According to the most recent figures by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the Brazilian butt lift (buttock augmentation via fat transfer) was one of the surgical cosmetic procedures whose consumer demands increased last year. Here at our practice, another cosmetic procedure utilizing fat transfer is also starting to catch the attention of many clients — facial fat transfer.
How Facial Fat Transfer Works
As its name implies, facial fat transfer involves using a patient’s own fat to increase facial volume and consequently look fresher and younger. In most cases, fat is harvested from the stomach or thighs via liposuction. The fat is purified before it is reinjected into desired areas in the face such as the foreread, cheeks, lips, around the eyes, and around the mouth.
Advantages of Fat Transfer
Many of our patients choose to use their own fat for facial rejuvenation for the following reasons:
- Natural looking results
- Minimally invasive and doesn’t require general anesthesia
- Results are immediately noticed and can last for years
- There is no danger of the patient’s body rejecting the filler because it’s his or her own fat in the first place
- It’s like hitting two birds with one stone; liposuction in the donor part of the body could result to an enhancement as well
