Fat Transfer Treatment Cleveland, OH
There are many soft tissue fillers available to improve facial lines such as Collagen and Hyaluronic acid.
Your body’s own fat can also be used to fill in facial lines around the mouth, augment the cheeks, or enhance the lips. By placing fat in these areas, Dr. Fedele can help smooth away unwanted lines or give you fuller lips resulting in a younger, fresher appearance.
Dr. Fedele uses a special technique by removing fat from one part of your body, processing it to separate it into pure fat, and then injecting it into the areas needing refinement. Free fat Transfer can be used in any area of the face that you would use Collagen or Restylane.
The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia in Dr. Fedele’s office, but can be done under sedation with other procedures.
The Fat Transfer procedure takes about one hour and you will be discharged home when stable. In the first three to four days you may have the some bruising and swelling, but by applying ice and keeping your head elevated you can diminish this swelling. Most people are back in the “public eye” within a few days and back to exercising and full activities in two to four weeks.
All surgical procedures carry risks and Dr. Fedele will spend time with you at your consultation to explain the procedure in detail and any risks involved. This website is designed to give you some basic information about Fat Transfer and is not a substitute for a comprehensive consultation and exam with Dr. Fedele. Call the Center for Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery today for a personal consultation and learn more about the “Art of Plastic Surgery” with Dr. Fedele.
