Facial Rejuvenation via Fat Transfer

Facial Rejuvination via Fat Transfers can naturally enhance cheeks, chin, lips, face, and can fill furrows, wrinkles, and depressions. The technique involves removing fat from one part of the body, like the abdomen, and injecting it in the same individual in another part of the body. Using one’s own body fat is all organic, reduces the risk of an allergic reaction yields better results, is safer and lasts longer than standard injectable products. The donor area is anesthetized using a local anesthesia and the fat is harvested using small syringes. It is then prepared and immediately injected into the treatment area. Excess fat can be frozen for future fat transfer procedures.

This method may be performed under local anesthesia, only takes 90-120 minutes, typical bruising up to 48-72 hours, and the results may last up to 5 years.

FAT TRANSFER FOR CHEEKS, LIPS, CHIN, FACE, HANDS AND BUTTOCKS

Affected Areas: Fat Transfer can successfully enhance cheeks, chin, lips, face, hands, and buttocks, and can fill furrows, wrinkles, and depressions. As people age, the fat underneath the skin becomes thin and the cheeks and areas around the eyes can appear sunken and drawn. Where the subcutaneous fat thins, wrinkles may also be more apparent.

How it Works: The technique involves removing fat from one part of the body, like the thigh, and injecting it in the same individual in another part of the body. This reduces the risk of an allergic reaction. The donor area is anesthetized using a local anesthesia and the fat is harvested using small syringes. It is then prepared and immediately injected into the treatment area. Excess fat can be frozen for future fat transfer procedures.

Recovery: Patients usually feel some discomfort during the fat harvesting, and a stinging sensation when the fat is re-injected into the treatment area. Slight swelling and bruising at the site can occur afterwards. Any pain can be controlled with oral medication.
Most patients do need to come in for additional treatments from time – to – time, but most of the transplanted fat will survive for up to five years, so fewer maintenance treatments are necessary as compared to other treatments such as dermal fillers (Juvederm or Restylane).

The Process:

  • Consultation: 30 minutes

  • Procedure: 30 minutes – 1 hour

  • Recovery: 3-5 days

  • Duration of results: years
