Dr. Loomis began studying stem cells from fat in his cell culture lab in 2005. This helped him develop greater reliability with his micro micro fat grafts. He finds his grafts to have a survial rate of 85% -90%, which he feels makes the final contour more predictable. In general, the success of fat grafting is very dependent on the expertise of the surgeon.

Before and After

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 are usually done under local anesthesia in our office.
