Teri Hatcher

Teri Hatcher, a classic example of 3D Aging... I was interviewed by US Weekly Magazine yesterday on whether certain Hollywood actresses have had plastic surgery done. One of them was Teri Hatcher. So did she have work done? You'll have to check out an upcoming issue of US Weekly to find out. The question I'd like to address now is: What plastic surgery should she have done?
Teri is a great example of 3D aging. Her face has deflated with age, as can be seen in the before and after photographs above. She had a much softer look 10-15 years ago, with more volume in her cheeks and under her eyes. Traditional plastic surgery techniques focus on only two dimensions, by pulling and tightening. As you can see, Teri's face hasn't sagged with time, it's deflated. Because of this, traditional plastic surgery such as facelifts and eyelid lifts would not make her look younger, they would only make her look tight, pulled, and different.
One of my specialties is 3D Plastic Surgery. The best surgery to make Teri look younger is Facial Fat Grafting or Transfer. I remove her own fat from her tummy or thighs, purify it, and then inject it into the areas of her face which have lost volume with age. This would be the best way to make her look more like her younger self. The surgery takes about an hour and involves no visible scars, and very little discomfort. It would definitely be the best way to take this "Desperate Housewife" and transform her back to "Lois Lane."

It all sounds good in theory. However, how long do the effects of this procedure last? Wouldn't the displaced fat be reabsorbed or dissolved within a short time? And, how much does a procedure like this cost???
