Can fat transfer be done on the face? Can fat transfer be used to fill deep wrinkles and other sagging areas on the face?

.

Yes absolutely!l: In pre-facelift aged patients (not yet ready for a facelift) it is a great option. It can be even better with judicious use of neck and facial liposuction.

Why do nasolabial folds start, in the first place? Have seen them in people in their thirties. Also, can facial exercises get rid of them?

Why do nasolabial folds start, in the first place? Have seen them in people in their thirties. Also, can facial exercises get rid of them?

Everyone has them: Everyone has nasolabial folds- they are a part of the face. However as skin ages they may become more visible. There aren't facial exercise to change them. However you are more prone to wrinkles if you are out in the sun without sun protection- like a hat/sunscreen or are a cigarette/cigar smoker. A plastic surgeon or dermatologist can make specific recommendations abt skin care, discuss options. ...Read more

Is the lifestyle lift limited to certain areas on the face? I have several areas of my face that i would like to get fixed, including droopy eyelids, sagging cheeks, and wrinkles around my mouth. Will lifestyle lift be able to treat all of these problem a

The : The lifestyle lift is a revival of a very old facelift procedure--unfortunately. I know of not a single well trained facial plastic surgeon who does this procedure. It is typically considered to be a skin only lift which is a short lived, antiquated intervention for the aging face. We have evolved as a specialty way beyond this type of facelift. More current techniques result in a natrual, lasting result. You can think of this as a minilift-- which only addresses the lower part of the face and not the neck. The droopy eyelids, sagging cheeks and wrinkles would not be helped. Those parts would be handled individually with a blepharoplasty, midface lift, and skin resurfacing. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Would breaking the nerve across the chest lead to losing muscle mass in the upper arms? Would the same be true for the nerves and muscles down front?

Would breaking the nerve across the chest lead to losing muscle mass in the upper arms? Would the same be true for the nerves and muscles down front?

Unlikely.: The nerves that supply the arms run through the brachial plexus, a network of nerves that run from the neck spinal cord through the axilla (near pit of the arm). If these were severed, loss of function and atrophy of the arm muscles would occur. No nerves that supply the arm run on the front of the chest. This area only has nerves to the skin, & nerve damage would result in numbness in the skin. ...Read more

Where is filler injected to help lift the eyebrow? I had the doctor inject in 3 spots along above the brow towards the end near temple

Botox, not fillers: Filler will not lift your eyebrows. If you inject Botox intradermally near and below the temporal side of your brows, it paralyzed the part of the orbicularis muscle that pulls the lateral brown down, hence it appears to lift up a bit. Best wishes ...Read more
