Facial Volumizing With Fat Transfer
What Is Facial Fat Transfer?
One of the telltale signs of aging is a loss of firmness in the face. As individuals grow older, their faces may begin to appear hollow. The transfer of the body’s fat cells from elsewhere in the body is a natural means of regaining a vibrant, youthful appearance. Dr. Wise finds fat to be the ideal non-allergic soft tissue filler, in comparison to conventional dermal fillers. Fat transfer can be an effective way to reduce wrinkles and regain a more youthful appearance. By injecting fat harvested from your own body, Dr. Wise will enhance facial fullness, fill deep creases, soften facial wrinkles, plump up lips, and build up shallow contours.
The Wise Center for Plastic Surgery is one of the first practices in New Jersey to offer VECTRA 3-D, a 3-dimensional imaging system to simulate the proposed before and after results of your facial volumizing with fat transfer. Using this advanced 3-dimensional imaging technology, Dr. Wise can help you get an idea of a possible outcome once he performs aesthetic enhancement procedure. The best way to determine if you are a candidate for a fat injection is through a consultation with Dr. Wise. Dr. Wise will be able to show you many before and after pictures to explain this procedure and explore the potential results.
What Areas Can Fat Transfer be Used?
Fat transfer can be used to remove the hollow appearance around the eyes, cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lips, and other areas of the face, depending on the individual patient’s goals.
Fat injections are also a beneficial addition to other cosmetic surgery procedures performed at the same time.
What Does Fat Transfer Entail?
Fat transfer is a minimally invasive procedure performed on an outpatient basis. This procedure is generally performed under anesthesia at the Wise Center for Plastic Surgery. The procedure usually takes 30 minutes to an hour or more, depending on the patient, the volume to be injected, and additional procedures that are being completed concurrently.
During the procedure, pinpoint incisions are made. Then a device called a cannula is used to harvest fat cells from your thigh or abdomen. The fat is meticulously processed to purify the special cells through the use of a centrifuge, which spins the fat and removes impurities. These cells are then injected into the areas of your face that need rejuvenation.
What Can I Expect From My Fat Transfer Procedure?
This minimally invasive procedure involves a fast recovery, with minimal bruising, swelling and redness, in most cases. You can usually return to your normal daily routines soon after treatment. The recovery period may be longer, depending on the amount of fat removed and injected, and whether other procedures were performed concurrently.
During recovery, you may wear makeup to disguise the effects of the procedure and sunscreen (at least 30SPF+) to protect your results. Unlike the injection of other compounds, injected fat cells are unique because they are living cells. Following your treatment, about half the volume will remain long term. This means longer-lasting results, naturally. Contact us with any questions about fat transfer or our other procedures.
Fat Transfer NJ Patient Testimonials
Dr. Wise and his staff made me feel comfortable about their expertise from the very first appointment. Dr. Wise used his experience to combine several procedures which alone would not have produced the effect I wanted. The results were exactly what he said they would be – the cumulative effect utilizing my own unique history from previous facial procedures over the years. With the 3 procedures done as one “treatment”, the recovery was a bit longer than a simple skin lasering, but totally worth the wait. No pain either. The staff is kind, friendly, and helpful. My skin looks younger and tighter – so I look younger – almost like a mini-face lift. Patient from Kinnelon, NJ
I was preparing for the procedure for 5 years; always hesitated and scared. Then I talked to my friend who knows someone who had this procedure. I talked to her, she was a patient of Dr. Wise in 2007, and she was still happy in 2013. Then I decided. I called, had appointment, saw Dr. Wise, Maggie, Betty. I like the staff and feel good about the Doctor. The good thing is that Dr. called me the evening before surgery which made me feel much better and secure. Thank you Dr. Wise! Patient from New Jersey
