Is there a noticeable difference between Pearl Fat Grafting and fat grafting? What is the difference?
Pearl fat grafting uses large pieces of fat to augment an area of the face, most commonly the hollowed lower eyelids. I am quite familiar with micro fat grafting and perform a great deal of facial fat grafting. I transfer small amounts of fat harvested from other more plentiful areas of your body and inject hem into the face. The fat is transferred in small units injected with a very small needle. I am not familiar enough with the Pearl fat grafting procedure to replace micro fat grafting with this procedure but, from what I have seen, it is effective with significant facial hollowing, but, no more reliable or effective than micro fat grafting.
