Class III before and afters are often very dramatic. Most of the effect is from the jaw surgery.

I think significant improvement of asymmetry is the wow factor here.

I think it looks good and works well for the premature midface decline in that article.

was offered micro fat grafting, think its the same thing? but my stupid head immediately pushed for a bony movement instead of asking more about it

In the 2nd photo, there is bright light washing out any contours or lines. Lighting is much worse in the first set of photos.

'Lipogens' is a TRADEMARK for a type of fat grafting that can be done without the sytem one of the authors (Tremolada) is marketing.

Of course, if you do something else aimed at improving what max-fax does not improve, the over all results will look better. But if you're looking in terms of what a maxfax surgery can do, it's best to look for examples in the absence of other procedures.
