With fat transfer and injections, we can use your natural, unwanted body fat to restore facial volume and rejuvenate the appearance. Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness offers this advanced facial contouring technique to patients living in High Point, Fayetteville and Greensboro, NC.
What Is Involved in Fat Transfer and Injections?
Fat transfer and injections, also referred to as fat grafting, is an advanced body and facial contouring technique that involves taking unwanted fat from one area of the body and using it to augment another. This is done by combining liposuction with dermal filler and injectable techniques.
Fat transfer and injections offer a few benefits over other facial contouring treatments. First, they enable patients to remove unwanted fat from another area of the body. This can provide body contouring benefits in areas like the legs, abdomen, or buttocks.
Second, since the treatment is performed with a patient’s own fat, there is no risk of allergic reaction or related side effects. For these reasons, fat transfer and injections are a popular solution for enhancing facial volume and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Are Fat Transfer and Injections Right for Me?
If you would like to enhance facial volume and reduce lines and wrinkles, all while targeting unwanted body fat, you may be a good candidate for fat transfer and injections. As with all our procedures, we are proud to offer financing options for the fat transfer and injection treatment to make it a more affordable treatment for those who desire it.
How Does a Fat Transfer and Injection Treatment Work?
The fat transfer and injection treatment is performed using various forms of anesthesia to ensure your safety and comfort. The first step of treatment involves performing liposuction to collect unwanted body fat. Once this fat is collected, it will be purified to prepare it for re-injection into the face.
At this point, we will administer injections into and around the desired area to increase facial volume and produce the desired results. Given the steps involved in the fat transfer and injection treatment, this process typically takes an hour or two.
What Can I Expect During Recovery From Fat Transfer and Injections?
Recovering from fat transfer and injections involves the recovery from liposuction and the recovery from your facial injections. Patients may need to take a day or two off of normal activities to allow themselves to rest and heal. Some bruising, swelling, and varying discomfort can be expected for the first few days. However, patients are able to resume most normal activities within a week of treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from Fat Transfer and Injections?
The results from your fat transfer and injection treatment will be visible immediately, thanks to an instant boost in facial volume that diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and lines. These results will continue to improve as any swelling and related side effects fade.
Most dermal filler products are slowly broken down by the body over time, directly limiting the duration of results that patients can enjoy. However, the fat injected with the fat grafting technique will not be broken down by the body. You will only notice gradual changes in facial volume due to the natural aging process. This means that the results from fat transfer and injections can last for years.
