Results from Fat Transfer, 2nd Session - Houston, TX

After a long 3 year struggle of having most of the fat in my face dissipate, I had several procedures to correct the damage (and negative vector) left after my cheeks started drooping. One of the procedures I had done is fat transfer (two times). I'm extremely happy with the results, I feel like myself again.
