Hi Dr. Lam,
A plastic surgeon with a similiar Q and A forum on the Internet has consistently renounced fat grafting/injections on his website. I asked him the following question:
Hi Dr this site appears to be full of horror stories around fat injections to the lower eyelids. Do they really have such a high failure rate or do we only hear about the poor outcomes on this site? Are there ever any successes with the procedure?
his answer is as follows:
Answer: I think the results are, at best, short lived and I feel that the probelms that can arise compared to the success stories make it not a viable option, certainly when off the shelf fillers are easier and have less risk and last about as long.
Can you explain why you (im assuming) disagree with him, and what reasons could put plastic surgeons off, that do not seem to deter you
