Which is best for me: Fat Injections or Injectable Fillers? Bethesda Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Oldham answers

Dr. Roger J. Oldham is a board certified cosmetic surgeon who cares for patients in a number of ways, including cosmetic procedures (like breast lift, tummy tuck, rhinoplasty), reconstructive procedures (earlobe repair, MOHS closure, and move removal), and skin enhancement treatments like microdermabrasion, chemical peel, Botox, fat grafting (fat injections) and fillers like Radiesse and Juvederm. Both fat injections and filler injections have benefits and your needs will help Dr. Oldham advise you on which will produce the best results!

Injectable fillers are increasingly popular these days.  Ever since the advent of Botox, additional products have emerged to target specific areas of the face that present fine lines.  Juvederm and Radiesse are especially effective when targeting the area between the brows, around the nose, and beside the mouth.  They fill creases with a special substance to smooth the surface of the skin and reduce the depth of wrinkles.  Fat grafting (fat injections), on the other hand, achieves similar ends through different means.  Because your body’s natural substance is used (your own fat), there is no chance of allergic reaction, and, if successful,  the results are permanent.  Additionally, while fillers are really only used for wrinkle treatment, fat grafting can also be used to plump the cheeks to appear more youthful.  See the difference in uses/results in these pictures of patients before and after Juvederm/Radiesse and before and after fat injections.
