WHAT IS FAT TRANSFER?
Over time, the face gradually losses volume which can result in fine lines, wrinkles and a prematurely aged look. Fat transfer uses fat cells from the patient’s body to reverse this effect.
The benefits of fat transfer include:
- Structural support to soft tissue
- Restores cheek contours
- Minimizes creases and hollowness around the eyes
