Facial Fat Injections
Autologous fat injection can be an excellent option for minimizing the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines, especially around the eyes, mouth, and on the cheeks. This innovative technique can be performed as a stand-alone surgical treatment, or it can be combined with other procedures, such as facelift, brow lift, or blepharoplasty. Facial fat injections use the patient’s own fat to fill out or fill in areas of the face, and unlike other injectables, the results are generally permanent.
In addition to adding volume lost during the aging process, fat injections can help reduce signs of scarring and other evidence of injury. Furthermore, this treatment has no risk of causing an allergic reaction since the fat is taken directly from the patient.
During the treatment process, Dr. Bucky will use a local anesthetic to increase your comfort as fat is removed other areas of the body. To access large amounts of fat, he may utilize a liposuction technique in a fat-rich area of the body, such as the thighs. As part of a separate procedure, Dr. Bucky will then inject the cleaned, prepared fat into targeted areas of the face during a process that may take only a few minutes, depending on your needs. Discomfort is generally minimal, and most patients require nothing more than an over-the-counter painkiller following treatment.
