Fat Transfer Before and After


This patient in her 40s had fallen on her left cheek years earlier.  Unfortunately, this led to fat atrophy of the area just below her cheek bone.  This is best seen on the left lateral view picture at the top.  There is a noticeable divot in her left cheek starting just below the level of her nose in the before photos.  It is still visible in the frontal and oblique views.  She underwent the transfer of 5 cc of structural fat grafting to this area.  In the after photos you can see how she now has a very smooth contour to her cheek.
