This woman in her late-60s comes to Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie for autologous fat grafting to fill up her sunken face.  Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie actually recommends a combination of both autologous fat grafting and surgical face lift, however she is not keen for a more invasive procedure like face lift. Dr Arthur Tjandra of Elixir de Vie does not favor suture or thread lift although it is a rather non-invasive procedure, because thread lift does not address the issue of aging face at the deeper level, which is SMAS, not just the skin. Thread lift hopes to achieve what proper surgical face lift can achieve, by only yanking up the skin. Unfortunately, it does not work that way!
