This patient had the entire area around the mouth treated, as well as the lips. The overall change is quite profound, taking away the appearance of harshness and intensity, but leaving a very natural look.
A more dramatic change in volume, but keeping a natural shape and avoiding lumpiness and firmness which is often a problem with injectable fillers.
A fairly full look after lip enhancement. Notice the increased smoothness of the lip texture as the fine lines become plumper.
Fat injection is the best method of achieving a natural, soft lip enhancement. The amount of volume correction can be more or less depending upon the wishes of the patient and the pre-existing volume of the lips.
Improving the aging appearance of the hand is as important as improving aging facial features. Fat injection can hide prominent veins and tendons and give a very youthful appearance to the back of the hand—an area that simply can't be hidden from view.
Adding volume to the cheek always gives a younger, more vibrant look to the face.
When the cheeks and facial lines are treated, the contour changes give a softer, younger look. Even the skin surface regenerates, making it look fresher and smoother. This is a result that tightening procedures cannot provide.
The hollow area of the inner aspect of the lower eyelid is a common problem causing a tired, sad look. Smoothing the transition between the cheek and lower eyelid not only improves contour, but lightens the dark skin tone of the lower eyelid.
The post-op photo was taken one year after fat injection to upper and lower lips. The area around the mouth was treated as well. Notice the improvement in the lateral smile line as shown by the arrow.
