Fat Transfer San DiegoIt’s truly amazing what medical science has made possible for us in this day in age. Now, more than ever before, you can fight the aging process and achieve gorgeous results with the help of advanced cosmetic treatments. In many cases, with little to no pain or downtime, a fairly simple on-site procedure can help you feel more beautiful and put an extra little swing in your step.

One of the most popular courses of treatment is the Fat Transfer. At Shumway Cosmetic Surgery in La Jolla, we’ve found the Fat Transfer to be an excellent choice for those who want to enhance their appearance but aren’t comfortable with synthetic materials. It provides great results naturally!

What exactly is Fat Transfer?

Fat Transfer is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the face, as well as to give an overall more youthful and exuberant look.

As we begin to age, the first thing we tend to notice is that our faces start to look “deflated” over time. This can be due to the drooping of skin, but it can also be due to a loss of facial volume. Therefore, a truly youthful look requires that the skin is lifted, but also that certain areas of the face are filled out as well. The Fat Transfer provides subtle but vibrant changes that can restore the glow of your youth.

Which areas of the face are treated by the fat transfer?

Believe it or not, we can treat your entire face with Fat Transfer. After you consult with us and indicate any areas that are of particular interest to you, you will find that a fat transfer can do wonders for basically every area of your face. The most common areas that are treated are around the mouth, jowls, and the front of the jaw. However, we can also use the procedure to reinvigorate deflated lips. If your eyes are your concern, we can absolutely apply fat injections to the areas surrounding them, to give you a rested look free from crow’s feet.

Where does the fat come from?

The fat used for the injections is harvested from the softest parts of our bodies, usually the belly, hips, or thighs. Because we only need small amounts of fat to get great results on your face, the opening created to draw it out will be smaller than the head of a needle, and will not require stitches or any sort of after care.

After the fat is harvested, it will be sterilized and purified, and separated from any excess fluids. Then, after we’ve anesthetized the target areas, we will reinsert the fat into your face a little bit at a time. And voila! You’ll notice the difference right away.

Want to enhance your beauty without synthetics?

Fat Transfer is a wonderful procedure especially for those who want to fill out deflated skin and minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. It’s also great in combination with other cosmetic procedures, such as liposuction or breast augmentation.
