Laser Liposuction and Facial Fat Grafting

Call for Availability Instructor: Tom, Walter, MD Fee: $4995

Facial Fat Grafting is one of the most rewarding and artistic procedures we can offer our patients. Dr. Fournier, one of the pioneers of facial fat grafting has been often quoted; “A millimeter of difference in the face can lead to a kilometer of change in the heart.” Examples of this truth will be shared. Visual examples of actual patients and their facial aging due to volume deflation will be presented with an emphasis on specific key anatomic areas. If you do not perform facial fat grafting, I hope to convince you to adopt this most gratifying procedure to your practice
