Fat transfer is a quite popular procedure for patients of all ages. Some patients do not have the desired lines & curvatures that show off a beautifully contoured face. Fat transferred to certain areas such as the forehead, cheeks, upper eyelids can create beautiful lines. Some patients experience loss of fullness in their face which can result in a more aged and tired appearance. This loss of fullness accentuates sagging & wrinkles but can be much improved often with fat transfer to the whole face.
1. The surgery is performed by sedating the patient under general anesthesia and surgery takes approximately one hour.
2. Clean fat tissues from the abdomen or thighs are collected so that do not get damaged and stored properly for transplant.
3. Using a small injection needle, the collected fat tissues are evenly inserted into the subcutaneous tissue, muscle or fascia along the wrinkle lines.
4. If needed, the transplant will be completed with suture.
