Fat Grafting in Miami, FL
Average Cost: From $12,700
Here at The Maercks Institute, we are committed to improving our patient’s lives with cosmetic procedures that truly make a difference in the way you look. We offer stem cell and fat graft transplantation based rejuvenation of the skin to create a fuller, more youthful-looking face for every patient.
Dr. Maercks uses the patient’s own fatty tissue to fill the face and remove folds and wrinkles. The skin’s outer appearance is further rejuvenated because of natural growth factors and stem cells. The face is reshaped to your ideal look without changing the base of the original look so your appearance doesn’t drastically change.
Fat grafting is not for treating fine lines, and is ideal for deep volume enhancement in the face tissue. Good candidates are those with depressed scars, deep skin folds or hollowness in the face.
How it Works
There are three basic steps to the procedure.
- Liposuction removal of fat
- Fat preparation
Tiny blood vessels are formed by the stem and fat cells, making a fat graft a more permanent option for a changed appearance. Fat grafting can put off the need for more complex cosmetic surgery for years or even decades.
Along with fat grafting, Dr. Maercks offers several techniques that can aid in the fight against lines, folds, scars, contour depressions or wrinkles. Our injectable filler products can quickly reduce wrinkles of folds that advertise your age. The benefit of fat grafting over these injectable treatments it that fat grafting does not require return treatments.
Stitches are not typically needed after fat grafting, and the procedure requires minimal post-treatment care. Patients often experience minor bruising, swelling or changes to sensation in the treatment area for several weeks. After the side effects completely subside, patients start to really notice their results. Dr. Maercks recommends that you wait several weeks to determine if your procedure created the optimal look for your face.
