WHAT IS Facial Fat TRANSFER?
There are many cosmetic options that can help restore the contours and volume of your face, but facial fat grafting is growing in popularity because of its natural outcomes and long-lasting benefits. With age, the areas around the eyes, jowls, and cheeks begin to lose youthful volume. A fat transfer to the face with advanced BeautiFill™ technology can help restore fullness without the invasiveness and risks of traditional methods. A facial fat transfer is designed to remove excess fat from one area of the body and artfully apply it to sections of your face for beautiful outcomes. To discover more, contact Raw Rejuvenation and Wellness in Millcreek, UT. Our providers, Heather Darling, FNP-IFMCP, Alisa Wright, RN, and Dr. Vanessa M. Hart, can discuss your personal goals and decide whether a facial fat transfer is best for you.
"Wonderful experience! I'll be back."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Mar 04, 2021
"Where to begin? Heather has been the missing piece for my health. I have spent years with various health issues that were "diagnosed" and prescribed a pill. The pill never worked and the "diagnoses" never stuck. The only result of the constant doctor visits was increased frustration and helplessness. I was at the end of my rope and then Heather came into my life. She took the time not to just listen to my symptoms, but to understand me and then she began to understand my body. The care, empathy, and knowledge she demonstrated in her approach to my health was uplifting and reassuring. I am now healthy and able to live my life with improved numbers, gut health, and understanding of my body. THANK YOU!! If you are done with the typical approach to medicine come see Heather. You won't be disappointed."- M.C. / Google / Nov 23, 2020
"The best part of my experience with Raw Inside and Out, is to finally have a real conversation about my health and my future health. Heather is always accessible when I need her and as an educator I can see that she continues to stay on top of new studies and techniques in personal health! Glad I found her!"- L.R. / Google / Oct 23, 2020
"Heather helped me start a healthier eating lifestyle 2.5 years ago. It helped my "numbers" improve dramatically, but most important, it made me feel better. I continue to work with Heather as she is so knowledgeable. Her understanding of functional medicine and its application to those of us in need, is exceptional. I highly recommend working with Heather to help yourself!"- J.K. / Google / Oct 23, 2020
"I have struggled with my skin, digestion, and hormones for a while and tried a lot of different things. Once I explained my symptoms to Heather she was able to access the tests I needed to take (food sensitivity/hormone test) and I began to understand my body’s needs on a different level. We're still fine-tuning everything because healing from within takes time but I've noticed quite the shift for the time that's been committed to change. It's crazy how common it is for us to live life with pains or digestive issues that become our new normal. Your health is important and I can assure you that you'll be in goods hands here. Great vibes and wonderful results."- L.M. / Google / Oct 23, 2020
Facial fat transfer faqs
Should I get a dermal filler or fat transfer?
Either a facial fat graft or a dermal filler may improve the appearance of fine lines and static wrinkles, as well as restoring volume. While fillers can give you wonderful results, a fat transfer usually lasts longer and looks more natural. During your initial consultation at Raw Rejuvenation and Wellness, our team can discuss all your options and provide a recommendation on which therapy may be ideal for you.
How long does facial fat grafting take?
On average, facial fat grafting takes about 1 – 2 hours. First, the fat needs to be extracted from an area on the body that has excess fat. Then, the purified fat needs to be transferred to the face. Our Millcreek, UT experts take great pride in their work and will take their time to carefully inject fat evenly to achieve beautiful results.
Which areas of the face can be improved with fat grafting?
Fat grafting is ideal for enhancing the mid-face or cheeks so that the areas look lifted and fuller without having to undergo surgery. And, it may be used to add volume to your upper and/or lower lips. You may even consider a fat graft to improve the sunken or hollow areas under your eyes. A facial fat transfer can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
