THE BASICS OF FAT TRANSFER
Here’s a primer on the basics of fat transfer! Right now there’s nothing quite like fat transfer. It’s a unique approach which harvests cells from a donor site (usually the abdomen, flanks, or thighs) and implants it into a target area. These harvested fat cells are purified using a centrifuge, resulting in a thick liquid which is immediately injected into the face to fill in hollow areas. The cells establish themselves and offer ongoing, long-term results, eliminating the need for continuing maintenance treatments. In almost all cases it’s a more economical choice than fillers, and the procedure typically pays for itself in about 2 years.
When the procedure is performed, the plastic surgeon will slightly overfill the treated area. This is because not all of the fat transferred to the face will survive permanently. Some of the cells will die within the first 6 months, which will make the volume levels dip somewhat. Once the six month mark has passed, however, the remaining cells should be permanently established.
In short, fat transfer to the face is an all-natural solution for one of the most complicated sign of aging. For all practical purposes the facial enhancement is permanent, and the majority of patients are delighted with their final look!
