Facial Fat Grafts
Advanced Fat Grafting Techniques have made fat transfer an attractive option for facial Plastic Surgery, with treatment of dark circles under the eyes, filling of cheek hollows and other signs of aging.
Fat Grafts to the Face: New York Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Loomis gained experience studying stem cells from fat in his cell culture lab, he has refined his technique of fat grafting using micro fat grafts which have had greater versatility and reliability. We have found our micro fat grafts to have a survial rate of 85% -90% or more. Without this high survival rate, the final contour can be hard to control, and there can be problems with lumps or calcifications. In the past, fat grafts were felt to have only a 50% survival rate or less. Even today, there are good plastic surgeons who report survival rates of only 50% or less with their fat grafts. Fat grafting is very technique dependent, and every surgeon has a slightly different technique. A "liquid facelift," a technique using injectables to rejuvenate a face, can also be done with your own fat. Fat is a normal part of youthful lips, eyes and faces, and as we age, that fat atrophies, so it makes sense to replace fat loss with fat. The area below the eyes becomes more skelentonized, generally producing a dark groove or circle, and cheeks can become sunken in. Lip fat begins to decrease causing a loss of projection and fullness. Fat grafts can fill and rejuvenate these areas and is usually done under local anesthesia in the Middletown, New York office. The patient below underwent micro fat grafts to the lower lid grooves by Dr. Loomis in the office under local anesthesia (not a guarantee of results).
