 Fat transfer is a minimally invasive procedure which can restore volume and fullness that has diminished with age.  The patient’s own fat is utilized to plump up facial features, and is a very popular alternative to other wrinkle treatments. It can cosmetically enhance your face and lips. Fat transfer to the face is a safe and natural procedure designed to contour your face and provide definition to your cheeks and chin. Fat transfer is an ideal solution for evening out asymmetrical areas of the face, correcting facial deformities and adding volume to your lips.  In addition to rejuvenating the face, fat transfer can be used for breast augmentation, breast reconstruction, butt implants, and to rejuvenate aging hands. The goal of fat transfer is for your skin to appear more youthful and smooth.


Fat Transfer may achieve your goals if:

  • You are generally in good health
  • Your weight is stable and you follow a healthy lifestyle
  • You have suitable donor regions or have areas with excess body fat such as hips, abdomen, or flanks
  • You have areas to which you’d like to add or restore volume such as lips, cheeks, or breasts
  • You would like  to rejuvenate your overall appearance
  • You have realistic goals and expectations for the procedure

 Fat transfer delivers subtle and natural looking results. Since the fat transfer is from your own body, there is no risk for allergic reaction. Unlike dermal fillers which provide results for approximately six months and require up-keeping, fat transfer can deliver permanent results. Dr. Kassir implements the latest cutting edge options used around the world to provide you with natural and long-lasting fat transfer results.
