enhancing youthful appearance.

Inject filler into where love band is desired to be created.
What is the benefit - Procedure can smooth wrinkles and create more defined eyes with youthful appearance.

■ Autologous Fat Graft

Love Band using Autologous Fat Grafting - Grafting excess fat from own thighs, hips, and abdomen is another
method to create love band, and also known for body contouring effect since the procedure grafts unnecessary

enhance lasting period and results of the procedure.

procedure that it might cause lumps or over-absorption of fat due to misinjection, the procedure must be performed
by a specialist.

with IV sedation.

hips, and abdomen using
a small cannula.
