What is fat transfer?
Fine lines and wrinkles can be filled with fat taken from other parts of the body. Fat transfer is also referred to as autologous fat transplantation or micro-lipoinjection. This procedure is used to plump up facial features with a patient's own fat and is a popular alternative to other wrinkle treatments.
What can a fat transfer treat?
Fat transfer to the face is a safe, natural, non-allergenic procedure designed to re-contour your face and can provide definition to your cheeks and chin. It can also be used to correct facial deformities.
What is the treatment plan?
During fat transfer, your doctor will remove fat from your thighs, buttocks, or abdomen via liposuction and then transfer it to any area of your body. The injected fat will last the longest in areas of the body that remain relatively still.
With a small syringe, fat is drawn from an area of the body where your fat is tightly packed, such as your abdomen or your buttocks. The fat is then processed to remove excess fluids and re-injected using a new needle, which is placed just under your skin beneath the wrinkle.
