As people age, fat will decrease in certain areas of the body. One area is just above the ears, next to the forehead. With men, this area tends to be more depressed and as a result, gives off a more elongated, harsh and masculine form. This occurs with ageing women as well, but it is more apparent with males.
The result, when filled in, is a more oval shaped face. Dr. Bensimon could approach this procedure using injectables or harvesting fat from the abdomen or thighs. Dr. Bensimon suggests using injectables as the body’s fat might not have the “staying power” and could decrease with time. This occurrence is extremely difficult to predict. Approached properly, this is a wonderfully feminizing procedure that adds a great deal to a profile and frontal view.
