This section of the forum is dedicated to discussions on various surgical techniques for facial rejuvenation, including fat transfer/fat grafting, browlift, blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery), facelift, etc. Also, this category includes questions on hand rejuvenation via fat grafting. (Of note, Dr. Lam does not perform body rejuvenation except for hand fat grafting)
NOOOOOOOOOO!!!! I have answered this question in great detail about 6 months ago. Do an archive search for it. However, here is the short answer. I NEVER put fat in the forehead for 2 reasons:
1. it is too hard to avoid a lumpy look.
2. over a few years time the forehead starts to have weight and can hang over the eyes like a neanderthal.
will this happen all the time? i don't know. i have never done this before. i spoke with a fat transfer surgeon who had been doing it for a few years and started to see these problems so I never incorporated that into my practice.
