Fat transfer in Westlake, Texas

Plump up facial depressions or creases without synthetic fillers

Fat transfers are performed at our state-of-the-art clinic in Westlake, Texas

What if you could fill in creases, acne scars, or depressions that affect the appearance of your facial skin or the contours of your face without the use of synthetic fillers? Fat transfer makes it possible to smooth and raise depressed areas–including creasing around the mouth, nose, and eyes; scarring on the cheeks; and hollows contributing to the appearance of jowls–by filling them in with fatty tissue taken from another part of the body.

This revolutionary treatment is offered as an outpatient procedure at Stone Surgical Arts, conveniently located to serve Westlake, Texas. Facial fat transfer provides natural-looking, long-lasting plumping, smoothing, and rejuvenation for facial skin that is showing signs of aging or scarring.

Smooth and rejuvenate the face using your own tissues

What is fat transfer surgery?

Fat transfer is a type of surgical procedure that involves harvesting small amounts of extra fat from one part of the body and injecting it into a different area in order to augment, plump, or reshape the target area. Acclaimed oral and maxillofacial surgeon Dr. Mona Stone specializes in using fat transfer to smooth, shape, and rejuvenate facial skin, minimizing signs of aging or scarring.

Long-lasting, natural results

What are the benefits of a facial fat transfer?

Facial fat transfer makes it possible to enjoy the benefits of dermal fillers using your own tissues to provide long-lasting smoothing and toning. Once the transferred fatty tissue is established, results are permanent. Fat transfer to the face can be used to plump out deep creases and crow’s feet, lift depressed acne scars, and smooth away the appearance of sagging jowls.

A versatile approach for your unique concerns

Am I a good candidate for facial fat transfer?

Facial fat transfer is safe and effective for individuals who are generally healthy and do not smoke. Practicing careful sun protection and good skin care will help you preserve optimal results. Fat transfer can help smooth away creases and sunken areas caused by a variety of factors, including aging, acne scarring, and weight changes. At your consultation, Dr. Stone can help you determine if fat transfer will be an effective method for achieving your cosmetic goals.

Your fat transfer procedure

What to expect

The duration of your procedure will depend on the areas to be addressed. At your consultation, Dr. Stone will determine the best site for fat extraction and create a plan for transferring the tissue to key areas of the face to create a smooth, lifted appearance.

The procedure itself consists of three steps, all of which can be performed at our modern Westlake, Texas, office, Stone Surgical Arts. First, fat will be taken from the collection site identified for the procedure using a needle. The fat will then be processed and purified in preparation for the transfer. Finally, a small needle will be used to inject fat into creases or depressed areas in the face in the same manner as dermal fillers. A numbing cream may be applied for your comfort during the procedure.

After your procedure

Fat transfer recovery

After the procedure, it is normal to see some swelling and bruising around the injection areas. Most swelling will resolve within a few days to a week, but it is possible for mild residual swelling to last longer. Pain medication is generally not required but may be prescribed if needed. During your procedure, extra fat may be injected to compensate for the natural reabsorption of some of the transferred tissue into the body. Depending on the level of reabsorption, it is occasionally necessary to perform a second procedure to achieve optimal results.

Lasting results that make you look younger

Fat transfer results

Fat transfer can provide impressive contouring, plumping, and smoothing for aging and/or acne-scarred faces. Depressions in the skin will be smoothed out, giving your entire face a more youthful, pliant tone. Once the transfer is successfully established, results are permanent. Patients appreciate the beautiful, natural results that can be achieved by using their own tissues to smooth and rejuvenate the skin of the face.
