What is Fat Grafting?
Fat Grafting is a permanent volume filler that is commonly referred to as stem cell face lift. During this treatment fat and stem cells are harvested from the patients body and then injected into the face. These fat cells are usually extracted from parts of the body such as the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs. The unwanted fat is taken from those areas and transferred into the face resulting in a feminine figure while also volumizing the face. This treatment can be done under local or regular anesthesia to minimize discomfort.
Areas of Use
Fat Grafting can be used in all areas of the face. It is most commonly used for the treatment of nasolabial folds (the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of the mouth), check augmentations, lip injections, and in the lower region of the face to minimize volume loss.
Expected Recovery from Fat Grafting
The expected recovery of a Fat Grafting treatment may be 7 to 10 days. There may be some bruising, swelling, and a minor discomfort from donor to recipient site.
Duration of Effect
Fat Grafting is permanent filler that can potently last forever. Results may vary depending on patients and after care, please contact our physician’s for more information.
