Natural options for filler

Question: I really do not want to put artificial products into my face. Can I use my own fat?

Answer: The answer is yes!  There are pros and cons to using fat.  Fat is your own body’s tissue and we can often get some from several places.  The down side to it includes it involves more an office-based procedure, one may experience a bit more swelling than with most fillers, and there is some unpredictability to fat.  I usually tell my patients that about 50-60% of the fat we put in will stay for 3-5 years (sometimes more).  Fat often requires more than a single injection usually spaced out by about 6 months.
