  title={Facial Re-Contouring Using Autologous Fat Transfer},
  author={Amgad Hendy},
Propose: This article introduces the concept of soft tissue augmentation of the face. With aging, diminished volume of the soft tissue of face leads to an excess skin envelope and the illusion of a more prominent nasolabial fold.
