This section is dedicated to questions that don’t easily fit into any other category but that concern facial plastic surgery. For hair restoration, see Dr. Lam’s Hair Transplant Forum. http://www.drsamlamhairforum.com/
I may not have posted my last question to Dr. Lam in the correct place. I wanted to know if the fat that is removed during eyelid surgery can be used as a filler for "smile lines"? Wouldn't it be as effective and more permanent than any of the other synthetic fillers?
no, because fat removed from the eyelid is so so so so so small amount it will practically fill nothing.
