As I have gotten older my cheeks seem to be getting flatter. Is fat transfer a good solution for adding volume to the cheeks?
Yes, fat transfer is very good. In some people, however, the fat transfer is temporary and lasts in the area of three to six months. There are other individuals, though, who get fat transfer and get a much longer treatment response. Fat, if it is injected appropriately, will give nice filling out to the cheek areas. There are a number of other procedures, both in terms of fillers or implants, that may be a better solution for problems with volume in the cheeks which have to be determined by an actual visit. However, fat injections to the cheeks can be a very good procedure.
