Natural Facial Enhancement – Fat Transfer in Madison
Fat transfer is one of the most versatile cosmetic procedures: from augmenting the cheeks to recontouring the entire face, this minimally invasive procedure offers a variety of benefits. Many choose fat transfer to delay the need for a facelift, while others simply 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 can be completely customized to your desired aesthetic, whether you’d like subtle enhancements or a more dramatic transformation. And best of all, the procedure uses fat from your own body, so no implants or synthetic substances are required.

She is proud to bring this level of expertise to patients. You deserve the care and treatment of a true expert – achieve a naturally rejuvenated appearance with fat transfer to the face at Aria DermSpa.
Facial Fat Transfer: How It Works
This procedure is sometimes called fat grafting and is an innovative process that uses the patient’s own fat to restore facial volume. The procedure is usually performed in three steps:
At your consultation, Dr. Donofrio will identify areas of your body that will serve as a potential donor site(s) where fat will be removed, such as the abdomen or thighs. During your fat transfer procedure, Dr. Donofrio will remove fat from these sites using a gentle liposuction technique. The incision required for this step will be very small, and Dr. Donofrio takes great care to make incisions in areas that are naturally concealed.
After the necessary amount of fat is removed, it is prepared for transfer. The fat is typically processed using a centrifuge, which separates the fat from other fluids. The pure, healthy fat cells are then isolated and extracted.
Once the fat has been processed and purified, it is ready for transfer. A cannula will be inserted through a tiny incision to transfer the fat to the desired area. Fat is gradually transferred until the ideal amount of volume is achieved.
Is Fat Grafting Right for You?
Perhaps you’ve been bothered by the appearance of folds and wrinkles on your face or maybe you feel that certain areas of your face lack ideal volume. In either case, natural facial augmentation with 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:
Fat transfer to the face can fill in under-eye areas, restore a youthful jawline or cheek curve and provide a subtle lift to areas 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, such as deep acne scars.
Facial fat grafting is commonly used to enhance features that are lacking in ideal volume, like the cheeks and jaw. With the right distribution of subcutaneous facial fat, your features will look even, balanced, and sculpted.

Frequently Asked Questions
It depends on your cosmetic goals, but for optimal results, a series of 4-6 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.
