Q: Which is better: Fillers or Fat Transfers for Cheek Wrinkle Line? I have a wrinkle line that starts from the inside corner of my eye that goes down and across the cheekbone area. A dermatologist recommended using fillers after doing incision in that area. The results were great from the reviews and pictures I've seen. Second consult was with a plastic surgeon who recommended getting fat transfer there. Which would be best for the wrinkle line across the cheekbone?
A: Fat vs Fillers. This is a question I hear often in my practice. As a general rule of thumb, I prefer to use injectable fillers because they are predictable in terms of duration and placement. In addition, there is no need to harvest your own fat and you can fill the area gradually, over time, for a softer, more natural look.
Please call our office at 321.727.3223 to schedule your appointment and see if you are a good candidate for the injectable fillers.
