Fat transfer fills facial features with a patient’s own fat. Basically, fat transfer involves suctioning out a small amount of fat from the abdomen, thighs, flank or back and moving this fat into the facial areas such as laugh lines, frown lines, lips and cheeks. Because the fat comes from your own body, you cannot develop an allergic reaction. Fat transfer to the face is a safe procedure designed to re-contour the face and provide definition to cheeks, chin, lips and lower eyes. We perform this procedure alone or in conjunction with our other facial rejuvination procedures. When it comes to facial volume loss, micro fat transfer is the treatment of choice. A minor liposuction technique is used to prepare the fat for transfer. The fat is then injected in the desired portion of the face, using small parcels of fat that are strategically layered to maximize appearance and graft survival for optimal aesthetic outcome. Autologous tissue is readily available, long-lasting, natural-feeling and will not cause adverse reactions.
Dr. Gavrila feels that fat transfer is a very advantageous approach to facial rejuvination and leads to permanent improved changes in facial contour.

Dr. Gavrila believes that a youthful appearance and beauty can be highlighted at any age. His conservative approach will have you looking and feeling younger but won’t leave you with that ‘fake’ ‘plastic-like’ look most patients are often concerned with.
