“Today we’re talking about fat graft to the face. First the fat is aspirated from the patient’s abdomen – this is done painlessly under local anesthesia. Fat cells are aspirated into syringes and the syringes are put into a centrifuge that spins the fat for about 3 minutes and separates the layers of tissue into three layers. We discard the blood and the oil and by doing so, all that’s left in the syringe is the pure fat cells. The fat cells are then transferred steriley into smaller syringes. Those are the syringes that will be injected into the patient’s face or whatever part we are addressing. The fat is then injected into the deep tissues of the face according to our plan from our consultation with the patient where we decide where the fat is going to be injected. Usually the cheeks, the upper eyelids, the temple areas – those are most of the areas that are being injected routinely. If you have any questions please give us a call at NOVA Plastic Surgery.”
