How fat injections can be used to enhance facial appearance

There are many options available to our patients in terms of treating fine lines and wrinkles associated with the natural aging process. Dr. Sanjay Lalla, a personal plastic surgeon with board-certification, provides patients in the area with solutions that can be used to enhance their appearance. With skin laxity that contributes to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, patients enjoy knowing they have options available to them, including fat injections.

What are fat injections?

Fat injections, sometimes referred to as fat transfers, require the doctor to remove fat from certain areas of the body, purify it, and then reinjected it back into the patient’s face to treat fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and creases. Fat transfers are a reliable option for many of our patients who are interested in a treatment that eliminates the risk of allergic reactions. Fat transfers have been a safe and reliable option for patients who might otherwise have considered injections such as neuromodulators, collagen stimulators, or dermal fillers.

Who is a candidate?

Most patients who have mild to moderate creases and folds on the face are candidates for fat transfers and injections. During a consultation appointment with Dr. Sanjay Lalla, patients can discuss their desired results and find out if the fat transfer process will help them achieve them. Patients are also evaluated to determine if they are in good overall health and have wrinkles and folds that can be effectively treated in this manner. Patients with more severe signs of aging may still be better suited for more effective procedures such as a surgical facelift.

How much do fat injections cost?

The amount of fat removed and replaced for the patient will determine the final cost. We encourage patients to book an appointment to get a more accurate quote for treatment. Fat transfers are definitely more affordable than many other invasive procedures, making them a smart choice for patients on a budget who still seek noticeable improvements.
