Fat Transfer Newark
Facial fat transfer, also known as fat grating, is an excellent way to rejuvenate the aging face in a natural fashion. Both men and women looking for an effective option for facial rejuvenation can benefit from fat grafting offered by the Advanced Plastic Surgery Center of Newark.
The Benefits of Fat Transfer
Fat Transfer treatments are performed without incisions and virtually no downtime, and the results are a permanent alternative to yearly filler injections. Because the procedure uses your own fat, there is no risk of allergic reaction. Fat Transfer can be used to treat issues like sagging cheeks, jowls, sunken under eyes, lip volume loss, and other common signs of facial aging.
- Volume restoration to the face
- More permanent solution to yearly filler sessions
- Minimal downtime
The Fat Transfer Procedure
The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis in our office under mild sedation. It is done by removing fat from one area of the body that contains excess fat, known as the donor sight, and injecting it into another for volume restoration and tissue imperfections.
Gentle liposuction is performed in the donor sight, such as the abdomen, inner thighs or love handles. The fat is then prepared and re-injected in areas that need filling/volume restoration. The procedure itself usually only requires one hour.
Fat Transfer Recovery
Patients can expect to experience some bruising and swelling during the first week or two of the recovery process. Any pain or discomfort can be managed with over the counter medication. On average, patients can resume most of their normal activities after around one week.
Results from a fat transfer procedure are permanent and reveal a more youthful and refreshed look. Fat transfer procedures can be combined with other procedures including Botox cosmetic, dermal fillers, and even facelift surgery.
Fat Grafting Cost
The cost of your fat transfer procedure can vary depending on multiple factors. Financing options are available. Our team can answer any question you may have about pricing, payment options, and financing during your consultation.
