Fat Injections

Fat injections, also known as liposculpture or fat transfer, provide effective lip augmentation, in addition to filling in wrinkles and creases in the face. This aesthetic enhancement procedure involves taking fat cells from one area of the body, typically the back or buttocks, and injecting them into the lips or other areas of the face. The substance is from your own body, so there is no need for allergy testing. Fat injections are often desirable methods of facial rejuvenation because they are known to have long-lasting results, some patients maintain original results for years. Follow-up treatments can keep the aesthetic benefits of fat injections going for many more years to come. Fat injection typically takes less than an hour to complete, and there is no recovery time.

Your Consultation for Fat Injections

At the time of your consultation Dr. Leedy will review your medical history and discuss your desires and expectations. He will outline a plan to help accomplish your goals in the safest possible manner. If applicable, Dr. Leedy will provide 3D imaging to help simulate the results that are possible. You will have time to have all your questions answered. If you so desire we can arrange for a previous patient to talk to you about their experience. We approach the consultation as an opportunity to educate a patient about a procedure and you will never feel pressured or rushed to make a decision about what is right for you. All patients are provided the opportunity to return for further discussions about their procedure at no additional charge and if you decide to go forward there is always an additional consultation prior to the surgery. Educated patients are happy patients and your happiness is our only goal.
