Facial volume loss can give your face an aged and withered appearance. It causes wrinkles and folds to form and can give areas like your cheeks and eyes a sunken appearance. Although you can’t stop the aging process, you can restore lost facial volume with a technique known as fat transfer to the face.

The procedure involves harvesting fat from one area of your body, typically your abdomen or thighs, and injecting it into your face to restore volume. The fat is purified by placing it in a centrifuge that will rapidly spin and separate it from any bodily fluids. The purified fat can be safely injected into the desired area of the face.
