In our younger years, facial fat is distributed equally, giving the face a full and youthful appearance. As we age, however, the natural collagen and elastin in our bodies begin to break down, causing a dip in our skin to occur. Our skin starts to lose volume and fat, resulting in our faces looking hollow. Many patients are delaying the aging process with the Fat Transfer Procedure to boost their confidence and rejuvenate their skin. During a Fat Transfer procedure (Fat Grafting), liposuction is applied to areas in the body with excess fat. The fat that is removed from these donor areas is purified and placed into small syringes, and then injected into areas of the face that may lack in volume.
With Fat Transfer, patients at Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging will get the most natural-looking results by using their own body fat to volumize areas of their face.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Patients who have lost facial fat and are experiencing a loss in volume in the face may be a good candidate for Fat Transfer. During a consultation appointment with our team at Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging, your skin will be examined to see if fat transfer is a good option for you. Our surgeon will look to see how much excess fat can be spared from donor sites in the body to be used as injections in the face.
What is the cost of Fat Transfer?
The cost depends on how extensive your procedure will be. At your free consultation, our surgeon will take your goals, skin, and body type into consideration, when calculating the cost.
