Fat is great:
A youthful face is typically a fuller face, and fat injections are a great way to restore that look. However, fat does not necessarily replace surgical repositioning of tissue through lower eyelid surgery or facelift surgery.

Don't be a slave to such fears. ...Read more

All connected: If you get out an anatomy picture of your head you will see that your throat, nasal passages, and eye sockets are all connected.

It will get better on its own. ...Read more
