Fat Transfer and Injections in Cary and Fayetteville, NC

At Fayetteville Plastic Surgery & Cape Fear Aesthetics, we offer this and other injectable treatments to the residents of Cape Fear, Sanford, Lumberton, Cary and the neighboring North Carolina areas.
What Are Fat Transfer and Injections?
Fat transfer and injections are similar to dermal filler and injectable treatments, except that they use fat collected from the patient’s own body to increase volume in the face. Also called fat grafting, this treatment can be used to achieve a safe and natural boost in volume that can diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles. By using purified body fat instead of formulated gels, patients can eliminate any risk of side effects that comes from foreign substances being injected into the body.
How Are Fat Transfer and Injections Performed?
Fat transfer and injections start with harvesting fat from areas including the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs. This will be done using liposuction, which is performed with the aid of anesthesia to ensure patient comfort. Once the fat is collected, it is purified to be prepared for injection. Then, it is injected into the desired areas, much like a dermal filler would be. The injection process is quick and tolerable, but the entire treatment can take as long as an hour due to the liposuction component.
What is Recovery Like After Fat Transfer and Injections?
Like dermal filler and injectable treatments, there is very little, if any, recovery required due to the injection process. However, since this procedure uses liposuction to collect fat from the body, there may be a small period of downtime after treatment. Regardless, patients are typically able to resume work and other normal activities within a few days of treatment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
The results from fat transfer and injections are visible immediately after treatment. However, not all of the fat injected will survive the treatment. For that reason, you may notice a dramatic increase in volume that will gradually decrease to a more subtle, natural level. The fat that does survive the injection will last forever, creating long-lasting results.
