Patients now have a new option for a longer-lasting approach to improve the signs of facial aging. Dr. Tim Love offers the small volume micro fat grafting technique using a patient’s own fat cells, which may serve as a remarkable resource of facial fillers in place of or in addition to man-made injectable fillers such as Juvederm or Radiesse.
Facial areas which benefit from this small volume micro fat grafting procedure include the malar, lower eyelids, nasolabial fold, marionette lines, lips and forehead. This new technique is also often performed in conjunction with a facelift and/or eyelid surgery.
Advantages of fat transfer for facial enhancement include:
- The use of the patient’s own tissue instead of a short-lived injectable filler
- Aesthetic improvements by liposuction harvesting from areas of unwanted or excessive fat (abdomen, hips & flanks are common donor sites)
Limitations of fat transfer technique include:
- Inadequate availability of fat volumes
- Greater expense compared to traditional procedures
As with all plastic surgery, each patient should first consult with Dr. Love or their preferred physicians to determine the approach best for them. A consultation with a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery helps to ensure thorough evaluation and implementation of the most beneficial techniques available.
