Facial Fat Transfer and all of our procedures are safely performed under local anesthesia in the comfort and convenience of our Center. We have performed literally thousands over the past decade using this refined technique. Our passion is providing natural & long lasting results. That is TLC℠.
As we age, we lose volume in our face. Facial thinning and volume loss can cause a hollow, depressed, and unhealthy appearance. This problem is very common in aging women. The cheeks and middle of the face are usually the most effected areas. Facial fat transfer Las Vegas is a simple, effective, and comfortable procedure. We take excess fat from one area of your body that has extra to spare (i.e. the lower belly or thighs), and use this tissue as your own natural facial filler to help restore volume. The final result is marked improvement in the folds, depressions, and unpleasant contours of one’s face.
The area that will donate the fat is first numbed with local anesthesia. Next, a very tiny incision is made in this area to allow for the careful removal of excess fat with a small cannula (similar to a thin straw). This incision only requires one single stitch to close it. The harvested fat is then spun in a machine to separate the different components and purify the fat. The facial areas to be treated with fat are also given local anesthesia prior to receiving the purified fat. To place the fat, a even smaller cannula is used to enter the skin through tiny opening. The fat is carefully injected, contoured, and confirmed to be even. No stitches are required!
Fat can be placed basically in almost any area of the face, but it’s most commonly used to fill out the cheek mounds, cheek hollows (depressions in the midface under the actual cheeks), infra-orbital rims (under the eyes to fill out the tear troughs), naso-labial folds, lips, and marionette lines. Fat is very appealing to use because it’s easily accepted by your own body. Fat Transfer can give results that last for many years.
Many patients choose to have Facial Fat Transfer added to their treatment plan simply to enjoy a more permanent result (i.e. not having the need for repeated filler injections). It often saves money and time down the road since all artificial fillers need to be continually repeated to maintain your results. On average, 25-30% of our clients have this procedure added to their TLC Lift. Dr. Lanfranchi always places more fat than initially needed since it is normal for some of the transferred fat to dissolve. Having performed hundreds of Fat Transfer procedures has allowed Dr. Lanfranchi to refine our client’s results and outcomes.
