Fat transfer for rejuvenation of the face (also known as facial fat grafting) sounds too good to be true: move the fat from places you don’t want it to places you do. Yet Grand Rapids plastic surgeon Dr. Bradley Bengtson specializes in just that, combining gentle liposuction, highly skilled injection techniques, and his natural “eye” for aesthetics. The end result? Smoothed contours on your body and replenished volume in your face, creating a more beautiful you from head to toe!
Facial fat grafting is available for Grand Rapids, Birmingham, and Detroit area residents at the Bengtson Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery. A minimally invasive procedure, fat transfer for the face is performed under local anesthesia, involving little to no downtime. Because the procedure uses autologous (your own) fat as the filler material, you have no risk of rejection or allergic reaction, and the end result looks natural and lasts longer than most currently available dermal fillers. Fillers may also be layered or used in conjunction with your fat to improve finer, more superficial lines. It’s the natural way to a more youthful you!
