Fig. 4. A 21-year-old female who underwent sequential autologous fat injection to improve infraorbital and cheek hollowness. Upper blepharoplasty was done simultaneously (case 9; Table 1). The amount of injected fat for the face, barring the forehead region, was approximately 40.0 ml. The facial contour was dramatically changed from a rectangle shape to a balanced oval shape due to anterior midface protrusion and jowl fat reduction. An improved Ogee S-curve with fullness due to anterior projection is observed. Interestingly, the nasolabial folds (NLFs) appear more aggravated due to a significant increase in midfacial volume, despite NLF fat reduction. (A-C) Preoperative photos; (D-F) postoperative photos, 4 months after fat grafting. Yellow arrows indicate preoperative status; white arrows, postoperative volume increase; blue arrows, change of Ogee curve; and black arrows, postoperative volume decrease.
