Dr. K, located in Houston, TX, uses high volume transfer fat to face instead of face lifting in many of his patients in their 40’s and 50’s. Some patients in their early 60’s without excess skin in their neck and minimal jowls are also excellent candidates. Banding in the neck no longer requires a face lift to repair. Botulinum toxin can get rid of most platysmal banding and also need for a brow lift. Fat graft restores the volume lost in the upper 2/3 of the face and elevates wrinkles and the nasolabial folds. Dr. K also uses the fat graft to accentuate the eyebrows, lips, and chin. Dr. K also resurfaces the forehead that tends to become thinner with aging and fills the temples. Fat grafting also transfers stem cells to the aging skin and facial muscles. Thereby, the transferred fat not only restores the volume to aging face, but also leads to more youthful appearing skin and potentially more defined facial musculature with more pronounced animation.
