Facial Fat Grafting Miami, FL (Fat Transfer)
As we age, our facial tissues lose their stores of collagen and fat that provide smooth skin and youthful volume. Over time, the fat loss can cause you to develop deep facial wrinkles or a gaunt facial appearance. While there are synthetic fillers available to restore your youthful complexion, some patients don’t qualify as candidates due to allergies or skin sensitivity, and these fillers only offer a temporary solution. The fat transfer procedure is the ideal facial rejuvenation procedure for many women and men because it restores facial volume with your own body’s fat and enhances the results of facial rejuvenation surgery. If you live in Miami, FL contact us to schedule a consultation.

People considering fat transfer should be in good health and have realistic expectations about their results. Fat transfer for facial rejuvenation is designed to treat volume loss and wrinkles; it does not treat facial sagging.

You may not qualify for fat transfer if you don’t have adequate stores of excess fat for grafting.

One of the few downsides of fat transfer is the more extensive recovery period. Dermal fillers may result in some bruising and swelling that lasts several days, but patients can immediately resume their regular activities after treatment. However, many patients feel that the extensive recovery associated with fat transfer is worth the years of correction that dermal fillers cannot achieve.
