Rediscover Your Youthful Glow

Fat injection treatments are predominantly used to fill in sunken cheeks, laugh lines, and depressed areas or indentations on the face or body.

Often combined with other surgical procedures such as liposuction, fat transfer procedures are a way to take advantage of time under anesthesia to achieve a more complete result.

At CosmetiCare in Newport Beach, facial liposuction with fat transfer to improve hollows, and areas where collagen has depleted over the years is the most commonly requested treatment. To learn more, reach out to our Orange County location and speak with a member of our team to set up your initial consultation and get started on the road to loving the way you look.

Three Steps to Expert Rejuvenation with Fat Transfer

Fat injection is a surgical procedure and is performed under general anesthesia. Collagen, Restylane®, and other injectable fillers are also available to fill fine lines and wrinkles, enhance lips, and smooth out depressed areas of the face.

Step One

Liposuction is used to harvest unwanted fat from the patient’s thighs, abdomen or lower back area.

Step Two

The surgeon sterilizes the fat cells, purifying and preparing them for injection.

Step Three

The fat is carefully injected into the areas of your face you’d like to add volume to in small amounts until the ideal look is achieved.

How Will I Look & Feel After the Fat Transfer?

  • Because fat has a certain rate of absorption once injected, your surgeon will over-fill the area to allow for this absorption rate over the next several weeks. 
  • The areas injected will appear very puffy and “fat” and you will have bruising, swelling, or redness in the donor site as well as the injected areas treated.
  • Although you may return to most activities immediately, if a large area was treated, it is advised to restrict activity for a short time.
  • Most patients feel good enough to resume normal activities right away after their fat transfer in Newport Beach. However, you will be quite swollen. Those who don’t want others to know of their procedure may choose to wait a few days before going out into public.
  • It is recommended that you avoid sun exposure until redness and bruising subside, usually after 48 hours.

Enjoying Your Fat Transfer Results

Fat injection results are significantly different for each patient. Some patients will have more absorption than others, and many have had results that last up to one year or more. Secondary injections are not uncommon and may be necessary to obtain the result you’re looking to achieve.
