Facial rejuvenation with fat transfer

Look younger thanks to facial rejuvenation with fat transfer

Our face is vexed by numerous environmental factors, but age is probably the most influencing factor: the skin will become thinner and more flaccid, and it will develop more and more wrinkles. If you wish to look younger, you should consider a facial rejuvenation. In this procedure, the patient's own fat will be transferred to the skin of the face.

Cold, sun, and wind torment your skin every day. Besides that, with the passing of the years, the body increasingly depletes the production of collagen. Those who wish to look younger should, therefore, consider a facial rejuvenation.

In applying this method,  Dr. Colette Carmen Camenisch will aspirate the necessary adipose tissues from the abdomen, the hips, or the knee - the scars will be nearly invisible. Subsequently, the fat will be prepared with a special process so that it can be inserted back into the body. The prepared fat will be injected under the skin to replenish the lost volume and rejuvenate the skin.

A facial rejuvenation will give you back the volume lost with age

The process is referred to as "fat transfer" and is a similar process to the breast augmentation with fat transfer. How much adipose tissue may be injected in the skin of your face depends on the condition of your skin and will be determined in a consultation visit.

Facial areas such as the nasolabial fold, which runs along both sides of the noses downwards to the mouth corners, may also be significantly improved. The cheeks, the area of the mouth and the lips may be treated with a fat transfer procedure, and therefore enhanced in a completely natural way.

Facial rejuvenation with fat transfer - what you need to know
  • Duration of the procedure

    Between 1 and 1,5 hours.

  • Hospitalization

    Generally, the procedure is performed as an ambulatory procedure at Clinic Beethoven­strasse AG in Zurich. You will be sent home on the same day.

  • Anesthesia
    For a fat transfer procedure from the body to the face, a general anesthesia will be necessary.
  • Sick leave

    Depending on the extent and complexity of the procedure, 1 to max. 5 days.

  • Postoperative treatment

    The postoperative treatment after a facial rejuvenation depends on the type and extent of the procedure. Generally, a recovery period of 7 to 10 days is needed. During this time you must avoid practicing intensive sports activities.

    Since only 70 to 80 % of the adipose cells will survive a fat transfer, to achieve the perfect result, under certain circumstances, a follow-up procedure may be necessary after 9 to 12 months.

  • Risks

    A facial rejuvenation with fat transfer may cause infections, local hemorrhages and blue spots (hematomas), swellings, temporary somatosensory disorders to the areas from which the fat was extracted, and slight asymmetries.

  • Costs

    The costs may vary depending on the complexity of the procedure and will be agreed upon in advance.
