An individual’s own fat can be used as an almost limitless filler material to help provide fullness or enlargement of areas as well as to correct contour irregularities. Fat injections (also called lipofilling) can be used to create fuller lips, level out depressed scars, fill out areas of excess fat removal resulting from a previous liposuction, address facial creases and augment and contour various facial and body areas including the breasts. It has become particularly very popular in the face to treat the facial atrophy that is a natural consequence of aging. Lipofilling as an ancillary technique in breast reconstruction has resulted in the ability to obtain far better results with greater  precision and predictability than ever before.

Treatment Using Fat Injections

Treatment by fat injection may be a minor procedure that can be done under local anesthesia with or without sedation depending on the extent of the area(s) to be addressed. During the fat transfer procedure, liposuction is used to remove the fat from various areas of the body. This fat is then processed and injected into the desired areas.

Not all of the fat that is transplanted into the targeted area will survive. Most patients require more than one fat transfer treatment in order to achieve optimal results.

Please contact the Arizona Center for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery today to learn more about the fat injection/lipofilling procedure. You can also learn more about fat injections on our skin treatment FAQs page.

A Message Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19

As always, our highest priority is to ensure YOUR safety and well-being.

With coronavirus/COVID-19 still a health issue, we want you to know that we are continuing to take extreme infection control measures in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. This also means that only patients will be permitted to come into our office and everyone will have their temperature checked.

In an abundance of caution, we are requesting that if you are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness, please delay any upcoming appointments at our practice. We can talk with you by phone or email to establish a new date and time for the appointment. You may also want to contact your healthcare provider for further evaluation.

We do offer Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through doxy.me. This is best used for specific situations including postoperative questions and as a substitute for some postoperative office visits relating to certain procedures. However, if you are planning to proceed with surgery, an in-office evaluation will be required.

We are all in this together and really appreciate your cooperation. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by phone or email.
