Hi Dr. Lam,
I think you have beautiful results and I am strongly considering having fat grafting to my face. I have three questions and I was hoping you could take a look at them... thanks!
1) I have heard that facial fat grafts last longer if they are injected into the muscle or in "layers" (I am not sure what that means). Is this something that you believe is true?
2) Do you find that you have better luck with fat harvested from some areas vs. others? I read that some doctors like to use fat from inner thighs or lower abdomen because it lasts longer, as the fat composition in these different areas is different. I am wondering what your opinion is about this.
3) I have pale, sensitive skin... I am wondering if patients ever have scarring at the injection sites.
I think facial fat grafting could really help me. I had an illness a few years ago in which I got very skinny and lost a lot of facial fat. The fat came back in the rest of my body but my face still looks sort of gaunt in my cheeks, undereyes, and temples. I am 28 years old.
Thanks a lot!
