Fat Grafting Naturally Fills and Regenerates

Are you seeking a natural beauty enhancement without using synthetic fillers or implants to smooth wrinkles and add volume that can last for years and is minimally invasive?

If so, then fat grafting may be the perfect solution for you!

Symbios Medical Spa expertly performs this advanced technique by harvesting your body’s fat and purifying it in our state-of-the-art centrifuge. After ensuring the fat’s vitality, small amounts of the concentrated fat, rich in stem cells, are expertly injected into pre-selected areas of your face, such as cheeks, under-eye areas, lips, and jawline.

The high-quality fat cells not only fill in crevices and lift cheeks for a more contoured appearance, but also nourish and regenerate your skin’s tone and texture for healthy, natural, and long-lasting results.

What is Fat Grafting?

Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer or lipofilling, is a cosmetic procedure that involves transferring fat from one part of your body to the face. This technique (also known as the Coleman technique) has evolved to ensure the highest retention because it uses your body’s tissues to enhance areas that have lost volume due to aging, weight loss, or other factors. The procedure includes:

  • Harvesting: Fat is removed from a predetermined area of your body, such as the abdomen or thighs through liposuction or syringes to minimize invasiveness.
  • Purification: The harvested fat is then purified in a centrifuge. This process separates pure fat from unwanted components like oil, blood, and anesthetic to prepare it for injection.
  • Injection: The purified fat is carefully injected into the desired area in small amounts and at varying depths to enhance integration and ensure smooth, natural-looking results.

The Benefits of Fat Grafting

One of the primary advantages of fat grafting is that it provides a natural enhancement without synthetic fillers or implants. Some of its additional benefits include:

  • Skin Quality Improvement: The presence of fat and stem cells can improve the texture and color of the overlying skin for:
    • Reduced wrinkling
    • Smaller pores
    • Improved skin color
    • Thicker, healthier-looking skin
    • Smoother, more even skin surface
  • Natural Look and Feel: Fat grafting can maintain natural facial expressions because the procedure uses fat to replace lost volume.
  • Minimally Invasive: Fat grafting is less invasive than traditional surgical procedures, with smaller incisions and reduced recovery times.
  • Long-Lasting Results: The results of fat grafting can last for many years as the transferred fat cells establish a new blood supply in the recipient area.
  • Dual Benefits: Not only do you enhance the target area, but you also benefit from body contouring in the donor area where the fat was harvested.
