Fat Transfer Cosmetic Surgery in Kirkland
When patients think about plastic surgery, they may not often consider adding fat to areas to their body, as opposed to taking fat away. While liposuction is a very common plastic surgery procedure that involves the removal of fatty deposits from the body, liposuction can also be used to remove fatty deposits from one area of the body, and inject them into another one. As we age, we lose collagen and elastin in our skin. This can namely affect the facial and neck areas, and can cause many patients to look older than they actually are. The loss of collagen especially can cause skin to sag and look droopy. The injection of fat can immediately add volume, causing a younger, fresher look. Here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer fat transfer cosmetic surgery in Kirkland, so that all of our patients have the opportunity to look and feel their best.
There are several stages to this procedure, and the first is liposuction. Liposuction is a true surgical procedure that will require some sort of anesthesia. Here at Bel-Red, we offer both twilight sedation and complete anesthesia. During consultation, doctor and patient can decide what is best for them. Following liposuction, the area in which the fat is to be applied requires fat grafting, and finally, the injection. This procedure does require a little bit of recovery time, but our patients have told us that it is well worth it for the outcome of the results.
