Natural Alternative To Fillers

Makeup_tips_for_mature_skinIf you are seeking a natural way to fill out sensitive areas of your face, but do not want to use chemicals or toxic fillers, a fat transfer may be the solution you are looking for. Fat Transfer is a natural way to add volume in the face, creating a more youthful and fuller appearance. Fat Transfer can be used to correct facial asymmetry, diminish the appearance of scars, or fill in unwanted frown lines and wrinkles.

Why Fat Transfers?

Fat Transfers are growing in popularity for being a natural and safe alternative to dermal fillers. More patients are looking for a non-chemical cosmetic enhancement that Fat Transfers can offer. Some patients suffer from a reaction to the chemicals found in other dermal fillers. Fat Transfers can offer an alternative solution and patients tend to have a significantly lower rejection rate to the injected fat material. Fat Transfers have also proven to have longer lasting results than traditional dermal fillers, using the body’s own tissue and natural healing response. Dr. Bryan Ambro and Dr. James Chappell also offer multiple types of dermal fillers and encourage every patient to make the best choice for themselves. In a personal consultation, Dr. Ambro and Dr. Chappell will help educate each patient on which cosmetic treatment will best suit their needs.

  1. Liposuction: The fat is generally removed from the lower body. The volume of fat needed to fill in the face is not usually significant. It will be difficult to nearly impossible to notice the missing fat. Drs. Ambro and Chappell offer several different methods of liposuction and will discuss your options with you before the procedure.
  2. Purification: The removed fat will be prepared in a sterile environment. The fat is purified and cleansed of impurities.
  3. Injections: Like other fillers, the purified fat will be inserted into the deflated areas of the face with small injections.
