Fat Transfer is extremely effective and the results are permanent. Dr. Max performs this procedure alone or in conjunction with other procedures and treatments such as Smartlipo, Juvéderm and Artefill.
When dealing with unwanted lines and wrinkles, fat transfer is an excellent option. A gentle liposuction technique is used to transfer fat, which is also termed as fat grafting. The fat that is harvested is injected into the desired portion of the face, using a micro injection technique, allowing extremely small parcels of fat to be placed into multiple layers of the face. This maximizes potential survival of fat cells and allows for the optimal aesthetic outcome.

Fat transfer is most commonly done around the hollows and grooves of the lower eyelid region and cheeks, the mouth and the jaw line. It can provide the entire face a natural rejuvenation.
Fat transfer is most commonly performed under local anesthesia with a light oral sedation, and patients go home the same day with little discomfort and essentially no downtime. Bruising is variable.
In most cases, 40-60% of transferred fat persists permanently. The long-term efficacy of transferred fat has been documented in numerous studies, however, results vary from patient to patient.
Other than a small incision at the fat harvesting site, no incisions are made in the face. The most common post procedure issues are minimal swelling and bruising, which typically clears up in a few days. Patients usually return to normal activity within a week. The more regions of the face that are treated, the more time it takes for the swelling to settle.
