Much like dermal fillers, fat transfers are used to correct volume loss and deep wrinkles in the face. Clients can achieve incredible, youthful plumpness in the lips, cheeks and lower eyelids (one area that is limited for other fillers) using this safe and highly effective treatment.
Many clients choose fat transfers over dermal fillers because fat transfers do not require sourcing materials from outside the body. Dr. Rodgers will typically harvest fat from the abdomen and carefully re-inject it into the face. This treatment is also helpful in resurfacing the skin to improve texture and tone and is routinely used with face and neck lifts or other facial procedures. Fat transfers can last from 6 months to several years, and subsequent treatments can last even longer.
