Naturally enhance your face with fat grafting or lipofilling procedures in Nashville, Tennessee
Fat transfer or fat grafting is a safe and popular procedure to naturally renew your face to its youthful shape. Fat transfer is used to fill in sunken cheeks, grooves and hollows in the face running from the nose to the corner of the mouth and below the lower eyelids. Fat grafting is also used to plump up thin lips and enhance the shape of your lips.
Fat transfer is a natural, minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves removing excess fat from an area of your body and transferring it to the targeted areas of the face to restore loss volume.
If you are looking to enhance your facial appearance and do not want to use dermal fillers, fat grafting may be an excellent natural alternative. To learn more about how fat grafting can restore lost facial volume, schedule a confidential consultation with Dr. Mark Clymer.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR FACIAL FAT TRANSFER?
You may be a candidate for fat transfer if:
- You want to fill in facial grooves and hollows without using dermal fillers.
- You are interested in longer-lasting and natural-looking results by using your own body’s excess fat.
- You want to enhance your lips.
HOW IS FAT TRANSFER PERFORMED?
Fat transfer is performed by the patient initially undergoing liposuction to remove the desired amount of fat from select areas of the body. Typically, patients have the unwanted fat removed from the hips, thighs or abdomen. The next step is to prepare the fat for injection into the lines, hollows and depression of the face. The fat is skillfully injected by Dr. Clymer through very fine cannulas.
In some cases, facial implants may also be recommended to optimize results.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT AFTER YOUR FAT TRANSFER PROCEDURE?
Dr. Clymer advises patients that recovery varies from patient to patient, but most patients are able to return to work or their activities within a week.* This time period allows for the initial swelling to subside.
