Fat beneath the skin of your face depletes over time. Fat loss is the primary reason the face seems to deflate and droop in advanced age. Perky, firm pads of fat beneath your cheeks eventually descend.
This loss of volume not only changes the shape of your face, it also allows deep furrows and wrinkles to form. By restoring the padding beneath the skin, we can restore a youthful facial shape and smooth skin. Fat transfer provides a way to replace lost volume with your own natural tissue.
Here is how it works:
- Excess fat cells are removed with liposuction from an area of excess, such as your tummy, thighs, buttocks, hips or arms
- The fat is purified and the desired fat material is isolated so that it can be re-injected
- The purified fat cells are placed in precise facial areas with a series of tiny injections
Our physicians have been specially trained to perform this technique. The removal of the fat cells and their re-injection will all be completed in a single appointment.
