Have you ever wished you could remove fat from your tummy or thighs and add it to another place where it would look more attractive? With plastic surgery, it is possible. Fat transfers can use your existing body fat to improve your facial features. City Facial Plastics in Manhattan offers fat transfers or grafting to enhance your facial appearance.

It is common for fat under the facial skin to dissipate as you age. Volume is lost in the face, causing sagging, gauntness, wrinkles and other aging issues. Lips can look thin or wrinkled as well. Facial fillers help combat these problems, but they are only temporary. Fat transfers offer a long-lasting solution to restore volume in lips, cheeks and other areas of the face for a more youthful appearance.

Am I a Good Candidate for Fat Grafting?

Many people notice aging issues in their face due to fat loss under the skin. Fat grafting or transfers use fat harvested from other areas on your body to add needed volume to the skin and face. If you have any of the issues listed below, you may be a good candidate for fat grafting:

  • Thin lips
  • Hollows or bags under the eyes
  • Flattened cheeks
  • Midface lines, folds or wrinkles

Precise fat transfers can give your face improved contours to fight aging. You can also enjoy fuller, sexier lips. First, the process requires body liposuction to harvest the fat. Then the fat is purified and transferred, or injected, into the desired area on your face for long-lasting added volume.

If you are interested in learning more about fat transfers to improve the appearance of your face or lips, contact City Facial Plastics in NYC today. We will schedule a consultation with Dr. Gary Linkov to determine if fat grafting is right for you.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!

Rachel G.
