Service Description

The goal of any fat transfer procedure is to add fullness to the area which receives the fat grafts. Fat can be transferred to the face, lips, buttocks, breasts, or hands. With the face, fat can be transferred to the cheeks, nasolabial folds, jawline, and the lower eye area.

What are Fat Transfers?

The terms Fat Transfer, Fat Injections, Autologous Fat Transfer, and Fat Grafting all refer to the process of taking fat from an unwanted area (or areas) of your body and re-injecting purified adipose fat tissues into another area (or areas) of your body. The goal of any fat transfer procedure is to add fullness to the area which receives the fat grafts. Fat can be transferred to the face, lips, buttocks, breasts, or hands. With the face, fat can be transferred to the cheeks, nasolabial folds, jawline, and the lower eye area.

The 3 components of Fat Transfer are:

•    Extraction of fat with liposuction

•    Processing and centrifugation of fat

•    Re-injection of fat

What concerns does a facial fat transfer address?

Fat transferred from other areas of your body to your face will not only give some lifting to the general facial structure, but also improve the look of your skin. Patients seeking a fat transfer for facial rejuvenation often present these symptoms: 

1 -  fine lines and wrinkles

2 - crows feet

3 - under eye bags or dark circles

4 - worry and/or frown lines

5 - 'sunken' cheeks

6  tired look

How are Fat Transfers performed? 

Fat injections can be done under local or IV sedation anesthesia. Using thin cannulas, fat is harvested from the hip, inner or outer thigh, lower back, or lower abdomen. These areas are called the 'donor sites'. The fat is then decanted and processed in a special centrifuge, and is then injected into the desired facial area. The area where the fat is re-injected is called the 'recipient site'.

Recovery

You will likely have some discomfort as well as some swelling during the immediate post op period. The fat inyected will reduce about 40% because naturally the body will absorb it and dismiss it. The recovery period varies, but it usually takes 7 days.
