GSR, globe-to-skeletal rim relations; NLF, nasolabial fold; WSRS, wrinkle severity rating scale as grade severity; +, positive; -, negative; R, rectangle shape; O, oval shape; UO, unbalanced oval shape; BO, balanced oval shape.

a)Grade 1: no visible NLF; continuous skin line, Grade 2: shallow but visible NLF; slight indentation, Grade 3: moderately deep NLF; visible and normal appearance, Grade 4: very long and deep NLF; prominent facial feature; < 2 mm, visible fold if stretched, Grade 5: extremely deep and long NLF; 2–4 mm, V-shaped fold if stretched.

b)Grade of satisfaction: 5, very much improved; 4, much improved; 3, slightly improved; 2, no change; 1, worsened.

c)Three cases wherein the WSRS grade severity of nasolabial folds was aggravated after fat grafting.
