Augment and trim, naturally, with fat injections
in the NYC tri-state area
All of us desire to look our best. Knowing this, Board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Edmund Kwan, and his team offer a wide range of surgical and non-surgical procedures and products to restore youthful vitality. Among these many treatments are fat injections available in NYC at one of Dr. Kwan’s three Tri-State area locations: in Manhattan, Flushing, and Fort Lee, NJ. Patients love this no-filler way to erase under-eye bags and awaken tired eyes, or to plump up sunken or depressed areas, such as the mid-face or cheeks, which can betray your years.
Why would someone inject fat?
Often, people talk about fat in terms of the negative, such as weight gain and pockets of “excess” that have big implications for our health and how we feel about ourselves. But Dr. Kwan’s diverse, multi-ethnic client base appreciates this treatment that injects fat as a way of addressing age-related conditions. Notably, as we age, skin loses its structure and once plump facial contours are deflated. The reflection that looks back at you in the mirror may look severe, drawn, exhausted, and sickly. These areas of volume loss can be improved tremendously with the addition of the fat that was lost due to the passage of time and the natural process of aging.
Formerly, options to satisfy more extensive amounts of volume loss were limited. Dermal or soft tissue facial fillers are extremely popular; however, they have their drawbacks for patients who are looking for lasting or longer-term solutions, or those who don’t want to have ongoing injections to maintain the results from fillers.
Furthermore, fat injections serve a dual purpose. In addition to treating volume loss in the face, this procedure may be administered to treat stubborn pockets of fat. As we get older, hormonal and other changes occur that can cause formerly toned areas to look flabby. These zones of fat are notoriously stubborn to slim down with diet and exercise alone. Dr. Kwan can adeptly take fat from the areas where you don’t want it, such as the love handles around the middle or the back of the arms and inject the cells into the areas that could use the boost. So, it volumizes and trims in a single, natural and lasting treatment.
Fat Injections Before and After Done By Dr. Kwan
How does this multi-tasking treatment work?
Using a syringe, Dr. Kwan safely harvests and processes quantities of quality fat from areas of the body where you don’t want it, such as the hips and thighs. Purified fat can then be re-implanted safely into areas where you could use the additional fat cells, including:
- Hollows of the eyes or tear troughs
- Temples above the eyes on either side of the face
- Apples of the cheeks
- Nasolabial folds or “smile lines” around the nose and mouth
Dr. Kwan can adeptly perform this procedure in conjunction with other treatments, such as neck-lifts. He’ll evaluate your needs and discuss your goals for treatment during a complimentary consultation scheduled at one of his three offices. During that consultation, you can see how these treatments will improve the appearance of your face, thanks to the Vectra 3D imaging system. It’s a no-risk way to give the procedures that you are considering at Edmund Kwan, M.D. a “test drive.”
The benefits of fat redistribution, your way
There are numerous reasons Dr. Kwan’s patients gravitate toward this dual-purpose treatment. You, too, may enjoy the many benefits of fat injections or fat transfer, including:
- It’s a natural procedure – Since the fat is “autologous,” meaning it comes from your own body, the risks associated with synthetic products are eliminated. The process is safe and gets desirable augmentation by using your own tissues. You’ll look refreshed, and not like you’ve “had work done.”
- Augment and reduce in a single visit – This approach allows patients to not only boost shallow areas, but to also tone up stubborn localized fat in other areas.
- Results are long-lasting – Many popular dermal fillers or collagen stimulators achieve desirable results; however, the effects from several of those injectable products last for around six months. Patients must have maintenance injections to retain that smooth and youthful plumpness. With fat grafting, additional injections aren’t necessary to maintain that healthy and vibrant appearance.
Dr. Kwan’s patients also benefit from his considerable experience and skill. But treatments at Edmund Kwan, M.D. aren’t cost-prohibitive. We look forward to hearing from you and making your goals for treatment a reality.
