Are you beginning to lose volume in your face?
Would you like a natural solution for a more contoured facial appearance? If so, it might be time to discover minimally-invasive fat injections at Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.
How Do Fat Injections Work?
Used in conjunction with a Facelift and other facial procedures, fat injections help erase wrinkles and correct sunken areas on the face. Many patients love the procedure because they’re able to address two aesthetic concerns with one in-office procedure. Fat transfer injections are done in a simple 3-step process.
- Fat is harvested via thin cannula tubes.
- The fat is then prepared by Dr. Craig.
- Fat injections are placed at precise depths for adding volume.
Dr. Craig is a board-certified surgeon and doctor who regularly performs fat injection procedures. He uses advanced methods for ensuring a high survival rate for fat cells during removal for maximum results. His patients often see long-lasting results as fat cells begin to mimic the surrounding tissue at the injection site.

Am I a Good Candidate for Fat Injections?
You may be a good fit for fat injections if you’ve lost key volume in your face and want to restore a naturally youthful appearance. Fat grafting is best suited for healthy non-smoking adults. The ideal candidate for the procedure will have an area on their body where excess fat can be harvested such as;
Whether it’s sunken cheeks, under-eye hollows, or unwanted facial wrinkles, fat grafting can help. Because fat injections use your own tissue, the risk for allergic reaction or potential complications are minimal.
Fat injections can also be combined with breast reconstruction to add more soft tissue and to camouflage or contour deformities. Speak with Dr. Craig about what’s right for you at the time of your in-person consultation.
How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?
The entire procedure can take about 2-hours, which includes the time it takes to harvest fat, cleanse it, and inject it back into the treatment area. Fat grafting is not a procedure that can be rushed so patients should plan an adequate amount of time in their day for treatment.

What Results Will I See?*
Initial results can be seen right away. Wrinkles will be softer in appearance, and volume will be restored to the cheeks or under-eye area. Continued improvement will gradually occur over the course of several weeks.
Although Dr. Craig does what he can to ensure a high survival rate for fat cells, some will not make it through the harvesting process. Dr. Craig accounts for this when injecting and adds slightly more cells than necessary. Final results can be seen 1-2 months post-treatment as swelling subsides and dead fat cells are flushed from the body.
Is There Any Downtime?
Fat grafting appeals to many patients because it’s minimally-invasive and does not require any facial incisions. Many patients choose to get back to their routine within 24-hours, while others prefer to take a few days for rest and relaxation. The majority of swelling should subside within 1-2 weeks.
