I’m a 50 year old woman, and I’ve been looking into different facial fillers.

Question:

I’m a 50 year old woman, and I’ve been looking into different facial fillers. I recently read about fat transfer procedures, which sound intriguing. I have a little extra baggage I’d like to lose in the love handles anyway. Since the fat would be from my own body, would the results of a fat transfer last longer than from an artificial filler?

Answer:

Fat transfer procedures can offer a long lasting and natural enhancement to the face. In my experience, fat injection lasts longer than an artificial filler, especially in the mid and upper thirds of the face. Also, I tell my patients that harvesting the fat does not contour or significantly reduce the donor site area because of the small volume that is required to remove.
