No other substance is more easily accepted by your body than your own natural fat. Facial fat transfer procedures are becoming a popular option for many patients. This facial rejuvenation treatment is safe, and can produce beautiful results. Fat extracted from an area of your body with excess deposits is purified and then skillfully injected into the facial area with lost volume, such as cheeks or temples. If your face has lost the firm look of your younger years, find out more about our Seattle fat transfer techniques and how this process can help you restore a more youthful look to your face without injecting a synthetic substance. Fat transfer is also effective for other areas of the body.


Anti-Aging Treatments with Fat Transfer

Your facial skin is often the first area to show the signs of aging. This area is always exposed to the elements, including sun, wind, rain, heat, and cold – all of which are common in Seattle. As the facial skin is impacted by the elements, the skin begins to lose flexibility and its supple quality, drifting down, creating sagging cheeks or a gaunt, tired appearance. Our fat transfer in Seattle procedure can restore and rejuvenate your face or lips – or both – with the use of your own natural fat to produce a younger, fresher look and restoring lost volume. The results are subtle, leaving you looking more vital – and as young as you feel.

Fat Injection Procedure Description:

  • This outpatient procedure is performed under general anesthesia.
  • Fatty tissue is harvested in a non-traumatic fashion from appropriate areas such as the inner thighs or lower abdomen. The amount of fat that is removed creates a secondary slimming effect.
  • The fat is then prepared and purified by first centrifuging it in a special medical device.
  • Small (1-2 millimeter) incisions are placed in strategic areas; specialized cannulas are used to microinject fatty cells into multiple layers in the appropriate area. This dramatic technique makes it possible for the fat cells to become viable, and part of your body, plumping out the problem areas.

Practice policy update for Coronavirus (Covid-19):

Updated May 5, 2020

As previously stated, we are pleased to announce the opening of our practice May 19,2020. Our clinic, operating facility, skin care and noninvasive center (ENIC) will resume their full activity.

We know that so much of this has caused inconvenience for you. We want nothing more than to see our patients and resume what we do best. But we also know that we had to be patient and make sure that the timing is right.

We know clearly well that our work ahead is an important one. For over two decades we have considered safety as our most important prerogative. And, there has never been a more important time to put that to use.

As we stage the comeback of our States businesses and our own practice, we clearly understand that we must do everything in our power to ensure the safety of our patient, and our staff.

We also ask for your patience in the rescheduling process. Without any exception our patients have been kind, gracious and understanding. We sincerely appreciate your indulgence in this very difficult time.

Here is some of what we are doing to ensure that you are protected and that we maintain this facility as a Non-Covid Care (NCC) Zone:

Patient Flow and Clinical office Space

  • We are assigning everyone to hourly wipe downs of high use areas with approved sanitizing wipes.
  • We are asking for no one to wait in the waiting area.
  • We are coming up with protocols for room wipe downs after each patient visit.

  • We will ask staff to change out of their clothing into scrubs. Jackets for front office are being ordered.
  • Every staff will always wear masks while in the office.

  • All circuits will be changed between each patient.

As you can see, we are taking this very seriously. We fully understand that this will cause some inconvenience in the short term but realize that it is for the best.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.

We know well that when you see us in action, you will realize that you have put your trust in the right practice.
