Aging of the face involves a loss of fat which causes wrinkles that result in sunken temples, hollow cheeks, deeper frown and smile lines, thinner lips and a smaller chin. Lipo fat transplantation is a procedure in which fat is removed from the patient's buttocks, abdomen or thighs and injected into the face. A large percentage of the fat transferred "takes" to form a permanent graft in the patient's body. This fat is used to fill in the wrinkles. Fat Transfer surgery is performed in an outpatient basis with local anesthesia and usually takes about 90 minutes. Patients can usually return to work within a few days, although swelling may take longer to subside.Request a Consultation
