Fat Transfer - 10 Months out - New York, NY

My results are mixed, but keep in mind I am very, very picky. When I look around here I have to say that I faired very well, which makes me sad to say because I really feel terrible about others who now don't want to show their face. I had fat transfer done ~10 months ago. Age/sex is late 20-something year old male. I mainly wanted to restore the 'baby fat' of my mid face, as well as make... READ MORE

This just showed how anecdotal it is, between you and your friend.. that spray of water was not what made the difference. Proteins in skin don't decide to cross-link and damage due to lack of exercise or moisture. Your friend vs you... READ COMMENT

Yep, that is what doctors will say, it is amazing to me they -never- seem to have heard about any negative result like others have...that is, until a procedure becomes obsolete and replaced and generally-accepted as bad within the... READ COMMENT

Typical. Almost no doctors will take blame for these matters. They will say any of the usual responses.. "Oh well the clock keeps ticking, you most likely just aged 10 years... in 3 months.. yep.. must be." "Have you been having a lot... READ COMMENT
