fat injection

Minimally invasive solutions, such as Botox® or dermal fillers, are designed to reduce the visible effects of aging while avoiding the long recovery periods and extreme techniques of surgery. Fat injection is an alternative technique to add volume to your face that uses your own body fat to achieve a similar result. 

Like fillers, fat injections can restore a more youthful look, create fuller lips, and reduce wrinkles. They can also treat acne scarring. And because it is your own tissue, there is minimal risk of allergic reaction. Your own body fat also lasts longer than most other filler products. 

Fat injection procedures usually take longer than other minimally invasive techniques because we first have to extract the necessary material from another site in your body using liposuction or a syringe. We then purify it in a centrifuge and inject it into precise locations. The face is the most common location for fat augmentation, but recent popularity of this technique has expanded its use into breast surgery and buttock augmentation.
