Can a fat transfer make my face look younger? I have bags under my eyes and sunken cheekbones, not to mention the wrinkles around my eyes, nose, and mouth. Can I get a fat transfer to fill in some areas and smooth out my face without getting a facelift?

Can a fat transfer make my face look younger? I have bags under my eyes and sunken cheekbones, not to mention the wrinkles around my eyes, nose, and mouth. Can I get a fat transfer to fill in some areas and smooth out my face without getting a facelift?

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.

Thick nasal mucus: Thick nasal mucus can be related to sinusitis, but not necessarily. If you have chronic allergies or recurrent infections you should consult a doctor who can identify if there is an opportunity to improve nasal inflammation with sprays or treat infection with antibiotics. You may benefit from good nasal hygiene as well which involves using salt water rinses to clear mucus and allergens. ...Read more

Have a runny nose and when I blow its thick mucous with coughing up a lot of thick yellow mucous for a week now. Should I get checked?

Yes if no better: Most uncomplicated viral colds run their course in 7- 10 days. If thick yellow nasal mucus is not improving after about 10-14 days, the possibility that a sinus infection has occurred is significantly higher. Nasal saline rinse and decongestants may relieve symptoms, but if not improving over next several days, antibiotics would be reasonable. ...Read more

I have had an eating disorder for 28 years. I am 39. I have deep lines around my nose and mouth weight gain isn't helping. I can't afford fillers.

More info: You didn't say how tall you are and how much you weigh. Are you really a normal weight? If not, the lines are a sign of that. The lines could be from excessive sun exposure. If so, that's not reversible but a dermatologist might help. But as a psychiatrist I have to go back to the basic issue: are you still restricting your diet and maintaining a subnormal weight to fight anxiety? ...Read more
