A fat transfer procedure is an effective facial rejuvenation procedure, whether it’s used in conjunction with a facelift or instead of one. A fat transfer re-contours your face, and treats depressed areas, large furrows and volume losses in your lips and cheeks.
It is ideal for anyone with younger skin, who does not yet need full facial plastic surgery.
It works by collecting fat from your abdomen and immediately preparing it for transfer to the face. It is necessary to first over-correct the treated area, in order to compensate for the natural re-absorption that follows injection. Two or more sessions may be required.
Following the procedure, you will notice some swelling and discoloration of the skin around the injection and donor sites. This typically resolves over two or three weeks. Over the next several weeks, you may experience some firmness that may persist for the next week or two afterward.
Viability of the transferred fat is possible and some long-term correction can be achieved.
There are many benefits to fat transfers, including:
- Long-lasting results
- Natural-looking and natural-feeling results
- Safer than other methods currently in use
- Short recuperation
- No allergic reactions
- Simple process with supple results
