As already stated.... Your own Fat is the best thing to use to replace missing fat. It is the safest option and the most natural feeling and looking option. (more)

I agree with Dr Samir, Enriched Fat grafts are the better alternative than Aquamid. (more)

Fat transfer remains the best alternative to filling depression areas after liposuction. You may need to do it more than once. (more)
