Female Facial Fat Injections

New York City (NYC), Manhattan and all of New York (NY)

As we age, we often lose fat in places where we want it, such as the face, breasts, and buttocks, and gain it in places where we don't want it, like the stomach, arms, and thighs. Now it is possible to remove fat from some of the places where you don't want it and use it to restore the youthful contours you have lost. Advanced fat transplant procedures can help you get the contours you desire without the use of artificial implants or fillers.

How Fat Transplant Works

In fat transplantation, liposuction is used to remove fat from a donor region. The donor region can be any place where you have excess fat, but most often includes:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs

After removal, the fat is processed, then it is reinjected in the area where it is desired. Although breast augmentation with fat transplant is still controversial, fat transplantation is regularly used for facial contouring (often in conjunction with a facelift procedure) and buttock augmentation.

The Benefits and Risks of Fat Transplantation

Fat transplantation continues to grow in popularity because of its advantages. Because the fat used is your own tissue, the risks of infection and rejection are very low. Also because it is your own tissue, some of the fat may survive the procedure to live in the new location, leading to long-lasting or even permanent results.

The main risk of fat transplantation is that the transplanted fat may not all survive, and as some of the fat dies and is absorbed, it may lead to uneven contours that must be corrected with a second or, in rare cases, a third procedure.
