Q: How long does fat last if used to restore the face?
What our experts say:
We recently did a study, the first of its kind, of patients who had fat transferred to the lower eyelid area. It showed that it lasted three to five years in most patients and some went beyond that. With filler like Restylane, we get maybe nine months to a year. So it lasts three to five times as long.
