Fat Transfer to the Face
Taking fat from an unwanted area and using it as a filler in the face is a great option for patients and has been performed safely by doctors for nearly 30 years.
Fat is a natural and non-synthetic material that can give long-lasting to permanent results. Compared to Juvederm or Restylane that can last up to one year.
Fat Transfer to the face is best for patients needing more than four syringes of filler. In the case of patients that need less than four syringes and are seeking longer lasting results Bellafill may be the better filler alternative.
Fat is initially harvested in a gentle liposuction procedure and then processed to leave only intact fat cells. The next step is to use these fat cells like traditional fillers, like Restylane or Juvederm. The nice thing is that when up to 30cc of fat are used each session – that can equal to 30 syringes of Restylane at a price of over $15,000 and its effects are longer lasting.
