Procedure

In Fat Transfer only natural, non-synthetic material (autologous fat) is used to re-contour your face and improve areas that are creased and sunken. During a Fat Transfer procedure, a patient’s own fat is removed from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks and is reinjected into specific areas of the face to restore volume. Common areas treated include the cheeks, lips, under-eye and chin.

Fat Transfer is performed with local anesthesia, which completely numbs both the donor and recipient areas. Treatment time is dependent on the areas being treated and can take up to 2-3 hours.

Fat Transfer can be used in any area of the face in need of volume restoration. Fat Transfer can also be used to correct aging of the hands and uneven contours resulting from surgery or trauma. Most common areas treated with Fat Transfer are:

  • Naso-labial folds (between the nose and oral commissure, the corner of the mouth)
  • Marionette folds (between oral commissure and jawline)
  • Lips (for volume enhancement)
  • Under-eye area
  • Temples
  • Chin

Results

Patients may want to avoid work activities for up to a week until swelling diminishes. Most patients will appreciate the results of a Fat Transfer procedure for years. Much of the transferred fat remains in place forever.
