I’ve read that my own body fat can be harvested to fill facial wrinkles and augment lips. Are the results permanent?

Answer:

I perform fat injection to fill wrinkles of the face.  I usually harvest it from the abdomen.  In my experience, fat injected in the upper portions of the face generally works a little better than fat injected around the mouth and lips, although it can in many cases provide years of results.  Unfortunately, fat can be unpredictable, and touch up injections may be required.
