Fat Transfer and Injections in Manhattan, NYC & Long Island

Your natural fat can be used to soften wrinkles, correct abnormalities on your face and improve the results of your breast and liposuction procedures. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Craig Baldenhofer, MD, performs fat transfer and injections on the face and body for men and women in Manhattan, New York City and Long Island.

What are Fat Transfer and Injections?

The fat on your body can be used for many types of cosmetic procedures. You may want to consider fat grafting if you are concerned with having synthetic substances used for aesthetic enhancement. A popular technique that we use is to fill in abnormalities caused by liposuction and breast surgery, but fat transfer and injections are also extremely effective for treating wrinkles and other flaws on the face. Dr. Baldenhofer uses fat grafting for several procedures, such as:

  • Refining the shape and size of the nose
  • Enhancing the lips
  • Adding volume to the cheeks and mid-face area
  • Filling in the temple area
  • Correcting lines and wrinkles

What are the Benefits of Fat Transfer and Injections?

The primary benefit of fat transfer and injections is that the procedure uses tissue from your own body. Some downtime may be required as a result of the harvesting process. Fat grafting allows us to use a great degree of precision to address your individual cosmetic concerns.

Who is a Good Candidate for Fat Transfer and Injections?

Because fat transfer and injections uses your own fat, the procedure is safe for most patients. You will need to have adequate donor fat for the procedure. We typically take the fat from the abdomen, buttocks, thighs and back. The amount of fat that is removed is not sufficient enough to reduce the size of the extraction area.

What Should I Expect from Fat Transfer and Injections?

Fat grafting is performed in two steps. The first step involves using liposuction techniques to extract fat cells. The fat is then processed and purified. For the second step, Dr. Baldenhofer uses a micro-cannula to inject the fat cells into the treatment area.

The liposuction requires a small incision that should heal without sutures. The scar is barely visible. The area in which the fat was injected may feel tight, tender and swollen for several days. Your body may naturally absorb the fat cells, so you may need a follow-up treatment after several months.
