Fat Transfer to Hands & Face
As we age, many people will begin to lose the fat in the face and hands. This results in a sunken, hollow and therefore older appearance to the face. A fat transfer can help to restore the lost volume and rejuvenate the face and hands.

As we age, many people lose fat in their face and hands. The loss of fat creates a hollow, sunken look and will accentuate wrinkling. One of the best ways to provide additional volume to the face and hands is with a fat transfer.
In a fat transfer procedure, fat is harvested from elsewhere on the body (abdomen, hips, flank) with a very gentle liposuction technique. The fat is then processed and injected with a cannula into the areas that need additional volume. About 50% of transferred fat usually survives. Because of this, we will overcorrect initially expecting the volume to decrease over the first 2-3 weeks.
In addition to restoring volume, the fat is loaded with stem cells which will help to repopulate the skin. This will help to improve the texture and lustre of aging skin.
Fat transfers are done in our Miami office with local or local sedation anesthesia. Bruising and discomfort are minimal. Because we are using your own fat, you can not have an allergic reaction to it. The results usually last for many years.
