Fat Repositioning and Removal

Like all the facial soft tissues, the fat pads in the face descend and diminish as we age, which results in facial hollows in the cheeks and wrinkles around the mouth. These areas can be filled by elevating and repositioning the fat pads and adding supplemental fat from the abdomen if needed. Alternatively, there can be an accumulation of fat that develops under the chin as we age, which can be eliminated with micro-liposuction. A combination of strategic fat grafting and targeted liposuction is used to create a younger and more balanced appearance.
