Procedure Details

The patient’s own fat is collected with needles from a distant donor area and re-injected using the micro fat techniques to the hollow or deficient area. The small filaments or toothpicks of fat swell up an area to correct the depression or provide augmentation. Unlike fat grafting techniques in the past, these small filaments are much more likely to pick up a blood supply, avoid resorption or melting away. This provides long-term correction. Micro fat and Artecoll® are often combined and layered for maximum benefit. All injectables are outpatient procedures.

  • Fat transfer may require sedation plus local anesthesia if larger amounts of fat are to be collected. Small amounts of fat can be collected and transferred under local anesthesia.
  • Deep grooves of the frown lines, smile lines and marionette lines can be smoothed with micro fat. Cheeks, chins and lips can be beautifully and naturally augmented with fat transplantation.
