What is Fat Transfer and Injections?
After your fat has been removed by liposuction, it can be used to augment the shape of other parts of your body. This is an exciting technique employed to shape the face, hands, breasts, and buttocks. As opposed to artificial fillers, this procedure uses your own tissue to enlarge and enhance your features. This is a well-tolerated procedure, and it produces natural looking and natural–feeling results. Fat transfer injections appeal to those who want to reverse the signs of aging without plastic surgery; however, a fat injection requires experienced sculpting skill to create an optimal aesthetic appearance. Because fat transfer uses your own fat tissue, the procedure is considered quite safe for most patients. A fat injection is a personalized cosmetic procedure determined by how a patient wants to look after the transfer.
What are the Benefits of Fat Transfer and Injections?
Fat transfer injections are an excellent option for patients seeking to correct wrinkles, creases, lines, lack of volume, and slight facial imperfections. Fat transfer is a cosmetic procedure that involves taking excess fat from a part of your body and injecting it into a treatment area. The fat injected into the face or body is used instead of artificial dermal fillers to add youthful volume to the hands, neck, or face. If you wish to enhance the shapeliness of your hips or thighs, you can harvest skin from your belly and transfer it to the desired areas.
What is a Candidate for Fat Transfer and Injections?
Candidates for fat transfer have areas of unwanted fat and other areas on the body that seem to have a loss of volume or appear creased or sunken, such as the cheeks. Patients wishing to have a more permanent result than those achieved with dermal fillers may consider fat transfer.
What is the Procedure for Fat Transfer and Injections?
Fat transfer injection, also known as microlipoinjection, is a process whereby your own fat is injected into areas of the face or other parts of your body to enhance fullness and volume. Fat transfer injections are an advanced injectable treatment that uses your own fat to fill in and correct lines, wrinkles, creases, folds, and other visible signs of aging. Dr. Nimtz will offer you a sedative or local anesthesia to make sure you remain comfortable during your procedure as fat is harvested from an area of your body via liposuction. The most common harvest sites are the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. The harvested tissue is allowed to separate and isolate the fat cells, and then the fat cells are injected into the treatment area with a very fine-gauge needle. The fat may be used to enhance facial contours, fill in cheeks, add fullness and volume to the lips, and smooth out lines and wrinkles. Fat injections or transfers require one to three hours, depending on the number of areas treated.
