NonSurgical Fat Transfer
Nonsurgical fat transfer can safely be performed in the office under local anesthesia. A small amount (10-15 mLs) of adipose tissue is liposuctioned from the outer or inner thigh or abdomen. The fat cells are then centrifuged and purified in preparation for grafting.
Dr. Kolstad will mark on the face where he believes the lipografts will best achieve the desired result. Using a mirror you can confirm the markings are where you would like the volume restored. It will take about 60 to 90 minutes for Dr. Kolstad to artistically distribute the fat grafts. Throughout the grafting process Dr. Kolstad will take several pauses allowing you to view the results in the mirror. Your input will help guide Dr. Kolstad to the appropriate stopping point. By allowing patients to view the real-time results and contribute feedback Dr. Kolstad achieves a high rate of satisfaction and minimizes the risk of adding too much volume.
Fat transfer is most commonly used to add volume throughout the cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and temples.
