Fat Transfer is a technique that uses the patient’s own fat to restore or create volume where there is a lack of volume due to aging or facial imbalances. Many people start to see a loss of valuable volume in their faces as they age which can create a “sunken-in” appearance. Sometimes we want extra volume in places we’ve never had it–such as the lips or check bones. The fat transfer (sometimes called Fat Grafting) takes fat from one area of the body where the patient has a little extra, processes it and re-injects it into the area lacking fat. The most common areas we treat with fat transfer are the upper cheeks, hands, lips, temples, and the chin.
