Do fat injections into the lips count?
No..
I've had experience with that, and most of the cosmetic procedure out there..
:biggrin:

I could never tell if it lasted in my lips, if it stayed it hasn't made a big difference and its been 8 yrs. I have fullish lips already, but wanted a 'boost'..
did it stay on you?


The facial fat grafting to the brows, eyelids and hollows of my face is new to me..


I'm hearing 50/50 on the results..

Ill soon find out for myself.

I had it done Sept. 2008 and I can still feel a little of it in there but most of the fullness is gone. I think I will do it again. I know that it dissolves over time and most of my friends get it done every 6 months. I think after 1 year, 80% of the fat dissolves or something like that.

I'll ask my PS about fat grafting to the brows, etc., because that is...alluring!

I'm just curious because I have a hard time picturing it: what will fat grafting to the brows (and eyelids) do for your face??

That's what I've been hearing..
but Im getting lipo in my waist and I don't want it to go to waste
:biggrin:
My surgeon pointed out a few areas on my face..
I guess the fat lifts brows (?)
He pointed out the eye area, and nasal folds..
I had to talk him into doing my lips
:kiss:

As we age, the eye area hollow out and look sunken..
here are some before and after..(not my surgeon), the results are nice..

The consensus is that it doesn't last, or a very small percentage takes hold..
I guess Ill enjoy it while I can..

ive been thinking of getting it done for the hollows underneath my eyes and a little on top of my cheekbones to see if they become more prominent...i had rhinoplasty and it made my sunken eye hollows stand out more:Push:

This is the area I'm getting done..
upper cheeks/underneath my eyes..
It seems to be a popular area..
but again, I don't think it last..

Shame it doesn't last for years, but at least... it looks great :P

I've had fat graphing done twice. Once in april and again in september. The first round kept about one third and the second round, a lot more fat stayed. I am soooo pleased with the results. I took 10 yrs off my face. I had lost a lot of volume at 38 yrs old. The best part is the free lipo from the donor site. I highly recommend. Just remember you will probably need more than one treatment. Good luck

btw ... i amm interested in getting this procedure done as well.. and some clinics don't offer free touchup after 3 months, but some clinic do.. i think it's worth it to pick the clinic that offers the free touchup right???
because you're getting your money's worth...
just a tip ;)
