What Fat Transfer and Injections?

Believe or not, you can use fat from one area of your body to enhance another area, and the process is also a safe and effective option for anti-aging and facial enhancement. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David F. Klein, specializes in fat transfer and injections for men and women.

Benefits of Fat Transfer and Injections

Using your own fat to soften signs of aging and enhance your facial features eliminates risks that are associated with some dermal fillers and injectables. Some men and women have allergic reactions to the active ingredients in dermal fillers while others prefer to not use synthetic or foreign substances to look younger. Fat transfer and injections remove these concerns while providing the same benefits of dermal fillers, such as:

  • Minimally-invasive procedure
  • Little to no downtime
  • Immediate, long-lasting and natural results

Who is the Ideal Candidate for Fat Transfer and Injections?

The primary consideration for fat transfer and injections is whether or not you have adequate fat on your body for the harvesting process. Dr. Klein will determine this and other factors during your consultation.

What Do I Need to Do Before Fat Transfer and Injections?

Fat transfer and injections are considered generally safe, but you should always have a qualified plastic surgeon perform these types of procedures. Meet with Dr. Klein for a consultation to find out if the procedure is right for you.

How Long Does It Take to Perform Fat Transfer and Injections?

Fat transfer and injections is a two-step procedure. First, the fat is harvested via liposuction from a pre-determined area of your body. This step takes the longest. Once the fat is harvested, it is processed and purified. Dr. Klein then injects the fat into the treatment area to soften lines and wrinkles and/or enhance your facial features.

What to Expect After Fat Transfer and Injections

We will explain what to expect during your aftercare before you leave our practice. You may want to have someone drive you home and stay with you for the first 24 hours.

Will I Have Scars After Getting Fat Transfer and Injections?

The liposuction that is used to extract the fat does cause very minimal scars.

When Will I See the Results?

You will see improvement in your appearance right after the procedure. The tissues will need to heal completely before you see full results. This may take a week or longer.

How Long Will the Results of Fat Transfer and Injections Last?

The results of a fat transfer and injections is considered long-lasting, but you may lose some of the fat cells with time.

How Much Does Fat Transfer and Injections Cost in Charlotte?
