With time, we often lose facial fat and gain fat in places we don’t want it, like the stomach, arms or thighs. Dr. George Lefkovits understands this, which is why he offers facial fat transfers in New York, New York, at Park Plaza Plastic Surgery.
Fat transfer is increasingly popular as a filler to the face and is an alternative to the likes of Juvéderm and Radiesse. During a fat transfer, the plastic surgeon will remove fat from unwanted places and will use it to restore the youthful contours of your face. This treatment can help you achieve your desired look without using artificial implants or fillers.
This treatment has many advantages including: being in abundant supply, consisting of your own tissue, not having to be charged per syringe and in many cases, may last longer than other fillers. Its main disadvantage is the need for a minor procedure under local anesthesia. It also may lead to more swelling after surgery. But these minor disadvantages are often offset by the various advantages.
If you have questions about this treatment and if it is right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Lefkovits at 212-750-9494. We look forward to helping you feel more confident in your beautiful skin.
