Tacoma Fat Transfer Cosmetic Surgery Procedures
When a patent wants to look younger and healthier in the face and neck area, there are many different types of procedures available that can help them. Here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, our doctor, Dr. Jan Zemplenyi, meets with every patient to discuss what is best for them, prior to any surgery. For some patients, the answer is a facelift or eyelid lift. For others, non-surgical procedures are the right choice, such as Botox injections. For others, there is a unique approach to looking younger in the face. Here at Bel-Red, we offer fat transfer cosmetic surgery in Tacoma, so that patients have many options available to regain confidence, and to look and feel their best.
As we age, skin begins to sag and get sallow, because we lose collagen and elastin. Fat transfer is a 3-part procedure that takes fat from one area of the body and places it in another. First, liposuction is performed on an area of the body that has extra fatty deposits, such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. Then, a fat grafting procedure is performed on the site where fat is to be added, followed by a fat injection.
This procedure is a surgical procedure that does require some level of anesthesia. During consultation, doctor and patient can best decide what is right for them. Here at Bel-Red, we offer both twilight sedation and full anesthesia for the liposuction portion of the procedure. Grafting and injection do not require sedation.
