Fat Transfer to the Face
Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedure to Reduce Folds & Wrinkles
As people live longer and healthier lives, more and more of us are searching for ways to look as young as we feel. As we age, the fat and collagen beneath the skin begins to diminish, resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. This can be further exacerbated by sun damage, heredity, disease, trauma, and scarring.
Today’s natural, injectable fillers provide a safe, non-surgical option to correct those unwelcome lines, folds and wrinkles. The end result is a restoration of those timeless, youthful elements that help you look as young and beautiful as you feel.
Fat Transfer to the Face Procedure by Dr. Eric Weiss
Dr. Weiss begins your initial consultation by reviewing before and after photos of other natural filler patients, and will help you select the level of correction for you to achieve your desired look. All applicable costs will also be reviewed during this confidential appointment.
Your fat transfer procedure is performed using local anesthesia and takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete. Dr. Weiss will use liposuction to remove fat from the buttocks, abdomen, or thighs. This fat is then purified and injected into the treatment region to restore a more youthful appearance.
There is no recovery or downtime, and you will achieve natural results that last many years. In some instances, it may take more than one treatment to achieve your desired results. The main issue with fat transfer recovery is swelling. Even minimal area of the under eye area can create a somewhat distorted look. Swelling does not usually last long, but that can vary from person to person.
