The 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.

Sun, wind, and cold torment your skin every day. Besides that, with the passing of the years, the body increasingly depletes the production of collagen. As a consequence, the facial skin gets thinner and more flaccid. 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 experienced specialist will inject the small fat deposits under the face of the skin to replenish the lost volume and rejuvenate the skin.
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. Schedule an appointment and let us offer you a consultation. Additionally, you may also use a fat transfer procedure to target nasolabial fold; which means the deepening in the soft tissues, that run on both sides of the nose and the mouth, and enhance your whole face. The cheeks and lips may also acquire volume with a fat transfer procedure, and so be enhanced in a completely natural way.
Between 1 and 1,5 hours.
Generally, the procedure is performed as an ambulatory procedure at Clinic Beethovenstrasse AG in Zurich. You will be sent home on the same day. Depending on the extent of the procedure and your personal preferences, Dr. Colette Carmen Camenisch may also perform the facial rejuvenation procedure in the clinic «Pyramide». How long you will have to stay in the clinic, depends on several factors, which you will discuss in advance with Dr. Colette Carmen Camenisch. Generally, the stationary stay will last 1 to 2 days.
Depending on the extent and complexity of the procedure, 2 to 5 days.
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.
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.
The costs may vary depending on the complexity of the procedure and will be agreed upon in advance.
