Fat Transfer to the Face
The goal of fat transfer to the face is to give a more permanent fullness to the cheeks, lips and other areas of the face. As we age our faces lose volume which is why many women choose to undergo facial fillers to restore a youthful fullness to the face. Fat grafting involves harvesting fat from the body (generally the abdomen). The fat is then processed so only healthy appearing fat is used and then it is reinjected into the face and lips to restore volume that is more permanent than traditional filler injections. This procedure is often done in conjunction with other facial procedures like face lifts, eyelid surgeries, and neck lifts. Please note this procedure is performed by Dr. Surjit Rai only.
