Adding volume to the aging face is a notion that has come into vogue as of late but is, however, not a new idea. With the advent of miro-liposuction techniques, there is renewed interest in the use of aspirated fat. Commercial fillers have a valuable place in the cosmetic surgeon's armamentarium and offer immediate volume correction with a more modest financial commitment. Nevertheless, the standardization of fat grafting techniques marks an exciting shift in facial aesthetics with the ability to correct all aspects of the aging face with safe, natural, and lasting results.
