Fat Transfer for Facial Rejuvenation


Injectable facial fillers (Volume, Lyft, Belotero, Restylane and Juvederm) are the most common methods of reinflating the aging face.  I also am a huge proponent of cheek implants which is a permanent treatment.  Fat transfer is another method of using ones own (and often times plentiful) fat to fill out sagging facial tissues and plump lips.  There are  pluses and minuses of fat injection and it is less popular than in the past due to advances in filler technology.  It is however a viable alternative for various situations and remains in the armamentarium of many cosmetic surgeons.  See video below to watch the fat transfer procedure.  Warning: this video shows actual surgery and viewer discretion is advised.
