Fat Injection in Lexington, KY

If you live in Lexington, Georgetown, or the surrounding areas of Kentucky, and have an interest in achieving a more youthful and fresh look, fat injections from Dowden Plastic Surgery will help you achieve your dream.

What is a Fat Injection?

Also known as fat grafting or fat transfer, fat injection transfers fat from areas in which you have excess fat, such as the outer thighs, and injects it into areas that may be lacking in volume, such as your face, hands, breasts or buttocks.

Benefits of Fat Injection

Fat injection as a cosmetic treatment is

  • Natural
  • Versatile
  • Long-lasting
  • Safe

One of the biggest benefits of volume enhancement via fat injection is that there is absolutely no chance of an adverse allergic reaction.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Fat Injection?

As a candidate for a fat injection procedure, you should generally be in good health. We use a local anesthetic to remove fat from the area where it is available in excess, and it will then be placed in a machine called a centrifuge, used to separate the liquid product from the living fat cells, which are then injected into a vascular environment where they live. Fat transfers are living grafts, requiring a rigid technique to harvest, separate and carefully place the fat cells into the area to be corrected. While it is normal to experience some bruising patients can immediately return to normal activities.

The Fat Injection Procedure

Typically, we perform fat injections around the face, but they can also be used in the breasts and other areas where there are unsightly depressions in your skin. We take fat cells from other areas of your body, and once we remove them, we separate out the living fat cells before reinserting them into the desired area. In recent years, fat injections have developed past their original use in lips, and can now be used to battle the aging signs in other areas of the body. For example, if you have experienced sagging skin and fat depressions in other areas of your face, a fat injection can help you achieve a youthful and plumped look that you would otherwise miss out on.
