Case Study: Facial Fat Grafting


Fat Grafting – Case 1

This young woman presented to me with torso fat excess and dramatic breast sag (with previous implants done by others).

I performed liposuction of the entire torso including back, hips, lateral buttock, flanks, and abdomen and ribs (along with breast lift and removal of implants). The result is a remarkable transformation. Note buttock shape and lifting.


Fat Grafting – Case 2

Even women with moderate fat can be candidates for liposuction. This is an excellent example of liposuction of abdomen and hips and fat grafting of buttock which together really refine her shape!!



Fat Grafting – Case 3

This patient presented years after her initial breast reconstruction done with another surgeon. She was unhappy with the poor camouflage of the mastectomy and the poor shaping of the reconstructed breast and the implant in the opposite breast. I removed and replaced both implants, reshaped both breasts, added a tissue graft (alloderm) to the right breast, did a lift and then finally 3D tattooing and fat grafting. A fine result.


Fat Grafting – Case 4

Artistic combination of liposuction (neck and jowls), fat grafting of cheeks and jawline and marionette region, lip and cheek filler, and rhinoplasty(done prior to before photo) can transform a face into an object of beauty. Here is a spectacular example!


Fat Grafting – Case 5

This woman presented with typical features of the aging face; eyelid hooding, wrinkled skin around the eyes, nasolabial fold hollow and folding, lip volume loss, jowling, and loose sagging neck.

Her result shows a natural, restored, volume enriched face and neck without excessive pulling. Eyelid
blepharoplasty, face lift, with SMAS lift, neck lift with platysmaplasty and fat grafting (from abdomen) to lips, pre-jowl fold, nasolabials and marionette lines in combination restore an attractive face.


Fat Grafting – Case 6

This case is a combination of liposuction of neck and fat grafting of the jawline.  Look carefully and see how this combo really changes her face for the better.  A great outcome!



Fat Grafting – Case 7

One of the best procedures for improving a youthful appearance is fat grafting of the hands.  Look how I am able to hide views and fill hollow and improve skin turgor.


Fat Grafting – Case 8

This case shows how fat grafting can improve the aging hand appearance.

Many women complain of the aging hand. I have a simple procedure to add small increments of fat between the metacarpal bones of the hand which restores a youthful appearance.


Fat Grafting – Case 9

This patient presented with facial volume disproportion. Soft tissue volume absence and a crooked large nose created an aged appearance. She is shown after volume restoration (fillers and fat transposition) to lips, nasolabial folds, and eyelids; upper and lower blepharoplasty; and rhinoplasty.

The combination of procedures helps create facial harmony and in this case facial beauty well beyond the scope of anyone treatment.


Fat Grafting – Case 10

It’s nearly impossible to quantify the positive impact combination body contouring procedures can have on a person as well as those around her.

Here a young woman after significant weight loss chose to undergo a combination breast lift with implants, body lift combining abdominoplasty, flankplasty and buttock lift, with liposuction (hips and back) and fat grafting to buttocks for shaping. An outstanding transformation and result.
