Fat Transfer

The Ultimate in Natural Facial Rejuvenation

Fat transfer, also known as autologous fat grafting or fat injections, is a type of natural soft tissue filler.   Fat transfer is an excellent means to treat the Deflation element of the 3 D’s of the aging face.   Using a patient’s own fat reserves, fat is gently removed from a predetermined body area like the abdomen, thighs or knees and skillfully transferred to another area, usually the face.  Fat is used in virtually all facial areas including the lower eyelids, eyebrow, lips, cheeks or midface, nasolabial folds (smile lines or laugh lines) that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth. The fat is utilized to restore a youthful facial appearance, enhance the lips or to fill in lines and creases that develop as we age.   Fat transfer has been used for decades.  Advancement with this technique continues to progress.  Most recently, the technique of Adipose Derived Stem Cell Fat Transfer has been born.  This technique involves isolating your own adult stem cells from the harvested fat and then reinjection of these stem cells into the desired area.  This treatment has greatly improved the fat’s survival and success of the procedure.Autologous Fat transfer (taking fat from an area of a patient’s body where it is plentiful and transferring it to an area of volume loss) can be an excellent way to replace lost fullness. For many decades, fat transfer has been performed to correct causes of facial aging, such as volume loss, sagging, lines and wrinkles. New techniques used to harvest and implant the fat have improved post-transfer fat survival. In fact, fat transfer around the eyes and mouth is now commonly used to enhance the results of other facial cosmetic procedures, such as facelifts.

Transferring a patient’s own fat has always been an attractive idea because there are no allergic reactions, the fat is readily available and affordable and a variety of conditions including facial-volume loss can be treated. When performed appropriately, the procedure can yield satisfying, long lasting natural-looking, and youthful results.
