With age and weight loss, facial fat diminishes, which results in a gaunt appearance. With modern cosmetic surgical services, you can replace lost volume in your face, restoring smooth, youthful skin. While dermal fillers are an effective non-surgical option for some patients, others prefer all-natural facial rejuvenation using fat transfer. To learn more about this facial plastic surgery technique from our experienced Columbia plastic surgeon Dr. Adam L. Basner, please call The Plastic Surgery Center of Maryland at (410) 616-3000 to schedule a consultation.
Facial Fat Grafting and Lip Augmentation with Fat Transfer
Fat transfer is an innovative technique that allows you to move fat from one area of your body to another. There are many areas where you probably don't want fat – the belly, back, love handles and thighs. Dr. Basner harvests these excess fat cells using liposuction, cleans the fat, and then injects the fat beneath the skin in your face or in your lips to improve volume and shape. Fat grafting is used to improve the following:
- Gaunt, sagging cheeks
- Lips that have lost volume and definition
- Hollows beneath the eyes
- Deep nasolabial folds from the corners of the nose downward
Dr. Basner has been practicing cosmetic surgery for nearly 20 years. He has the training, skills and experience to help you develop a customized treatment plan that will allow you to get the final cosmetic result you want. He is personally committed to helping you restore your confidence with a fresher, smoother, more youthful facial appearance. In addition to facial fat transfer, he is an experienced Brazilian butt lift surgeon, using fat to augment and re-shape the butt.
Advantages of Fat Transfer in Facial Plastic Surgery
If you choose fat transfer for facial rejuvenation or lip augmentation, you can benefit from the following advantages:
- Facial rejuvenation without artificial material
- Takes fat from an area you don't want it
- Long-lasting results
- Beautiful, natural outcomes
Many people like the fact that they can restore volume to their faces using their own fat cells, instead of artificial or animal material. Of course, an added benefit is that an area of fat is slimmed down. Men and women alike can be good candidates for facial fat grafting, and Dr. Basner can help you decide if it is the right procedure for you.
