- Depressed scars of the face & body
- Aging skin with loss of supportive tissue, such as the dorsal hand, hollow cheeks & eyes, upper lip and nasolabial folds.
- Facial Reshaping for the gaunt/thin face
- Cheek augmentation
- Buttock augmentation, such as the Brazilian Butt Lift
- Chin augmentation
- Hemifacial atrophy
- Flattened upper lip
- Fat resorption is the most common problem encountered.
- Fat embolism, very rare.
- Blindness, extremely rare.
- Iatrogenic injuries, such as vessels & nerves. Thus, it is important to select a plastic surgeon to perform this procedure.
- Asymmetry may occur due to multiple factors, such as the variable nature of the viability of the fat grafted/transferred and pre-existing asymmetry of the face.
