The Fat Transfer Procedure?
The fat transfer to the face procedure begins by harvesting fat from your donor site, usually the abdomen or thigh. The harvested fat is treated and transfer into small syringes. The fat is then placed into the facial areas needing volume using a very small instrument call a cannula. Small amounts of fat are transferred in a three dimensional fashion creating a natural appearance to the fat transfer area.
What Areas Can a Fat Transfer Treat?
Fat transfer to the face can restore sunken temples, flatten cheek bones, hollow cheeks, nasolabial grooves, weakness of the jaw bone to name a few of the most popular fat transfer areas. In addition to restoring youthful volume many patients note their skin has a healthier glow.
How long does fat transfer to the face last?
Once the transplanted fat cells have established themselves in the face, the volume effect will last several years. However, the aging process continues including changes to the bone thinning of the skin and further soft tissue volume loss.
What Are the Advantages of a Fat Transfer?

Another advantage of fat transfer to the face is the ability to treat multiple areas of volume loss at one time.
