Fat Transfer and Injections in Long Island, NY
If you are looking for the most natural way to enhance your features and fight the signs of aging, we invite you to learn more about fat transfer and injections by Eunice E. Park, MD, a dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon and ear, nose and throat (otolaryngology) specialist who offers fat transfer and injections for men and women in Long Island, Queens and surrounding communities in New York.
What are Fat Transfer and Injections?
Fat grafting is a technique that uses your own fat for cosmetic treatments. Fat transfer and injections may be recommended for treating:
- Thin, poorly-defined lips
- Hollow cheeks and temples
- Lines and wrinkles
The fat is taken from a part of your body where you have excess fat. The harvesting process may be part of your facial liposuction procedure.
Benefits of Fat Transfer and Injections
The primary benefit of fat transfer and injections is that the fat comes from your own body. This reduces the chances of an allergic reaction and having the fat cells rejected by your body.
Am I a Candidate for Fat Transfer and Injections?
Patients should be at least 18 years old to be considered for fat transfer and injections, but most fat grafting patients are between 30 and 65 years old. You should have adequate fat on your body or face to allow Dr. Park to harvest the necessary volume of fat. The amount of fat is minimal, so this is not considered a body contouring procedure.
What to Expect from Fat Transfer and Injections
A small incision is made in the skin to provide access to the fat layer. Dr. Park uses liposuction techniques to loosen the fat and suction it out of the area. The fat is then purified and loaded into a syringe. Dr. Park uses the fat to sculpt the treatment area.
How Much Do Fat Transfer and Injections Cost in Long Island, NY?
Fat transfer and injections are customized to each patient, so the cost varies. During your consultation, Dr. Park determines if fat transfer and injection is your best option as well as the donor site for the fat. She then develops a treatment plan which we use to provide you with an estimated cost. We cannot foresee every circumstance, so you may incur additional charges during the procedure. Payment can be made by cash, check or major credit card. You can apply before your consultation so that you know your budget before deciding to have fat transfer and injections.
