One of the most common complaints from women seeking liposuction or a tummy tuck is the storage of excess fat in the abdomen. In some cases even through diet and exercise there may still be some unwanted fat pockets. Dr. Nichter provides an explanation as to why fat stores in the abdomen and how a tummy tuck or liposuction can offer a solution to this common problem.
Dr. Nichter explains how fat transfer to the face is performed. Fat transfer is a great option for those seeking a more permanent option for restoring lost volume to their face. While facial fillers are also an option, they are not long lasting like fat transfer, and they can be quite expensive if someone needs a lot of volume replacement.
Facial fillers such as Juvederm and Voluma are very popular options for improving lost volume and fine lines and wrinkles, however in some very rare cases a patient may not be pleased with the result from their treatment. Some fillers are reversible should a patient request to have the product removed. In the above video, Dr. Nichter explains this in further detail.
