The fat layer under your skin thins as you age, but you may notice unwanted fat deposits growing in other areas of your body. Fat transfers are special procedures that move fat from these unwanted areas and transfer them to areas where the fat has thinned, such as the nasolabial folds, cheeks, jawline, and lower eye areas. If you have noticed a hollow appearance to your face or simply want a more contoured look, Dr. Kerendian, expert in fat transfer to face in Los Angeles, may recommend a fat transfer.
Several steps are involved in this process. First, Dr. Kerendian, expert in fat transfer to face in Los Angeles, will extract the fat through a liposuction procedure. This is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation. Thin cannulas are used to harvest fat from the hips, thighs, or abdominal areas. These are called donor sites. The fat from the donor sites is decanted and processed before being injected into the recipient sites. This type of procedure has a long history of safety and effectiveness and can be used for long-lasting, natural-looking results.
Fat Transfer to Face Los Angeles
Dr. Kerendian, expert in fat transfer to face in Los Angeles, may recommend a fat transfer if you have:
• Crow’s feet
• Under eye bags
• Dark circles
• Worry lines

Fat transfers can create a plumper, softer appearance in the skin and can leave you looking refreshed, rather than tight and overly “done.” Dr. Kerendian, expert in fat transfer to face in Los Angeles, can use fat transfers in a variety of ways to refresh and rejuvenate your facial skin. The fat can be used instead of a dermal filler, or it can be used to lift facial structures, soften skin tone, and restore lost volume. This can reduce the need for later surgery and allow you to benefit from more conservative options.
