Aging, losing weight, or other genetic factors can cause our faces and bodies go through involutional changes as a result of lost fat. Our eyes and cheeks can appear sunken in, we develop vertical lines around our mouth commonly mistaken for “smokers lines”, our hands start looking boney, and our buttocks flatten. All of these changes are a result of lost fat.
Autologous fat, which is your own fat, could hold the key to counteracting these changes. Fat cells are naturally rich in stem cells so they can regenerate and restore lost volume anywhere on the face and body.
What is an Autologous Fat Transfer?
In cosmetic terms, it means transferring fat to improve facial and body contouring. The process involves reshaping less desirable body areas by removing fat from where it is excessive, and moving it to areas that are deficient.
Many of our patients have benefited from Autologous Fat Transfers in Indianapolis & Santa Rosa. Dr. Chernoff performs one or two each week. The most common procedures he performs are Brazilian buttocks lifts, face, and hand rejuvenation. We are currently studying other areas for autologous injections.
Autologous fat transfer is safe, natural and non-allergenic because it’s your own cells and is accepted by your body. Autologous fat transfer is performed with an ultrasound assisted method to remove fat then re-inject it anywhere you are experiencing lost volume.
Unlike synthetic fillers, fat transfer is permanent. Unlike implants, fat is from your own body. It’s safe and natural. The transplanted fat cells develop their own blood supply and will remain in their new location.
