about fat transfers or any bigger area implants

i read before best to wait 6-12mths for laser or light treatment
i cant rmbr the logic behind sorri
bt meantime can use peel so no worries
do note that different dr have diff take on tis

i do know that typically lasers tat tightens also cos volume shrinkage and water loss so as to achived less puffy face hmmm

I did lower bleph (eye bags) last year and now there is slight hollowness on lower lids. I've been considering fat injection to fill up my lower eyelid hollowness. Was this the same reason for you? I was concern about lumpiness as well.
I wonder which is worse, the hollowness or lumpiness, what say you?

Thanks for sharing any info!

I did it for hollowness which also worsened the dark undereyes. The thing is I got very poor results from it and some get excellent results from it. As it is now, I prefer the hollowness to the lumpiness :(

Hi Candall,

Not so nice to say what happen between him & his partners split. But if you're close to him, you can ask him what happen and maybe he will tell you the story.

Did you went for the gathering in May at UE Sq StarBuck which he organized?

Hi mbk

It's really tough making a decision, I've been thinking about this for a few months now. It seems hard to predict the results until we do it and it varies from person to person. If for eg. by statistics 80-90% get good satisfactory results, if us being in the 10-20%, that's such a lousy feeling!

Was your lower eyelid lumpiness immediate after the fat injection, next few days? Or the lumps developed gradually in the next few weeks or something?

Are the lumps big like red beans or rice grain size? Do people around you notice it? Can it be covered by makeup?

My Dr told me about harvesting the fat from my abdomen, process and inject it into my lower lids. Was this the same thing your Dr did?

Did your Dr say if anything else can be done to correct the lumps? How permenant might the lumps be, will it gradually smoothen out? I read you had it done 7 months ago, has it improved?

Please excuse me for being so long winded and asking so many questions, I'd really appreciate any details you can share. Thanks.

Hey Astrogirl, I agree with what you said about the unpredictability of results in some individuals. I guess I am in the unfortunate 10% here. This was what I was MOST afraid of and the doctor reassured me that it WILL NOT HAPPEN because of the technique he uses.

The lumpiness started about 10 days post fat injections. At the one week mark it looked GREAT especially with the minor swelling. It looked AWFUL from 10 days to 6 weeks! EVeryone was starring at me and commenting on my eyes asking me what happened to them. Initially they were hard long lines which later broke up to round lumps. I was asked to massage them all the time. After frantic massaging every other minute and 7 months later they stand out less. However, the bathroom mirror is a nightmare- the lumps are quite visible. In some lighting it looks okay but in most natural and white light it shows. I regret my outcome but what to do.

Yeah, they took fat from my abdomen. The doctor said I might have to do another surgery to remove the lumps. I went to 6 different doctors and none of them wanted to touch me. They told me that having them removed would leave bigger incision scars and possibility of asymmetry etc.

I ventured into this after 2 years of research and consults with several different doctors. I spent a huge amount on this.

I think with time it has improved very gradually. I have a feeling that I have scars from the injected site aside from the fat which makes it so obvious.

Anyway, I have friends who underwent this very same surgery and their outcomes turned out great.

Good luck with your decision.

i tried the cooltouch and it really visibly lift and brighten my skin!
wow i happy until everyday oso go out to show off haha



Hi girl, you mentioned that this doctor is good in laser? Can he treat dark eye rings condition? I've been going for lasers(IPL, vein laser,fillers) with Dr.MH, fifth treatment and I don't really see any improvement. Probably my condition is hopeless?!?! :???: I'm thinking of going for a consultation with another doctor... do you recommend him?

Anyway, does cooltouch give you a brighter fairer skin?? Is it permanent or do we need a couple of treatments? How much is it? I figured my complexion need to be done something!! My complexion is dull and I'm sick of having to wear make up whereever I go... :(

Thanks girl!!!!

hi mynose!

its been years already since i tot of doing my nose
haha bt i dont know why i had it done only last week
i cant do ops implant cos i juz cant find the time
the cost of temp implant and the real ops make making decisions harder right?
have u seen any dr yet about pros n cons?

he told me mine can last 2-3 yrs leh..it is Matridex
this is used by many famous doctors also
he also uses Aquamid ,last 10 years
and he also said another one from the same Aquamid maker about 5 years

after the injection, the 3 clinic assistant n my sister said i look fresher and face slimmer,my sister v jealous cos she said now my nose is higher than hers...i really love instant happiness ahaha

but iread tat if u like define sharp nose than filler might nt be ur answer..
although Aquamid claim it can give a define look due to the material
tats why u must also do some research which u like lor
