I am looking into getting a facelift. I need some regions of my face to get injectable fillers as my face has thinned tremendously in the last ten years. Can I get a fat transfer to use as the filler?
It is very common in our practice to combine a facelift with a fat transfer. Typically the fat transfer is important for adding volume around the eyes and cheek and mouth area while a facelift lifts the jawline, neck and lower face. The entire procedure of harvesting and injecting the fat and the facelift are performed at the same time in about 3 to 4 hours and save the patient from having multiple surgeries to achieve total facial rejuvenation.
