Fat Transfer Injections in Nashville, TN

Among the latest and most exciting developments in cosmetic treatments is fat transfer injections, an advanced injectable treatment that uses fat from your own body to add volume and diminish lines and wrinkles, and other visible signs of aging. Dr. Morgan Moor, a regenerative and restorative medicine specialist with an office conveniently located in Brentwood, provides this procedure for patients in Nashville, Franklin and the surrounding communities of Tennessee.

What Are Fat Transfer Injections?

Fat transfer injection, also known as microlipoinjection, is an advanced treatment that uses fat from your own body to enhance areas of the face and breast by adding fullness and volume. The fat may be transferred from stubborn problem areas and used to enhance facial contours, restore definition in the cheeks, add fullness and volume to the lips and fill in lines and wrinkles.

Benefits of Fat Transfer Injections

Fat transfer injections are gaining widespread popularity because the procedure provides a host of benefits, including the following:

  • Restores facial youthfulness without plastic surgery
  • Proven safe and effective
  • No risk of allergic reaction because your own fat is used
  • Safe, quick outpatient procedure
  • No recovery or downtime needed

Who Is a Good Candidate for Fat Transfer Injections?

Healthy adults who want to reverse the signs of aging without resorting to plastic surgery often seek out fat transfer injections. Dr. Moor also recommends the procedure for younger patients who wish to enhance facial contours and diminish the appearance of acne scars or other slight imperfections in the face. Fat transfer injections are also useful to treat a loss of facial volume and definition and eliminate common wrinkles, creases, lines and folds, including:

  • Marionette lines, frown lines, laugh lines and smoker’s lines
  • Wrinkles, folds, creases and lines between the eyebrows and across the forehead
  • Loss of volume, fullness, firmness and definition in the cheekbones
  • Loss of volume, fullness and definition in the lips and around the mouth
  • Acne scars or other slight skin imperfections
  • Loss of volume under the eyes
  • Sagging and aging breasts

How Should I Prepare For Fat Transfer Injections?

There is very little risk associated with fat transfer because the procedure uses fat from your own body to enhance facial volume and contour. Although no special preparation is required for this procedure, be sure to inform Dr. Moor if you have received any other injections in the past four months, if you’re taking any medications, such as aspirin and other blood thinners, allergy medications, sleep aids, NSAID or muscle relaxers, and if you have any type of skin condition, such as a rash or infection.

How Are Fat Transfer Injections Administered?

Fat transfer injections are administered in three steps, and Dr. Moor will provide a sedative or local anesthesia to ensure your total comfort during the procedure.

Step 1: Fat is extracted from an area of the body using mini-liposuction. The most common sites from which to extract the fat are the abdomen, buttocks, and inner thighs. As an added benefit, the extraction of this fat may also improve the contours of the harvest site areas by removing unsightly fatty deposits.

Step 2: The harvested tissue is allowed to settle and separate, and fat cells are isolated.

Step 3: The fat cells are injected into the targeted facial area using a very fine-gauge needle. Dr. Moor carefully and precisely chooses the precise injection sites to enhance the contours and skin volume of your face.

You will see visible results immediately following the procedure. About one-half of patients may require a follow-up treatment because the body absorbs the transplanted fat.

How Much Do Fat Transfer Injections Cost In Nashville?

Health insurance does not typically cover elective cosmetic procedures so your carrier may not cover fat transfer injections. To keep treatments affordable for a wide range of patients, Dr. Moor’s office provides flexible financing  methods and accepts cash, personal checks and credit cards as forms of payment.
