Facial fat transfer
« on: December 14, 2015, 01:53:01 pm »
Does it work as well on folks on HIV therapy?
I'm noticing natural hollowing of my face.  I just don't like it.  Don't want to get fillers.  I don't want anything unnatural stuck under my skin flowing around.   I was thinking of facial fat transfer.  I would like about a teaspoon in both middle cheek areas and temples, and I think I would be fine.  :-)
Has anyone tried it?

I have to say I have not tried it...but I noticed no one has responded to you yet.

What I have found worked is that I grew a full facial beard. You would never know I have lost facial fat.

And yes, many men have trouble growing a beard.  I did too.  I committed to a "Yeard:" not shaving for a year...and I was amazed at what *finally* grew there!

I wish I could grow a beard.  But, alas, I am a woman.

it's s real issue for people that take PI's and especially if they took or take DDI and D4T...fat transfers don't last long, body reabsorbs the fat and it's expensive
