Interested in facial rejuvenation with an injectable filler that looks and feels natural? Consider fat transfer. Fat transfer is a process involving injections of fat cells harvested from the patient’s body, and it all begins with minor liposuction.
Liposuction, a procedure used to remove and harvest excess fat cells, requires anesthesia. In the case of fat transfer, only local anesthesia will typically be necessary. A small incision is then created to give the plastic surgeon access to the underlying fatty tissues. Following this, medical suction is used to carefully harvest fat cells for the injection process.
