FAT GRAFTING BENEFITS
FAT GRAFTING PROCEDURE DETAILS
Dr. Green customizes each facial fat transfer to the specific requests of the patient. With precise technique and an artistic eye, he creates natural and attractive contours for both the face and the area from which the fat is borrowed. Fat grafting has three main components: harvesting, purifying and injecting.
FAT GRAFTING RECOVERY AND RESULTS
While recovery from facial fat grafting is less intense than other forms of plastic surgery, most patients still take one to two weeks off from work to prioritize rest and allow the swelling and bruising to subside.
Not all fat cells survive the transfer process, so patients should wait several months to assess the final results. Fortunately, most of the fat does survive because the body recognizes its own cells, allowing them to be absorbed and thrive in the face.
FAT GRAFTING COSTS
The price of facial fat grafting ultimately depends on the amount of fat being transferred and the areas where fat is extracted from and transferred to. Dr. Green can discuss total costs (include anesthesia and facility fees) during a consultation after learning the patient’s expectations. Because fat transfer is an elective procedure, it is not covered by insurance plans, though Dr. Green’s office does accept financing options through M-Lend Financial Services and CareCredit.
The Art of Plastic Surgery
Surgical skill can be learned, but surgical artistry is something a person must be born with. Dr. Scott Green has the inherent aesthetic and anatomical understanding necessary to deliver results of utmost transcendence to all of his patients. By applying his irrefutable grasp of beauty and state-of-the-art surgical techniques, Dr. Green sculpts his patients’ contours for the most dazzling and customized outcome.
