One of the most frustrating parts of aging is losing volume in areas such as the cheeks, eyelids and lips. This can drastically alter your appearance, leaving your face appearing gaunt and sunken in. In order to restore your youthful appearance, you can use your body’s own natural fat tissue to re-volumize these areas through fat transfer treatments.

What is fat transfer?

Fat transfer is the process of removing excess fat from locations like the abdomen, buttocks and thighs, and repurposing it to add volume to areas on your face that have lost fullness with age. This process is safe and highly effective. And since you are using your body’s own existing fat, the chances of an allergic reaction or rejection are dramatically reduced compared to other fillers.

Fat transfers are performed as an outpatient procedure, and require virtually zero downtime. Pain is typically minimal and usually subsides by the next day. Bruising is typically minimal to nonexistent, and residual swelling is mild to moderate.

Ideal patients for fat transfer are physically healthy nonsmoking adults who do not have pre-existing medical conditions or circulation problems. It is also important that patients have a positive outlook with specific and realistic goals in mind for the procedure.
