Fat Transfer to Cheeks
Was this photo helpful?
Autologous (from your own body) fat transfer is another effective technique for restoring a more youthful, 3-dimensional look to the face. Fat transplantation has developed into what many consider the ideal soft tissue filler. Replacing volume is integral to restoring a youthful look to the face. As the face ages, the natural fat pads begin to sag and shrink. This often results in a hollow, sunken appearance. Fat loss is mostly noticed around the eyes and within the cheeks. Patients often notice deep circles and bags under their eyes as the natural cheek fat shrinks and sags. By replacing the fat, these processes can be reversed.
