WHAT IS A Fat TRANSFER?
Nowadays, there are numerous treatments that restore the contours and volume of your face and body, but fat grafting is increasing in popularity because of its natural improvements and lasting benefits. Loss of volume, most commonly caused by aging, is usually more pronounced around the eyes, jawlines, and cheeks. Nonsurgical fat grafting with advanced technology is used to correct some of the more typical signs of aging, and it replenishes plumpness by smoothing lines, wrinkles, and folds throughout your face with your transferred fat. By removing excess fat from your body, skilled physician Dr. Daniel Skinner in Huntsville, AL can carefully reapply the fat into the desired areas of your face and body for beautiful, lasting outcomes. To find out more about facial fat grafting, contact BioWell Therapeutics to arrange an appointment with Dr. Skinner.
HOW IS MINIMALLY INVASIVE FAT TRANSFER DONE?
A fat transfer can be performed in a number of areas to add volume, decrease facial lines, or improve the contours of the face and body. A fat transfer is ideal to augment the cheeks so that this area appears lifted and fuller without having to undergo surgery. Additionally, transferred fat can also be used as a natural lip filler. You can also use a fat graft to fill the hollow under-eye areas or to add volume to larger areas, like the breasts and buttocks. Facial fat grafting may also improve pitted acne scars and wrinkles (for example, brow furrows, marionette lines). Dr. Skinner will develop your custom treatment plan to focus on your concerns and cosmetic goals.

Fat transfer FAQs
Is fat transfer permanent?
Patients should keep in mind that some of the transferred fat may be reabsorbed into their bodies over time. However, a fat transfer procedure is long-lasting if you continue to maintain your weight. The team at BioWell Therapeutics is happy to perform additional treatments as needed in the future.
Will I have scarring afterward?
Because our fat transfer procedure is nonsurgical, no scarring is expected during recovery. Some patients may experience minor and temporary side effects like swelling and bruising in the treatment area. Our staff in Huntsville, AL, can provide information about what happens during recovery and how to feel more comfortable.
How long does this procedure take?
A fat transfer procedure doesn't take long, but it depends on the number of areas being treated. We typically require a few hours for the process, so try not to schedule any important events that day. Patients should also set aside time for recovery at home after their fat transfer.
