(Autologous Fat Transplantation)
Dr. Salloum can add volume to specific areas by adding fat cells removed from another part of the patient’s body and injecting them into the problem area. Common areas include the lips, skin above and under the eyes, around the jawline and neck, under the nose, naso labial folds, HIV lipoatrophy, and on the backs of the hands.
Fat Injections can be cost effective by eliminating the need for multiple filler injections.
Approximately 1-3 hours.
Local with/without sedation or general if incorporated with another procedure.
