What to Expect

Before, During, and After Fat Transfer in Houston

1. Attend a One-on-One Consultation

If you're interested in restoring facial volume through fat transfer to face, you'll first meet with a Heights Plastic Surgery surgeon for a one-on-one consultation. We take the time to get to know you—your goals, medical history, skin type and tone, face shape, and more.

2. Approve Your Treatment Plan.

Dr. Downey and Dr. Bullocks collaborate on every patient case to best advise you on the ideal options for addressing your wrinkles or lack of volume. We build a highly personalized treatment plan that may include a combination of injections, including fat grafts, wrinkle relaxers (like Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin), and dermal fillers to achieve the best possible results.

3. Getting Fat Transferred.

First, your doctor will extract a small amount of fat cells from another area of your body (such as the thigh or abdomen) and 'clean' these cells to ensure the highest quality results. After topically numbing any applicable areas of the face, we will artfully and skillfully inject these cells below the skin to fill fine lines and wrinkles, add volume to loose skin, and/or contour the face. Typically, we can administer fat grafts to all of your treatment areas in a single session.

4. Follow Up.

Following your fat transfer to face Houston plastic surgeons can schedule you for follow-up injections or any other complementary procedures you'd like to opt for to enhance the effects of your initial appointment. In most cases, you will notice results immediately following treatment, with final results appearing after swelling has gone down.
