Fat Transfer

As we age the face tends to lose the fat, which helps creates a full, youthful appearance and prevent the development of lines and wrinkles. The transfer of small amounts of fat from one area of the body (such as the stomach or buttock) to the face, is a long lasting alternative to injections which are popular alternative options for treating this problems. This procedure, called autologous fat transfer, can be used to correct areas around the nose, eyes, mouth, and chin, as well as into the lips for a fuller appearance. In addition to lasting effects, the risk of sensitivities to the injected materials is avoided because it is the patients own tissue.
