Dr. Scott Sattler is an experienced fat transfer surgeon in the Seattle area. Fat transfer injections and autologous fat grafting procedures have become an important cosmetic procedure in our Seattle area clinic. Fat grafting allows us to volumize and restore youthful contours to the face.
How is Fat Transfer injections done ?
The technique involves removing some fat from the neck, tummy or flanks, processing that fat and then carefully placing it in regions of the face to restore volume. A portion of the grafted fat becomes a living and natural filler. Fat transfer injections can be done under local anesthesia in our Seattle clinic.
Are there benefits of Fat Transfer injections over other fillers ?
A unique benefit we have observed with fat grafting is improvement of photo-damaged and wrinkled overlying skin in regions of the face that have received fat grafting.
Note the improvement in skin texture and facial volume after the fat grafting procedure around the eyes.
The fat grafting procedure can be done in our Seattle area office, as a one hour outpatient procedure. Downtime is minimal. Risks include some swelling and bruising in the treated areas.
Who is a good candidate for Fat Transfer Injections ?
Patients that have experienced the benefits of Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse and other facial fillers and desire a filler that is more natural and long-lasting. For these patients, fat grafting has become ‘the ultimate filler’.
Dr. Sattler is one of the most experienced doctors practicing fat grafting techniques in the Pacific Northwest.
