The word fat has a negative connotation — from being overweight to health issues like high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure. However, fat transfer or fat grafting is one of the cosmetic surgery trends today that has worked to the benefit of many of our patients at Creative Image Laser Solutions. These fat transfer procedures include buttock enhancement via fat transfer (also known as the Brazilian butt lift), breast augmentation with fat grafts, and facial fat transfer.
Areas of the face that benefit from fat transfer
The goal of facial fat transfer is to restore a patient’s youthful vigor through a boost in facial volume.
Fat transfer to the cheeks not only restores plumpness but can also lift a drooping nasal tip. Additionally, the appearance of jowls, thinning lips, and marionette lines (creases that run from the corners of the mouth down to the chin) can also be significantly reduced with fat transfer to the area.
Tear trough deformities and hollowness in the area above the upper cheeks, which creates the illusion of dark under eye areas, can also benefit from fat transfer. Other areas that respond well to fat transfer include the chin, eyebrows, and the glabella (area between the brows).
You choice of injector is important. Experience with fat transfer and expertise in facial anatomy are crucial to achieving your desired outcomes.
