Autologous Fat Injections for Facial Rejuvenation

You do not necessarily need to have a foreign substance injected into your face in order to plump out areas for wrinkle reduction or to add volume. There is another option. Autologous fat injections remove fat from another area of your body and inject it into targeted areas of your face. These injections are used to fill out creased areas, plump up areas where facial volume has been lost and enhance the look of fullness in your facial features.

This minimally invasive procedure improves facial contours by eliminating the nasolabial folds between the lips and the nose and the lines between the lips and the chin. These lines are also called marionette lines. Autologous fat injections can also be used to fill in cheeks that look saggy or flat.

The natural look of autologous fat injections make them a popular option for wrinkle removal and overall rejuvenation of the aging face. Complications with this type of filler are minimal. Your own body fat is used, so there is little chance of an allergic reaction or rejection.

The Autologous Fat Injection Procedure

This procedure can be used on individuals who are healthy and have enough body fat to use in the treatment. Transferring fat from one part of the body to your face involves liposuction techniques to remove the fat from the harvest area. These areas are usually the lower abdomen, hips or thighs. Tiny incisions are made to remove the fat.

Once the fat has been harvested, it is then prepared for injection into the targeted areas on the face. Lines, hollows of the face and depressions are injected with the fat to rejuvenate and recontour those areas. Since some of the fat cells will not survive the procedure, the area may be overfilled to compensate for fat cell losses.

Autologous fat injections can last a very long time. When a blood supply is established with the healthy fat cells, the procedure becomes relatively permanent.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Melodie D.

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
