Fat Transfer to the Face (FAMI)
Learn More About Fat Transfer Available In Fort Myers & Naples
Fat Transfer or Fat grafting is a stitch-free, virtually pain-free procedure that transfers fat from areas of the body where you have excess fat, like the abdomen or outer thigh. It is then injected into areas of your body that may be lacking volume, such as your face, hands and breasts. This procedure is safe and long lasting, does not require full anesthesia and produces natural-looking results.
You Can Consider Fat Transfer When:
• You have facial areas that appear sunken and have lost volume
• You desire more permanent correction than is provided by temporary fillers
• You desire a more cost-effective filler
• You wish to improve your body contour, revise scars, fill depressions and rejuvenate your hands and face
• For use in breast reconstruction, to fill in contour irregularities or hide obvious signs of breast implants, to heal signs of radiation
Am I A Good Candidate For A Fat Transfer?
The purpose of fat grafting is to augment or fill in volume-deficient areas. Commonly treated areas include the hands, face (including the lips), depressions in the skin (following liposuction and scarring) and the breast and buttock (for augmentation). Of course, you must have donor sites from which fat can be taken.
Facial fat transfer: If you have signs of facial aging, such as laugh lines, smile lines, and crow’s-feet, fat can be removed from your abdomen, thighs, or other areas and be injected into your face. Acne scars and sunken areas of the face, temples, lips, and cheeks can also be filled in. Unlike artificial fillers, the fat lasts for years.
Breast enhancement: If you desire a moderate increase in breast size, you are a good candidate for fat grafting to the breast.
Breast asymmetry: If you are bothered by uneven breasts, Fat Transfer is the natural way to achieve a more symmetrical look.
Hand rejuvenation with fat grafting: Fat grafting in the hands is effective for adding volume, smoothing out wrinkled areas, covering underlying vessels and tendons and improving the quality of your skin over time. Results can last for many years.
If you are in good health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for these procedures.
