Natural Facial Enhancement – Fat Transfer in Madison
Fat transfer is one of the most versatile cosmetic procedures. It is a minimally invasive process that offers a variety of benefits, from augmenting the cheeks to recontouring the entire face. Many choose a facial fat transfer to postpone the need for a facelift, while others want to restore youthful fullness to areas of the face lacking in volume, like the cheeks, jaw, and temples.
The beauty of this procedure is that it is fully customizable to your desired aesthetic needs, whether you’d like subtle enhancements or a more dramatic transformation. And best of all, the procedure uses fat from your body, so it doesn’t require any implants or synthetic substances.
Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Lisa Donofrio of Aria DermSpa has performed over 10,000 fat transfer procedures and is a world expert in this procedure. She is proud to bring this level of expertise to patients. You deserve the care and treatment of a board-certified dermatologist—to achieve a natural rejuvenation by way of a facial fat transfer at Aria DermSpa.

Facial Fat Transfer: How It Works
This innovative procedure, also known as fat grafting, uses the patient’s natural fat to restore facial volume. Dr. Donofrio performs the facial fat transfer in three steps.
At your consultation, Dr. Donofrio will identify areas of your body, like the abdomen or the thighs, that will serve as a potential donor site to extract living fat tissue. During your fat transfer procedure, she will remove fat from these sites using a gentle liposuction technique. The incision required for this step is tiny, and Dr. Donofrio will make the incision in a discreet area to conceal it from view.
After she removes the necessary amount of fat, Dr. Donofrio will prepare it for transfer. We process the fat through a specialized centrifuge, which separates the fat from other fluids to isolate and extract pure, healthy fat cells.
Having processed and purified the fat, Dr. Donofrio is ready to transfer it. She will insert a thin tube called a cannula through a tiny incision to deliver fat to the target site. Dr. Donofrio will then gradually transfer this fat until she has achieved the ideal amount of volume.
Is Fat Grafting Right for You?
Perhaps the appearance of folds and wrinkles on your face have been troubling you, or maybe you feel certain areas of your face lack ideal volume. In either case, natural augmentation with a facial fat transfer can effectively treat these and other cosmetic concerns.
Fat transfer is a minimally invasive procedure, making it an excellent option for most healthy men and women. It is highly versatile and can provide the following benefits.
Dr. Donofrio commonly uses facial fat transfer to enhance features that are lacking in ideal volumes, like the cheeks and jawline. With the right distribution of subcutaneous facial fat, your features will look even, balanced, and sculpted.
Facial fat transfer can fill in undereye areas, restore a youthful jawline or cheek curve, and provide a subtle lift to specific sites that have started to droop. When injected into the temple and forehead area, fat transfer can lift and reposition the brow. Fat transfer can also help with surface irregularities, like deep acne scars.

Frequently Asked Questions
It depends on your cosmetic goals, but for optimal results, a series of four to six treatments scheduled a few months apart is recommended for most patients.
After treatment, not all the transferred fat cells will survive. For this reason, many patients choose to have additional procedures until the ideal volume is achieved in the treated area.
The incisions made during a fat transfer procedure are tiny because they only need to accommodate a thin cannula. Most incisions are also made within natural creases of your body so that they are hidden once healed. The vast majority of scars will be hardly visible.
Healthy fat cells that survive transfer establish a blood supply in the treated area and stay there indefinitely. The transferred fat will continue to age naturally with the rest of your face, so if you experience a loss of volume over time, you can maintain your results with an additional fat transfer procedure.
