I had the fat injected into the left side of my face in order to correct my hemi facial microsomia.

In my life I have undergone more than 25 surgeries ranging in intensity to reconstruct the left side of my face including creating a new ear on my left side and growing my jaw horizontally and vertically. This was the final procedure and helped to even everything out that couldn’t be done structurally.

What I expected

My expectations were relatively high as I had been through so many procedures in my life that focused on the major adjustments to my face and this was focused on fine tuning and perfecting.

My fears

I was worried I wouldn’t be able to gain enough fat for the procedure as I was practicing yoga everyday and eating a very strict diet which kept me with virtually no body fat.

The solutions

However, I managed to eat tons of ice cream and not exercise for the months prior to the procedure and gained some fat successfully!

Why I Chose Fat Transfer

I really was worried about it turning out with an incorrect shape of my face and not being able to revert it back to the way it was before the procedure. I chose Puregraft because of my doctor's recommendation. He explained the procedure to me and it sounded perfect.

My Results

I am thrilled with the results! My face is as symmetrical as I ever could have hoped for and I am so happy to have had this procedure to finalize that time in my life. With it behind me now I am so grateful to this technology for existing and allowing my doctor to perfect something that was years in the making.
