Facial Rejuvenation with Fat Transfer
One of the unfortunate consequences of the aging process is a loss of facial volume. When combined with the development of fine lines wrinkles, this can make you look older than you feel. Fortunately, you can restore lost volume and revitalize your facial appearance with a minimally invasive fat transfer procedure.
Dr. Andre Berger can use fat transfer to achieve the same exceptional results typically delivered by a facelift while helping you avoid the excessive costs and recovery time associated with extensive plastic surgery. The best way to find out if fat transfer is the right facial rejuvenation option for you is to speak with Dr. Berger in person. Please call 310.856.9173 today to schedule a consultation at our Beverly Hills office.
How Does Fat Transfer Work?
Your fat transfer procedure is performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia and takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete. Dr. Berger will use liposuction to remove fat from a donor area such as the buttocks, abdomen, or thighs. This fat is then purified and injected into the treatment region to restore a more youthful appearance.
Dr. Berger often recommends fat transfer to rejuvenate:
- Sunken temples
- Hollow cheeks
- Sunken eyes
- Deep smile and frown lines
- Thin lips
- Skin depressions
- Acne and trauma scars
There is no recovery or downtime, and you will achieve natural results that last many years. In some instances, it may take more than one treatment to achieve your desired results.

Stem Cell Enhanced Fat Transfer
Dr. Berger always uses the most advanced techniques available to ensure you receive the best possible results. He is able to enhance your fat transfer procedure by using “stem cells” in the process. The stem cells used are naturally occurring regenerative cells contained within your own natural fat. They improve the effectiveness of fat transfer by increasing the natural blood supply to the treatment area.
The use of a stem cell-enriched fat transfer procedure offers the following benefits:
- Grows new blood vessels to nourish the fat
- Releases anti-inflammatory agents to aid healing
- Generates and releases growth factors that tighten and rejuvenate skin
You can achieve excellent results with your fat transfer procedure. By adding stem cells to the process, you can reap even more benefits.
For both stem cell-enriched and traditional fat transfer, Dr. Berger often recommends many options to help reduce bruising at the injection site. Bruising is not uncommon following fat transfer and can interfere with results until it subsides. During your initial consultation Dr. Berger will discuss the remedies to avoid bruising and swelling and help speed this process and help ensure pleasing results in the shortest time possible.
