Fat can be used as a filler for reversing the signs of aging and lifting wrinkles. Fat transfer is a safe natural, non allergic procedure that uses your body’s own fat to add volume back to the face. Fat is harvested from a donor site and can be reinjected into facial areas-cheeks, chin, jawline, nasolabial folds, temples, lips and scars.
A fat harvest is an in office procedure under local anesthesia, where fat is removed from an area of excess. The procedure takes one hour and medical clearance is needed. Additionally, we recommend arnica and bromeline pre-op for three days prior. Hips, abdomen, and legs are common fat donor sites. After the fat is removed, it is then injected into the areas to be treated. The procedure takes one hour and medical clearance is needed. The treated area is immediately swollen after injections. Bruising can also occur which resolves in about a week. Multiple injections are needed over time and spaced 4-8 weeks apart. Once grafted, fat can last up to two years.
Areas to be treated can include hollow cheeks, lines around the mouth and chin, acne scars, traumatic scars, and hands. Using your own fat is a wonderful filler alternative.
