Adipose Transfer With PRP Yielding Amazing Results in Facial Recontouring

Posted at 9:56 AM on May 15, 2018


You’ve worked all your life to take care of your face, by staying out of the sun and avoiding tobacco, unhealthy foods and alcohol. However, no matter what you’ve done, small wrinkles and hollowed out areas are starting appear around your cheeks, chin, lips, and jaw.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, about 120,000 invasive facelifts are performed each year in the United States. While many patients see amazing results that can leave them looking healthier and younger, invasive facelifts are fraught with potential complications, extended healing times and scarring.

Today, an increasing amount of patients are turning to less-costly alternatives like Adipose (or Fat Transfer) and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections to achieve similar results with fewer complications and after effects. The very latest in these alternative procedures combines the world of adipose fat transfers with PRP.

What is Adipose Transfer?

Adipose transfer (or fat transfer) is a relatively new procedure in which a patient’s own body fat is extracted and injected into trouble spots around the face to re-contour the surface. This procedure produces enhanced definition in the cheeks, chin, lips, and jaw.

Darkness and sunkenness around the eyes and in the cheeks also respond well to this procedure. Patients with lifelong acne scars can also see huge improvement or elimination of the scarring with adipose transfer.

What is PRP Treatment?

PRP therapy injects a patient’s own blood platelets that are rich in growth factors into treatment areas. This procedure is sometimes known as the Vampire Facial when used on the face. PRP facials alone have shown positive results in:

  • Smoother skin texture
  • Lessening of fine lines
  • Diminishing pore size
  • Increased vibrancy in the skin

Combining Adipose Transfer with PRP

Combining adipose transfer with PRP is showing even better results over PRP therapy or adipose transfer alone. At Twin Cities Pain & Regenerative Medicine we are seeing amazing outcomes with a group of patients that have undergone this procedure.

The photos of our patients in this article are proof of the effectiveness of adipose transfer with PRP therapy. You’ll notice a natural sculpting of the face and the return of a more glowing, healthy and youthful appearance around the mouth, under the eyes and around the nose.
