What is a Fat Injection?
Fat Injection is a type of plastic surgery that improves the appearance of lines on the face by using fat harvested from the patient and injected into the area of concern.
Frequently individuals ask about what can be used to improve the appearance of certain lines or folds in the face. The most common areas of concern are the lines between the eyes and folds from the sides of the nose to the mouth. Dr. Felice has used the individual’s own fat very successfully and has pioneered a technique that maximizes the longevity of the fat graft. The procedure typically requires two sessions and can last for 2-5 years. This is in contrast to wrinkle fillers that needs repeat injections every 3-12 months. For those individuals requiring larger volume injections, fat injections may be financially a better option. What to expect during a Fat Injection consultation:
