One aspect of the aging process is the loss of fatty tissue in facial areas such as the cheeks, lips, and lower eyelids. This can cause your fact to appear sunken or gaunt. One of the most natural and effective ways to treat this is with fat transfer. Beautiful skin that looks years younger can be yours with fat transfer treatments by Murrieta Facial Plastic Surgery which proudly serves Murrieta and the greater Temecula area.

How does fat transfer work?

The fat transfer procedure involves implanting your own excess fat into areas that need extra volume, such as the lips or cheeks. Dr. Banthia will take fat from the donor area (typically the abdomen, thighs or buttocks), and introduce it to treatment areas that have lost volume. Fat transfer is a safe, natural, non-allergic procedure used to augment lips, fill facial folds, and restore facial volume giving you a more youthful appearance. Use of your own tissue offers the benefit of natural-looking results with a decreased risk of rejection. The procedure generally takes a few hours, and you should be able to return to normal activities quickly.

What benefits can I expect from fat transfer?

Fat transfer at Murrieta Facial Plastic Surgery may be right for you if you want to correct deep facial creases, bags under your eyes, hollow cheeks, and/or sunken temples.  There are many reports suggesting fat has stem cell properties — while more research needs to be done in this area, many consider fat grafting a type of ‘stem cell’ facelift.

Am I a good candidate for fat transfer?

Fat transfer is a good option for you if:
• You are a non-smoker and are physically healthy.
• You have a positive outlook and specific, but realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance.
