Using your fat to rejuvenate your face sounds like a dream procedure…what’s not to like about this idea? This is what fat transfer, also known as fat augmentation or fat grafting, is all about. The unwanted fat is removed by a liposuction procedure and then processed and carefully injected back into areas of your face that have lost volume as you age. Our guest this week on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today to explain the art of fat transfer is Dr Suzan Obagi, associate Professor of Dermatology at University of Pittsburg. Dr Obagi is interviewed by show host, fellow dermatologist, Dr Barry Lycka and the two doctors discuss what is fat transfer and how it works and the best methods to achieve the best results for patients. Importantly, Dr Obagi gives excellent guidelines as to who are ideal patients for fat transfer, and who are not, and for what reasons. Listen to this interview and get clear and practical advice about using fat transfer to rejuvenate your face.
