How is facial fat transfer performed?
The first step of a facial fat transfer is the selection of a donor site and the extraction of fat cells. Dr. Mesa will discuss with you which area of your body is best suited for fat removal through minimally invasive liposuction. Once the fat cells are harvested with gentle lipo, they are processed and purified to prepare them for use. Dr. Mesa will then use a specially designed metal tube called a cannula to inject the healthy fat cells into the targeted areas of your face. Once the injections are complete, you are free to return home for a quick recovery period.
