Showing signs of aging is a natural and unavoidable part of growing older. Unfortunately, some of the more common visible age signs like fine lines, wrinkles, and areas of lost volume can take their toll on your appearance and make your face look old and tired beyond your years. For patients who are considering undergoing a facial rejuvenation procedure, but may not require a face lift or another form of facial plastic surgery, I typically recommend cosmetic facial injections like facial fillers or Botox® Cosmetic injections. Today I’ll be focusing on a unique type of cosmetic facial injection: fat transfer injections for the face.
During a fat transfer procedure, I begin by removing fat from an area of the patient’s body like the abdomen or thighs with liposuction. The removed fat is then safely purified and subsequently injected back into specific points in the face to restore lost volume and deliver a more natural, younger-looking appearance. While needs and preferences vary from patient to patient, many of my patients love fat transfer for the face due to the natural, long-lasting results it can provide.
In the video below, I detail fat transfer injections for the face and explain which patients may benefit most from this specific procedure:
