A fat transfer can be used to add volume back to an area where it has been lost, most typically the face. To complete the transfer, some of your own fat will be harvested via liposuction using a very small hole. Generally, around 120-150 cc of fat is needed. Once extracted, the fat is then processed and mixed with stem cells and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which can increase the procedure’s longevity by up to 40%. So instead of lasting just three years, the results could endure for five or six years. After processing, the fat is injected into the area where you are experiencing volume loss. Following the procedure, you will experience bruising and swelling for a couple of weeks.
Using a fat transfer, you have the ability to fully revolumize your face using your own tissue, and the results can last up to six years if the fat is mixed with your stem cells. To learn more about this revolutionary procedure, contact us today at 417-447-7777 or schedule a free consultation today.
