Over time, skin tends to lose some of its elasticity on areas of the face and body. During this time fat volume can also be lost. This results in volume loss, lines, creases and depressed areas that can make the individual appear tired or drawn. It is also common for lips to lose their volume and appear thinner as we age.
Fat transfer, also known as “Autologous Fat Transplantation” or “Micro–Lipoinjection” can be used to correct many of these areas, as well as to improve acne scarring. During the procedure, fat is harvested from one part of the body such as the abdomen, thighs or buttocks, and injected into the areas that require correction.
To find out if fat transfer is right for you, please contact our knowledgeable staff at our Oakville office, between Hamilton and Toronto, Ontario. If you are ready to schedule for consultation, Dr. Julie Khanna is able to provide her patients with all of the information that they will need to make the most informed decision.
