Fat Transfer

A Facial fat transfer, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves lifting and tightening the skin on the face and neck to create a more youthful and refreshed appearance. The result is a smoother, firmer, and more toned facial appearance with fewer wrinkles, sagging skin, and jowls.

Benefits

Individuals who wish to rejuvenate wrinkled, sunken, or scarred areas on their face but are not ready for invasive plastic surgery procedures such as a facelift, brow lift, or rhinoplasty, or who are not good candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic or dermal fillers now have a new treatment option. At Beautologie Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Aesthetics, we offer microlipoinjections to our patients. Also known as facial fat transfer, microlipoinjection uses the body's own fat to help restore contour to the cheeks, chin, or under the eyes, add volume to the lips, and even fill in scars left from acne or other conditions. The result is smooth, radiant skin and a more youthful appearance. We offer some of the most innovative facial fat transfer Bakersfield has to offer.

Before Facial Fat Transfer

Facial fat transfer patients meet with our surgeons at Beautologie Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Aesthetics for an initial consultation. Our surgeons will determine if patients are good candidates for facial fat transfer. Qualified candidates include adults with wrinkles, deep creases, frown lines, and other facial depressions who are looking for a younger, more refreshed appearance. People who suffer from lipoatrophy, or loss of fat in the face, are also good candidates for facial fat transfer. Patients with certain facial problems, deformities, or other medical conditions, however, may not make good candidates for the procedure. It is important that you discuss your medical history in detail with our surgeons so they can determine if facial fat transfer is right for you.

During the consultation, our surgeons will also evaluate your cosmetic goals so a complete understanding is reached between surgeon and patient. Facial fat transfer can be used on the forehead, between the eyebrows, on the cheeks, lips and temples, and near the eyes, nose, and mouth to correct various facial problems. However, some patients may benefit more from another cosmetic procedure, depending on their cosmetic goals. If this is the case, our surgeons will discuss other treatment options with you. Patients will also have the opportunity to bring up any questions or concerns they have about the treatment. To schedule an initial consultation for facial fat transfer, contact our practice today.

Facial Fat Transfer Procedure

Facial fat transfer provides a great alternative to other cosmetic treatments to sculpt and add volume to the face. There are three steps to the facial fat transfer process.

The first step involves removing excess fat from other areas of the patient's body. The surgeon uses liposuction techniques to collect undamaged fat cells, typically from the stomach, hips, thighs, and/or buttocks.

Second, the undamaged fat cells are then isolated from liquid and damaged fat cells. Only whole, undamaged, and cleansed fat cells can be used during the facial fat transfer process.

Finally, the undamaged fat cells are injected into targeted areas on the face for a more appealing facial contour. The entire procedure is performed under general anesthesia.

Patients who are interested in facial fat transfer as well as liposuction or a tummy tuck may find it more cost and time efficient to complete all the procedures at one time. For the ultimate makeover, facial fat transfer can be combined with laser skin resurfacing, medical-grade chemical peels, and other non-invasive aesthetic treatments we offer at our practice.

Benefits of Facial Fat Transfer

If you're looking for a facial fat transfer in Bakersfield, our practice is a great place to get it. Many patients choose facial fat transfer at our practice because of the benefits this procedure has over other forms of cosmetic treatment. The procedure is a minimally invasive treatment that delivers results similar to facelift surgery, brow lift surgery, eyelid surgery, and other facial plastic surgery treatments. We strive to provide the best facial fat transfer Bakersfield has available.

Because facial fat transfer is a natural procedure that uses the patient's own fat instead of animal or synthetic materials, there is no risk for an allergic reaction. In addition, the results from facial fat transfer last years longer than the results of other dermal injections.

Facial fat transfer is also a very versatile procedure. Microlipoinjections can be used anywhere on the face to eliminate wrinkles for a more youthful appearance, plump the lips for a more sensual pout, and to fill in scars, depressions, and other facial imperfections for flawless, natural-looking skin.
