Fat Reinjection l Fat Grafting -Use your own natural donor fat to plump up facial creases, lips, back of hands and buttocks!
Human fat, harvested from your own body, can be reinjected to enhance facial fullness, fill deep creases and to build up shallow contours. Dr. Jervis uses the ‘Coleman’ technique for gentle extraction and reinjection.
Fat reinjection or facial fat sculpting, can restore attractive contours to your cheeks, chin, & deep wrinkles, back of hands, depressed scars & add volume to your lips longer than hyaluronic acid fillers.
Autologous Fat Transfer
Autologous fat transfer is a procedure in which a patient’s own body fat is used to plump up sunken areas of the face or to add volume where desired. The word “autologous” simply refers to the use of one’s own tissues or fat.
- Gentle liposuction of some excess fat (such as that found in the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks)
- Fat cells are ‘spun down’ and condensed.
- Fat cells are reinjected into the desired areas.
Little downtime, great results!
Most of us have enough fat to spare for injection under deep facial creases. Fat grafting can be a permanent solution. We keep getting more sophisticated devices for this procedure, the latest being an injection pistol which allows very precise placement of fat in measured amounts while extracting the injection cannula after each small injection. We are also able to centrifuge the aspirated fat to remove anything other than pure fat before transferring it to our injection device. These procedures are usually done under local anesthesia for your comfort.
