Your Consultation With Dr. Nima
Dr. Nima will evaluate your issues during your initial consultation and discuss your desired results. He will make sure to explore the benefits and limitations of a fat transfer with you (for example, fat is not effective for filling fine lines or wrinkles, which are better treated with other Injectable Fillers). Before proceeding, we will recommend you meet with our aesthetician to discuss a pre-procedure skin care regimen, including products and treatments to get your skin into optimal condition. Starting off with healthy glowing skin will enhance your result.
During a facial fat transfer, fat is first harvested from another area of the body, such as the abdomen, hips or buttocks, through a gentle suctioning technique. Using a small cannula (tube), the fat is carefully and precisely injected into the face. This outpatient procedure usually requires only a local anesthetic or IV sedation, and there are no dressings or drains. Although not a “weight reduction” procedure, we do promise an “age reduction” result!
