Fat Transfer Fort Lauderdale

As we age, we lose volume in our face resulting in an older and more tired look. In addition to undesirable skin changes contributing to wrinkle formation, volume loss in the face begins in most adults in their early 30′s. Much like a balloon is smooth and wrinkle free when full of air, the appearance and texture is much different when deflated. While traditional surgical correction and skin treatments address skin excess and quality, facial augmentation for replacement of volume loss is relatively new.

Fillers and volume enhancers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse have made a huge impact in the consumer market in facial volume replacement and wrinkle correction. They are easy to use, can have a profound impact, and require little recovery. Despite being effective in volume replacement, popular injectable fillers are unfortunately expensive, synthetic, and do not provide long term results.

Fat transfer involves augmentation of areas in need with fat cells harvested from the body. By using one’s fat, the result can be permanent with no risk of adverse reaction. The procedure is safe, minimally invasive, with minimal downtime and discomfort, and provides patients with a permanent, natural result. The procedure is usually performed with light sedation and local anesthesia for patient comfort. First a liposuction is performed to harvest the fat for the fat injections. After the fat is harvested and purified, it is injected areas of need in the face.

Following the procedure, most patients do not feel discomfort. While there may be bruising and swelling, patients can usually resume daily activities after a weekend of recovery.
