If you’ve ever heard of a Brazilian butt lift, you may also have heard of fat transfer. Most people are aware that liposuction can harvest fat from one area of your body and then graft it elsewhere such as the butt or breasts, but did you know facial fat transfer options offer great benefits as well? As we age, our bodies naturally lose fat in certain areas. When this happens in the face, it results in a sunken, hollow appearance. If you have begun experiencing loss of fat in your face, and if you have unwanted fat in other areas of your body, then a facial fat transfer may be perfect for you!
This is a minimally-invasive procedure, meaning you won’t have to worry about extensive downtime or recovery. We first harvest the fat from an area of the body that has excess. We don’t need very much, as we won’t be injecting a lot into your face. We then purify the fat we harvested, which allows us to safely inject it back into your skin to rejuvenate your appearance.
Who is a Candidate?
Unlike a Brazilian butt lift or a breast augmentation with fat transfer, we don’t require very much excess fat in order to perform a facial fat transfer. That said, an ideal candidate is someone who has realistic expectations in terms of what the procedure can accomplish. We can combine this procedure with others in order to maximize results, but the facial fat transfer alone is mainly targeted at erasing certain signs of aging on your face. We require so little fat that the area where we take the fat from will hardly be affected at all.
In addition, an ideal candidate is someone who is in good health and is a non-smoker. The results from this procedure are immediate and last long-term. Each case is unique, so your outcome can be discussed with you at your personalized consultation.
