What is a Facial Fat Transfer?
Facial fat transfer consists of injecting the patient's own adipose tissue into the face to attenuate thick expression lines and improve the skin quality.
Since the injectable filler is fat from the same patient, the body manages to permanently incorporate it into the receptor areas.
In general, the adipose tissue harvest is done in the abdomen or thighs and the refined fat tissue is infiltrated in the selected areas to achieve the desired result.
