Facial Fat Transfer | Newport Beach, CA
Diminishing facial volume is a form of aging that shows in our faces and can effect person’s self-confidence. If you’re looking for an effective technique for adding fullness to your face, Dr. Zarrabi uses fat transfer to achieves natural and lasting results.
What is fat transfer?
Facial aging is caused by the descent and disappearance of fat and muscle. Fat transfer is the reversal of aging through a process that uses a patient’s own fat from one area of the body to place it in the cheeks, around the eye lids and specific areas of the face.
The Benefits of Fat Transfer
The most popular benefit of fat transfer is that we use your own tissue to volumize the face. The other high-ranking advantage is that the transferred fat is permanent. When it comes to the benefits fat transfer has on your looks, the list is all-encompassing:
- Eliminates circles under your eyes
- Fills in under-eye creases
- Corrects sunken in look around your eyes and temple region
- Helps correct crow’s feet
- Recreates full, high cheeks
The Procedure – What to Expect
Dr. Zarrabi begins by extracting excess fat cells from your belly, thighs with a thin cannula. Next, he purifies the donor fat and refines it before injecting it into the target facial areas. This is relatively a short procedure, and you will be under local anesthesia.
