What is a Fat Transfer?

Your age is in your face and whether you have a striking smile, piercing eyes or glowing youthful looking skin can make you feel decades younger.  As a North Carolina facial plastic surgeon, I strive to provide my patients with treatments and procedures to give them the rejuvenated face they feel confident with.  A facial fat transfer by fat grafting is a great procedure if you are looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles & folds or if you want to change the overall shape of your face. This low intensity procedure will have your face looking buoyant and beautiful.  For more information on facial fat transfers, contact my office, Carolina Facial Plastics, and schedule a consultation.

Fat Transfer In Charlotte

As a facial plastic surgeon, I know how important it is for patients to receive the optimal procedure to achieve their beauty needs.  A facial fat transfer by fat grafting is an excellent option for those looking to add volume to the sunken areas beneath the eyes, the cheeks, chin, jawline, temple, or laugh lines.  Facial fat grafting in Charlotte also fixes asymmetrical facial features!   By using your own fat, I am able to help rebuild and adjust the specific parts of you face that need attention.

At Carolina Facial Plastics in Charlotte, facial fat transfers are a common and proven method of improving your overall appearance and confidence.  The fat transfer, also known as an autologous fat transfer, is natural, as it uses the fat that is already in you body!  The injections are also safe and non-allergenic.

The injections can either be preformed in our office, as an outpatient under local anesthetic, or in an operating room.  The first step is to remove fat from a tightly packed area in your body, usually around the thighs or abdomen.  This fat will be processed to remove excess liquid and I will then inject into the areas of you face we have discussed.  You face will receive volume in these natural fat compartments like under your eyes or in your cheeks. Immediately, your eyes will be less droopy and your face more full!

Fat Transfer Results

As a Charlotte fat transfer is a minimal invasive procedure, there is only a short time for recovery.  In the first few days and weeks after the procedure your face will appear a little swollen.  It is common practice to inject more fat cells than necessary, as the some fat is absorbed back into the body naturally.  The first thing patients notice after the procedure is the lack of wrinkles and the improved facial volume.

The results last up to 3 years and, though this depends on the patient, only one procedure is typically necessary.  If there are other areas that a patient notices they would also like improve, it is very easy to preform another treatment to receive the desired results.
