Restore your lost facial volume
As part of the natural aging process, collagen production slows, skin elasticity diminishes, and fatty tissue beneath the skin decreases. As a result, telltale signs of aging such as wrinkles, folds and hollows begin to develop.
This loss of volume can dramatically change your appearance – transforming your soft and youthful contours into sharp angles and an older look. A fat transfer uses unwanted fat from another area of your body to replace this lost volume and restore your youthful glow.
Should you consider a facial fat transfer?
Facial fat transfer is an appropriate procedure for patients with both early and advanced signs of aging. In general, if you see any of the following imperfections when you look in the mirror, a fat transfer may be able to help:
- Hollow areas
- Laugh lines
- Smile lines
- Crow’s feet
- Mouth lines
- Skin depressions
- Forehead wrinkles
- Thinning lips
The procedure: How the facial fat transfer process works
A facial fat transfer is a safe, in-office procedure that can be done in just a few hours. Because local anesthesia is used instead of general, your surgical risks are substantially reduced. The anesthetic will only be applied to the donor site (where fat is being extracted) and the recipient site (where the fat is being injected.)
To perform the procedure, Dr. Berkowitz will perform low-suction liposuction to remove unwanted fat from another area of your body, such as the buttocks, tummy, thighs or jowls. He will then process and purify the extracted fat, separating whole, undamaged fat cells to be used for the transfer. From there, Dr. Berkowitz will re-inject the fat cells into target areas on your face to correct imperfections and create a new, youthful contour.
