As opposed to simply addressing specific fine lines, wrinkles or facial folds, this procedure addresses the whole face, producing dramatic yet natural-looking results. To eliminate age related facial hollowness, unwanted fat is eliminated from one area of the body using a local anesthetic and is then injected into areas of the face that have lost volume, typically around the eyes, temples, mouth, cheeks and jawline. This procedure can often delay surgical procedures like facelifts, and results are most often longer-lasting than other fillers.
Dr. Lisa Donofrio of The Savin Center is one of the premier facial fat transfer experts in the world performing over 7,000 fat transfer procedures. “Fat Grafting results are notoriously technique dependent,” says Dr. Donofrio. “I have evolved the procedure I currently use over the last 15 years. In essence this technique is ‘the best of the best.”
