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

In light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to let you know of some of the major precautions we are taking in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. Our highest priority is always to ensure the safety of every individual who sees us and we are taking extreme infection-control measures to maintain cleanliness and “sterility” of surfaces and the overall environment.

We will be limiting dates and times for office appointments and consultations due to safety and other issues. Consequently, if you have already made an office appointment or consultation prior to March 18, 2020 to occur at a later time, this may need to be changed.

For anyone considering plastic surgery, we are now offering Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through Skype. A great number of aesthetic or insurance-related issues can be evaluated via pictures and online video conferencing, making this an excellent way to find out more about particular procedures, determine candidacy for treatment, receive answers to questions and facilitate being able to move forward with care once the government lifts all restrictions.

In an abundance of caution, we are asking all current patients who are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness to 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.

We are all in this together. Our team urges everyone to follow the guidelines recommended by local health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which include frequent handwashing for a minimum of 20 seconds, social distancing, staying home if you are feeling sick, and contacting your healthcare provider if you feel you are experiencing symptoms.
