Fat Grafts & Fat Transfer
As we age, we lose volume in our face and the volume in the face starts to sag. While patients love dermal fillers, many of our patients desire more permanent fillers to plump the lips, lift the cheeks, or restore a youthful smile. Fat transfer is a wonderful procedure to help volumize the face.
Fat liposuction is done from areas that include the belly, love handles, and thighs. The fat is then processed and transferred into small syringes for injection. Since the fat is your own, there is no risk of rejection. The fat is a permanent filler for the face. As well, fat has substantial growth factors, so Dr. Carniol will use microfat and nanofat to revitalize skin tone and decrease laxity.
Dr. Carniol will perform the procedure in the office, keeping patients from going into the hospital and avoiding general anesthesia.
