Fat Transfer

Dermal fillers are popular choices to revolumize the cheeks, hands, and lips. However, volume loss is sometimes too severe to resolve with dermal fillers alone.

In these cases, the experts at St. Louis Skin Solutions offer fat transfer treatments to revolumize depleted areas of the face, hands, and decolletage.

Using Fat Transfer to Fight Signs of Aging
Fat transfer has many different uses. The most popular treatment areas include:

  • Sunken cheeks
  • Deep grooves running from the nose to the corners of the mouth
  • Lines between the lower eyelids and cheek
  • Lip enhancement
  • Back of the hands
  • Injuries or irregularities on the body
  • Deep acne scars

Overall, fat transfer is a cost-effective way to revolumize these areas if a large amount of filler is needed.

FAQ

How Does Fat Transfer Work?
Fat transfer, also known as fat grating or lipofilling, is a procedure that uses fat from one area of your body to fill grooves, irregularities, or volume depletion. It’s a time-tested technique that offers attractive, predictable results. During fat transfer, your St. Louis Skin Solutions expert obtains up to 200 cc of fat from your thighs, abdomen, or torso. The fat is harvested, cleansed, processed, and micronized to yield up to 50 cc of graftable fat. Each cc of fat, which is equal to one syringe of filler, is re-implanted into the areas of concern on your face and body. The process takes 2 to 3 hours, depending on the size of areas to be treated. Local anesthesia keeps you comfortable without requiring a long recovery period.
How Does Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Improve Fat Transfer?
The team at St. Louis Skin Solutions offers the unique addition of PRP to your fat transfer.PRP is a concentrated solution of platelets that improves graft survival and enhances results. If you opt to include PRP in your treatment, it is mixed with fat cells prior to re-implantation.

    I've visited St Louis Skin Solutions a number of times for various services including laser for scars, visible facial capillaries, botox and fillers. Most of these were my first time receiving the treatment so needless to say, I was nervous. They always do an excellent job and the injections have left me with zero bruising! I will continue to come back, and all the way from the deep urban city limits. Worth it.

    Dr. Miller and her entire team are wonderful. I’ve been thrilled with every treatment I’ve had, as well as the skincare products I now use at home. Because I’ve lost a lot of weight, I’ve been especially concerned about loose skin, and they’ve been able to help address this - and do so much more! I feel more confident than ever in my appearance.
