Overfilled with fat – is there anything to correct????

Dr.Irwin. 8 years ago i had my own body fat put in my cheeks. My cheeks seem to be still over filled. Is there anything to correct this? I enjoy reading your advice. Thankbyou

At this point in time, I’m sad to say there isn’t.   Liposuction isn’t generally recommend for this because it’s too hard to get it even and the current fat busting technologies aren’t recommended for the face.   But write again in a year or so………. there may be some options that are currently in the FDA pipeline……….only with studies and experience will we know for sure.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
