At Nuance Cosmetic Surgery, we’re proud to offer fat injections to patients in Sacramento, CA and the surrounding areas who are seeking to enhance and restore facial fullness. We use fat injections for a variety of cosmetic purposes, including acne scarring, skin depressions, thin lips, frown lines and deformities caused by trauma or surgery.
Using Body Fat
We can use specialized techniques to extract fat from the patient’s own body. After being purified, the fat is then used as a filler for adding facial volume, treating contour deformities and reducing various signs of aging, including fine lines.
What to Expect
A fat injection procedure is considered an outpatient surgery. Recovery typically takes up to three weeks. The survival of the injected fat cannot be predicted. Since we cannot guarantee what amount of fat will survive, you may need multiple injections to get the desired results. Otherwise, patience is required because it takes some time to see the final results.
Advantages Over Dermal Fillers
While fat injections can produce great results, there are several other alternative procedures. For example, many people opt for dermal fillers in order to fill in lines and reduce acne scarring. However, oftentimes, fat injections provide more natural-looking results, and they also allow the patient to get rid of fat in an area of the body where there is excess.
Here at Nuance Cosmetic Surgery, we are proud to offer various methods of facial rejuvenation, including fat injections, dermal fillers, facelifts, and more. During your initial consultation, our plastic surgeon and staff can conduct a physical examination and evaluate your medical history to recommend the best procedure for you.
