Fat injections are a facial fat sculpting procedure performed at a medspa to restore more youthful contours to areas such as the cheeks, chin, and under-eye area. Fat injections can also be used to volumize the lips.
Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and also a plenitude of communities across the horizon have an opportunity to receive fat injections as dermal fillers at Motykie medical spa, which is led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie.
Autologous Fat Transfer
Fat injection procedure for facial enhancement is considered a safe treatment option because it uses the patient’s own body fat from surplus fat areas. The excess fat is injected into the depleted or sunken areas of the face to create a fuller, rounder face. As the patient’s own fat is utilized, the procedure of fat transfer will involve three steps.
Firstly, some amount of excess fat will be gently removed from a donor site using liposuction. The second step involves isolating and cleansing the fat cells for transfer. The third and final step involves fat cell transplantation, which is done by injecting the fat cells into the targeted recipient sites of the face. The procedure can be performed at a qualified medspa on an outpatient basis.
Facial fat injections can effectively remove aging signs such as frown lines, smile lines and marionette lines. It will help to mitigate furrows and deep wrinkles and creases, and fill the facial hollows under the cheekbones or under the eyes. If the lips have lost volume over the years, they can be rejuvenated with fat injections. Depressions and scars in the face can also be smoothed out with this injectable procedure.
Patients who suffer from lipoatrophy can benefit from facial fat transfer injections, and regain pleasing contours of the face. In some cases, fat transfer can complement dermal filler injections such as Radiesse or Juvederm Voluma. An advantage with autologous fat transfer is that no prior allergy tests will be required. Effects of fat injections can last from several months to two years. In some cases, the effects can sustain for several year or indefinitely.
In the first step of the procedure, the treatment provider will perform gentle liposuction to remove some amount of surplus fat from a donor site, which could be the buttocks, abdomen, hips, or thighs. Very low suction liposuction is applied to collect maximum undamaged fat cells. The collected fat is then spun through a centrifugal process to separate wholly undamaged fat cells, which will be used for facial fat transfer.
The purified fat cells are then injected into the marked areas of the face. A hypodermic syringe will be used to inject the fat cells at the desired depth. Recovery following the injections is quick, and many patients can return to their normal routine within hours or a day or two. Results will become apparent almost immediately, and will fully establish as the swelling recedes.
