Recycle Your Own Fat!

Lipo Fat Grafting Harvest

Recycle Your Own Fat!

Ever dreamed of moving extra fat to another area of your body needing some plumping? Well now we can, with a relatively new procedure called “Natural Fat Grafting.” The technique I use basically employs specialized liposuction to remove and harvest unwanted fat in one area, then I artistically inject and sculpt the adipose stem cells into another area after a quick spin, like seen in our photo.

Fat grafting or sometimes called Lipo-fat transfer can be an effective anti-aging alternative without the use of artificial chemical fillers for facial rejuvenation and correcting lip wrinkles or refreshing and plumping lips. When using autologous (your own) fat for increasing or re-shaping breasts and correcting uneven breasts, more than one session is sometimes needed. However, fat injections are particularly helpful to minimize a small divot left from a biopsy or lumpectomy during a single office visit. While natural fat grafting is not the answer for weight loss, it has shown to be safe and effective in targeting localized unwanted fat and offers patients another option in the toolbox of elective cosmetic surgery.

More Youthful Lips: Not Fish Lips

April 24th, 2017

Trout Pout Lips

Is it possible to get fuller lips without ending up with fish lips? As we age, the fat layer beneath our skin diminishes which causes the appearance of aging and facial wrinkles. This process also happens to our lips. For the past decade, artificial fillers became the go-to fix to plump up an aging face, buying time before a surgical facelift was needed. When at first, a few injections did the trick, soon to follow was the over-injected, the over-plumped unfortunate cartoon face look. I think we’ve all seen it and I am not a fan. Enter a new technique to restore that fat layer, and restore your youthful look using your own fat. Yes, plumper lips, creating a more youthful appearance is quite possible without resulting in the famous Hollywood “Trout Pout.”

Lipo fat transfer is an ideal clinic-based solution for facial fat loss, such as lip wrinkles or thinning lips, the hallows under your eyes and more. Liposuction fat is first removed from selected areas, next your own fat is transferred and sculpted with facial injections. Fat has naturally high concentrations of stromal cells, and it is believed that these somatic stem cells help rejuvenate and plum the overlying skin.

Lipo fat grafting is a natural alternative to artificial fillers and can be an effective choice offering a quick recovery. Now plumper lips, creating a more youthful appearance is quite possible to avoid without resulting in the famous Hollywood “Trout Pout.” A glance at your plastic surgeon’s Before/After photos offers a reliable evaluation of what to expect.
