Fat Transfer

The extra fat from your abdomen, flanks, legs, or arms can be transferred to your face.  Many patients like the idea of donating fat from these areas for a good cause!  This technique is often used as an alternative to temporary fillers when multiple syringes would become too expensive.  Most patients have an adequate supply of fat that can be recycled to both the grooves of the face and to restore youthful facial volume.  Two commonly asked questions are “How long does the fat last?” and “How much of the fat takes?”.  Typically, 30 percent of the fat takes and should last for years according to recent literature.
