Fat Transfer & Injections in Florida
One of the most common signs of aging is the loss of firmness and fat in the face and other areas. Fat transfers utilize harvested fat from areas of your body and is then injected into the problem areas to help achieve a naturally youthful appearance.
What are Fat Transfers and Injections?
A fat transfer is a procedure that involves harvesting fat from other areas of your body and injecting it into areas that are showing signs of aging. This procedure helps to restore fullness and accentuate contours in your face. Fat transfers can be injected into various parts of your face, including around the mouth, under the eyes, in the forehead and more.
Benefits of Fat Transfers and Injections
Fat transfers can help to correct sunken areas of your skin, thinning lips or uneven contours in your face. Since the fat is harvested from part of your body, it eliminates the risk of allergy. Plus, it can help reduce unwanted fat in areas, such as the thighs, back or buttocks. Fat injections can help to repair problems, such as acne scars, sunken eyes, crow's feet, forehead furrows, facial depressions and fine lines and wrinkles. Fat can also be transferred into other areas of the body, such as the hands, to help achieve more natural-looking results.
Is a Fat Transfer Right For Me?
Just about anyone can enjoy the benefits of a fat transfer and injection. With time and age, our bodies naturally lose elasticity and necessary fat, which can cause the skin to sag and wrinkles to form. If you are unhappy with these common signs of aging, a fat transfer might be an ideal procedure for you.
How Involved Are Fat Transfers and Injections?
The fat transfer procedure begins with a qualified and experienced physician harvesting fat from the donor sites on your body. This process is similar to liposuction and may be combined with traditional liposuction to achieve maximum results. Next, the fat is purified to remove impurities and then transferred to a syringe and prepared for injection. Finally, your fat is injected into the target areas to enhance the contour and fullness of your skin.
Recovery After Fat Transfers and Injections
The recovery time after a fat transfer will vary depending on the extent of your treatment and the areas being treated. Patients should expect to take some time off to recover. Before undergoing a fat transfer, discuss the procedure in detail with a board-certified plastic surgeon or qualified specialist. The results will become visible once any swelling, bruising or redness subsides.
How Much Does a Fat Transfer Cost?
The cost of fat transfers and injections will differ based on multiple factors, including how many injections are required and the areas that are being treated. Your board certified plastic surgeon will provide you with additional information during your consultation.
