    What is a Fat Transfer Procedure?

    A fat transplantation surgery or fat transfer procedure is a cosmetic treatment option that aims to replace volume loss.

    This type of procedure is typically given to individuals who want to replace lost volume in their face.

    It works by removing excess fat from one portion of the body, such as the flanks or abdomen, purifying it, and then reinjecting it into the face.

How Does Fat Transfer Work?

    It works in 3 steps:

    • The first step is the selection of the donor site and the fat removal. Our surgeon will choose a donor site with you and administer local anesthesia. A small incision will be made along the donor site, so that a cannula attached to a syringe, can carefully extract fat for the fat transfer process.

    • Next, the fat will be purified in a centrifuge to remove any impurities. The fat cells will be transferred to small syringes, which will be used to inject the fat into the facial site. 
    • Finally, the area that will receive the fat injection will have a cannula inserted into an incision point. The injection site will be passed over multiple times to ensure that all fatty tissue deposits are evenly deposited into the natural tissue planes in the face.

    The fat transfer procedure not only transforms the appearance of your face, but you’ll also experience an increase in the quality of your skin, as the transferred fat deposits will improve the tone of your face, as well as, the texture.

    How to Prepare for a Fat Transfer?

    If you are a smoker, you will need to stop 4-6 weeks in advance. You will also need to stop taking any vitamins, homeopathic regimens, and NSAIDS before treatment.

    You will also need to keep yourself well hydrated and arrange to have someone take you home and monitor you for 24-hours after the treatment.

    Who Can Receive a Fat Transfer? 

    This type of procedure is suitable for both men and women who are healthy, who have no underlying medical conditions, and who want to rejuvenate their face without any surgical risks.   Any of the following are reasons to consider a fat transfer: 

    • Wanting to smooth out deep horizontal lines in the forehead, around the eyes, or in and around the eyebrow area.
    • Plumping up hollow or depressed areas around the eyes or temples.
    • Smoothing out deep lines around the mouth and nose.
    • Sprucing up poor lip definition or deflated lips.
    • Increasing cheek volume.
    • Adding volume to a smaller chin size to increase its appearance.

    Should I Expect Scarring?

    The only scarring that you may have is along the donor site where the fat is removed with liposuction.

    The scarring is typically very small, can be hidden, and will naturally fade over time.

    Visible scarring is more likely on individuals who have darker pigmented skin.

    What Does Recovery Look Like After a Fat Transfer?

    During weeks 1-2, there will be a significant amount of swelling and bruising, so you’ll want to take the time off work.

    You should see improvement between days 7-10 and you’ll be able to apply makeup to help camouflage any residual signs of the procedure.

    Subtle swelling can persist for weeks afterward.
