Redmond Fat Transfer Cosmetic Surgery Procedures
When many patients think of cosmetic surgery, they may often think of liposuction, which is the removal of fatty deposits so that patients can have a thinner, younger look. However, liposuction can also be used for other reasons, such as adding fat to the body. While most people might not think of needing to add fat to their body, there are areas that lose collagen and elastin over time, and can use extra fatty deposits to help minimize the look of the aging process. The face especially can look saggy or droopy with age, because of lack of fat. In this case, liposuction can be used to move fat from one area of the body to another. A procedure not offered by many plastic surgeons, here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer fat transfer cosmetic surgery in Redmond so that our patients have the opportunity to always look and feel their best.
This type of surgery is a 3-part process, and our resident physician, Dr. Jan Zemplenyi, is an expert in the field of fat transfer procedures. First of all, a patient must have a liposuction procedure. To add fat to the face or neck area, fat must first be taken from another area of the body. This can usually be taken from the abdomen, buttocks, or thigh area. After liposuction, fat grafting and fat injections are the next step to adding more volume to an area that requires it, such as the face.
While grafting and injections do not require anesthesia, liposuction is a surgical procedure that requires recovery time. Here at Bel-Red, we offer both twilight sedation and full anesthesia, and each patient can choose his or her own preference.
