Lip Augmentation with Fat Transfer


Lip Augmentation with Fat Transfer

Introduction


A lip augmentation with fat transfer is an all-natural procedure transfers fat from areas in which you have excess fat, such as the outer thighs, and injects it into areas that may be lacking in volume, such as your face, hands, breasts or buttocks. This safe, long-lasting, well-tolerated procedure produces natural-looking results. Every year, thousands of people undergo successful fat grafting and are pleased with their results.

Dr. Barrett is skilled in performing this procedure for patients desiring more youthful faces using their own, natural fat cells. The following scenarios are also reason to consider breast fat grafting:

  • If you have facial features that appear creased and sunken

Results and Recovery

For the two to four weeks following surgery, it is common to feel some swelling, numbness, bruising, tightness, and/or tension in the face and neck region. While these side effects will often create a somewhat uneven or distorted appearance, they will disappear within a few months. Even though you might not notice the changes that have been made to your face, most patients actually feel comfortable and confident with their new look by day ten post-surgery, and many of them even return to work after 2-3 weeks. Dr. Barrett will provide more specific instructions on how to best care for yourself during the recovery period customized on your condition and surgery.
