Question:  What type of surgeon should I consult with for micro-fat transplantation to my face?

Answer:

Dear reader,

There are a few important factors to consider when choosing a surgeon:

  • Board certification – It is always important to have surgery and/or procedures done by a physician who is board-certified in the specialty associated with that procedure.  For fat transplantation to the face, you would look for a surgeon who is board-certified in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.
  • Experience – Once you locate a board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, the next step is to find out how much experience the surgeon has with fat transfer procedures and particularly, micro-fat transplantation to the face.  Experience of greater than 20 cases would be essential.
  • Real Patient Photos – I would ask to see some pictures of patients in his or her practice who have had this procedure done by him or her.  Surgeons who are experienced in this area should have a collections of before and after photos to show their work.
