Full, feature-defining lips are more than just a trend; they have become an aesthetic ideal. However, you don’t have to only use a dermal filler to augment your lips. Fat injections provide patients with a natural way to add subtle volume to their lips.
If your lips have grown thinner as a result of the aging process, or you have simply been genetically predetermined to have thinner lips, we can use this cosmetic procedure to augment your lips and help you enjoy permanent results.
Another area of the body that many women want to improve is the buttocks. Not everyone has the time nor the desire to spend hours in the gym building their gluteal muscles, and the good news is, you don’t have to if you don’t want to. We can perform a Brazilian butt-lift-esque treatment by using fat grafting to administer fat injections into different areas of the buttocks.
This procedure will help increase the size and improve the proportions of your backside and help you achieve your aesthetic ideal. Results are natural and permanent so long as you don’t lose significant weight after your procedure is complete.
Breast augmentation is a very popular cosmetic procedure that helps women achieve their ideal breasts. If you’re not interested in using breast implants to improve the appearance of your breasts, you’re not excluded from breast augmentation. We can use fat grafting to naturally augment your breasts with your own body fat to add volume to the area and increase their size.
This procedure can be completely customized to your aesthetic ideals and goals. It’s the perfect option for those who want to add volume to their breasts without using an implant or drastically increasing the size of their breasts.
As you age, you begin to lose volume in different areas of the body. The hands are not excluded from volume loss or the aging process, but there is a way to reverse the signs of aging on the hands. If you’ve noticed that your hands don’t look as full or as youthful as they used to, and your bones, veins, and tendons have become more visible, you don’t have to just live with it.
We can inject fat into the backs of your hands to restore natural volume to the area. In doing so, we can hide those bony tendons and veins and restore youth to your hands and help you feel more confident about their appearance.
Many patients turn to dermal fillers to restore volume to different areas of the face and create new contours. Dermal fillers provide an immediate and very effective way to combat the aging process and improve your appearance, but they aren’t your only option.
We can use fat grafting to restore volume in different areas of your face that have been affected by the aging process. In doing so, you will feel more like your younger self again, and your results will be completely natural and long-lasting. An initial consultation is the best way to determine which areas of your face could benefit from these injections.
How Does It Work?
One of the benefits of this cosmetic procedure is that it enables patients to improve two different body areas within a single procedure. First, we’ll help you choose your donor site, the location from which stubborn fat will be removed, processed, and re-injected into the body to improve the appearance of a specific area.
You’ll have less fat volume in one of your problem areas while simultaneously increasing the volume in another problem area, which will help correct aesthetic imperfections and aging-related concerns, and help you feel more confident about your body.
The fat removal process happens through liposuction. A small incision is made into an area with stubborn fat. Then, a surgical technique is used to remove the stubborn fat directly out of the body. A cannula is inserted into the incision, and the fat is gently suctioned from the area. Then, once removed from the area, it will not come back. You’ll get to enjoy significantly less fat volume in your target area and enjoy your results long-term.
Fat Processing and Re-Injection
Once the fat is removed from your problem area, it will be prepared into an injectable form. The fat is typically put into a liquid form and then injected into a specific area of the body to improve the area’s appearance. This is a precise process, and the surgeon will use some specific techniques and will carefully consider the placement of the newly injected fat cells so that you can achieve the best results.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is There Any Downtime?
Most patients need to plan around some amount of downtime after their procedure. Since this procedure can be used to improve the appearance of different areas of the body, recovery times will look different based on the patient’s treatment plan. You will have to follow some very important post-operative directives to ensure that you achieve the best results. Our team will provide you with details about these instructions during your consultation.
When Will I See Results?
Since it takes time for the new fat cells to adhere to their new body location, it will take time for you to experience your final results. Most patients begin to experience the best results within the first few months following their procedure. Based on the area you choose to treat, the newly transplanted fat cells can take up to six months to permanently adhere to the injection area.
How Long Will My Results Last?
One of the benefits of this cosmetic procedure, regardless of where it is performed, is that the results are permanent. As long as you do not lose a significant amount of weight, which will cause your fat cells to shrink, you can expect long-lasting results, and you’ll be able to enjoy them indefinitely.
Am I a Candidate?
If you are looking for a natural way to improve some specific areas of your body and achieve completely natural-looking results, you may be the perfect candidate for fat grafting. The best candidates for this cosmetic procedure are patients in good health and who have enough fat cells in one area of the body that can act as a donor site for the treatment site. It’s also important that patients have realistic expectations about the procedure and their final results.
