Facial creases such as laugh lines, smile lines and crow’s feet result when the underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful and plumped up begin to break down. To correct these effects, fat can be removed from the abdomen, thighs or other areas and transferred by injection to areas of the face.
Dr. Diamond uses fat transfer for a number of different facial enhancements. He can fill in creased and sunken areas of the face or add fullness to the lips and cheeks. He can also minimize lines between the nose and mouth, correct skin depressions or indentations and minimize forehead wrinkles using this technique.
Fat transfers are a great way to restore a refreshed appearance in a quick and painless way, under local anesthesia and with minimal downtime.
This procedure is often done in conjuction with facelifts.
