last about a year. I didn't bruise (and I bruise pretty easily), and found discomfort during the procedure to be minimal; my doctor uses a topical anesthetic which helps a lot! I think you really could do this over your lunch hour, provided you don't... READ MORE

Awful Bruises-and I Still Have the Capillaries! - Minneapolis, MN

I went to two different Drs and it didn't work for me. The first time it did get rid of about 50 % of the broken capillaries; I went to another Dr. the second time hoping for a better result. Both Drs. are very highly rated-not some kind of fly-by-night types! I wish I had known (the first time, at least) how bruised I would be! Neither Dr. explained how awful the bruises are and that they... READ MORE

No, I don't have slack there; I was mostly trying to correct asymmetry-I have a scar on my right cheek, and I think it was aging faster than the other side! A good surgeon should be able to tell you if you'll get the kind of correction... READ COMMENT

I had this done a couple of years ago. My swelling took about 3 weeks to resolve. You're looking great!! PS I'm still happy with my results-very subtle and I have "kept" about 75-80% of the fat injected. READ COMMENT

I'm planning on having this done in June. I'm in just about the exact same boat as you, same age, and one cheek is more saggy that the other. Seriously, your before photo is almost like looking into a mirror! I only hope my results are... READ COMMENT

Why does this review have the thumbs down icon? It sounds like you're very happy and so it should be thumbs up- READ COMMENT

I asked about cheek implants and he said he has removed hundreds, and has never applied any! He said they tend to shift and look fake, especially as your skin thins (with age). He has been doing fat grafting for over ten years and... READ COMMENT
