Fat transfers are becoming a much more popular way of adding volume where it is needed without having to redo cosmetic injectables every few months. Fat transfers are a great way for patients to address specific areas of the face and body, including the lips and hands, where volume loss naturally occurs with time. Dr. Fredric Stern and his team at The Stern Center for Aesthetic Surgery are pleased to offer this as an alternative for patients seeking more permanent volume restoration.
How does a fat transfer work?
The fat transfer procedure, sometimes called “fat grafting,” is a treatment during which the doctor will remove fat cells from one area of the body, such as the buttocks, thighs, or abdomen, and then reinject them elsewhere. This allows for improved volume in a permanent manner and eliminates the need for manmade injectables. Many patients find that fat transfers provide natural-looking results when administered by a dedicated professional such as Dr. Fredric Stern.
Places to use fat transfers
Our team finds the following areas to the be the most popular for fat transfers:
- Face – the face has many areas where volume loss can occur, including around the cheeks. Patients can also utilize fat cells to fill folds on the face that are moderate to severe.
- Lips – adding volume to the lips can make them appear more youthful while also ensuring natural symmetry.
- Hands – volume loss from the hands can be one of the first signs of aging patients notice. By adding fat cells into the hands, there will be less wrinkles and skin laxity.
