What is Fat Injections?

As we grow older, the underlying muscles that keep our faces looking youthful and plumped up begin to break down. This leaves our faces with creases and other conditions that are often associated with aging. There are also other factors such as smiling, squinting, and other facial movements that contribute to these conditions. There are surgical procedures that can help improve upon these conditions. However for those that want to enhance their facial appearance without surgery, fat injections offers a minimally-invasive solution.

This procedure involves removing fat cells from areas of one’s body, including the abdomen, thighs, and others, then injecting this fat into the person’s facial area. Fat injections can improve upon various conditions associated with aging, including laugh lines, forehead wrinkles, sunken cheeks and others. Fat injections can also be used to enhance the lips. By injecting fat into the facial areas, it can leave the person with a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance. Unlike surgical procedures, this new appearance resulting from fat injections is temporary. Depending on the patient, the results disappear within 3-6 months. Multiple visits may be necessary in order to maintain desired results. Plus unlike Collagen injections, fat injections do not require a skin test. Allergic reaction is not a factor since the fat is harvested from the patient’s own body.
