While dermal fillers are an excellent option for adding volume to certain areas of the face, some individuals prefer a more permanent and natural solution.
Facial fat grafting procedure details
The first step of facial fat transfer in the Bay Area is liposuction, which may be performed under either local or general anesthesia, depending on how much fat will be needed. Liposuction requires small incisions near the donor site, and these incisions heal well with barely visible scarring. Once the appropriate amount of fat has been removed from the donor site, it will be purified using a centrifuge and placed within a syringe so that it can be injected. The liposuction incisions will be sutured and dressed. Dr. Hessler will then administer the injections into the areas of the face that need volume.
