Fat InjectionsDr. Edmund Kwan, MD, understands that everyone wants to look their best. When patients are dealing with a tired, aging appearance, they may benefit from plastic and reconstructive surgery at his practice. Fat injections are requested by many patients who want to reduce bags under their eyes and lost volume of their face.
Fat injections use fat cells harvested from other areas of the body. Dr. Edmund Kwan refines the fat before injecting it into specific areas of the face. It can be used on areas such as the eyes, temples, cheeks, and nasolabial folds to add much-needed volume for a more youthful appearance. It can be done in conjunction with other surgical treatments including face-lifts and neck lifts.
Most fat is removed from areas of the body such as the hip or thigh where patients may have excess fat cells and may have considered liposuction. The fat is removed with a syringe and then redistributed to areas of the face.
Fat injections are a wonderful alternative to dermal fillers, and provide more long-term results. The best candidates for fat injections (also known as fat grafting) are those who are experiencing areas of lost volume on the face. These patients may have undergone dermal fillers or collagen stimulators and been unhappy with the short-term results they provide. Patients who want a more permanent treatment may be deemed an appropriate candidate for treatments such as this.
What our patients say
I just looked in the mirror and I like what I see. I am a 55 year old male. I heard praise for Dr. Kwan from friends and went in for a consult. I like Kwan’s direct and informative approach. That was a Friday, I booked a lower facelift, upper lid and fat relocation to the cheeks for the following Thursday. All went really well. I was surprised how little bruising and discomfort I felt. I was prepared for more. So now about 10 weeks later, I must say, I look really great. The change is subtle, which is just what I wanted. I truly feel that a bit of time has been turned back. And that, is a Good Thing.
