Hollow cheeks, aging forehead, thin lips, and stubborn facial lines are just a few cosmetic problems that aging men and women experience. However, advancements in plastic surgery have made it easier for one to look young, whether it’s via Botox, facelift, or dermal fillers. Here at our Manhattan cosmetic surgery practice, our Manhattan fat fillers are becoming increasingly popular, particularly for those who are concerned about using foreign substances in improving the appearance of their skin. 

Who Should Get Fat Injections in Manhattan

Men and women who wish to augment certain parts of the body are most likely to benefit from fat fillers. The most commonly filled areas include the face, hands, and those who develop depressions in skin contour following another plastic surgery such as breast augmentation and liposuction.

Apart from excellent health, anyone desiring fat fillers should be able to understand the pros and cons of the procedure as well as comply with aftercare instructions to be able to reap the full benefits of the surgery.

If you’re considering fat fillers, you should be aware of the possibility that repeated treatments may be required to achieve the desired results. Lastly, you need to have sufficient amounts of fat deposits.

What Happens During the Procedure

The procedure is done on an outpatient basis. A local anesthetic is applied to the area in which fat is taken as well as to the recipient area.  Using a tiny needle attached to a syringe, a substantial amount of fat is removed from a donor site, where the fat is most tightly packed, such as your abdomen or the buttocks. Once removed, the fat is processed to remove excess fluids, and then reinjected using another needle, which is placed under the skin beneath the recipient area. Multiple treatments are required until the desired correction is achieved.
