4 Benefits of Fat Transfer for More Vibrant Skin

Historically, people have turned to dermal fillers to replenish the facial volume they lose over the years. These cosmetic injectables can fill thinning lips, smooth wrinkles, and leave you with younger-looking skin.

But there’s another option as well. If you want these rejuvenating effects without introducing foreign substances to your body, it’s time to ask Nikunj Patel, MD, FACC, about fat transfer. At Neosculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center, he offers liposuction — including the virtually painless, minimal-downtime Giggle Lipo — to take fat from areas where you have it in excess. Then, he transfers that fat where you need it, giving you vibrant, rejuvenated skin. 

Here are some of the benefits of fat transfer. 

#1: Reduced wrinkles

By adding fat to areas where you’ve lost facial volume, Dr. Patel can smooth wrinkles and facial folds. This allows him to reduce the appearance of:

He can also use fat transfer to restore the youthful contours to your face, replenishing volume in your cheeks and restoring your jawline. Ultimately, with fat transfer, Dr. Patel can give you younger-looking skin. 

#2: More youthful-looking hands

Fat transfer isn’t just effective for your face. Dr. Patel can also use it to rejuvenate the skin on the backs of your hands. 

Fat transfer for aging hands is increasingly popular because it gives you a natural-looking way to roll back the years. If you’ve noticed that the skin on your hands is looking thin and aged, ask Dr. Patel about fat transfer for your hands. 

#3: Plumper lips

Additionally, Dr. Patel can fill thinning lips with a fat transfer. As your lips get thinner through the years, you can undo that change — and get a more vibrant overall appearance — with this long-lasting lip-plumping option. 

#4: Long-lasting results 

The results from dermal fillers can last as long as a couple of years. But fat transfer results can last much longer. Your body will absorb some of the fat after Dr. Patel transfers it but, generally, you can expect about 50% of the fat to survive. At that point, the fat should live forever in the location Dr. Patel placed it. 

Dr. Patel also offers fat transfer for the breasts and buttocks. 

Fat transfer gives you a way to get younger-looking, more vibrant skin with fat from your own body. To further explore this skin rejuvenating option, call Neosculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center or request your appointment online today.
