Autologous Fat Injections

Fat Injections harvested from your own body are an excellent alternative to dermal fillers for some patients. The procedure uses your body’s own fat cells, making it a safe and natural procedure. Over time, your muscles can lose volume and, combined with exercise and diet, the face can thin. Fat transfer from Gordon Schanzlin New Vision Institute Institute can re-contour the face and soften lines or facial deformities. The procedure is performed in an outpatient surgery center and recovery is just a few days.

Microlipoinjection is a process to acquire fat from one part of the body and inject it using a hypodermic syringe into the desired location. Both sites – the donor location and the recipient area – are anesthetized for your comfort. Prior to injection, the fat cells are separated from any liquid and cleansed. The procedure typically takes less than an hour. Results are usually evident immediately after the injection and can last for several months.
