Fat Injections

Enhance your features with a technique called LipoStructure®, created by East Coast plastic surgeon Dr. Sydney Coleman and available in California from Dr. Thomas McNemar. LipoStructure is a grafting technique that transplants fat in order to cosmetically enhance the hands, lips, eyes, brow, and face, and even fill in liposuction defects. LipoStructure is excellent for lip augmentation and augmenting facial features.

Fat injections help patients from Modesto, Pleasanton, and surrounding northern California areas enhance and augment areas of the face and hands that appear sunken or thin. Request a Consultation online at Dr. McNemar’s San Ramon or Tracy location and receive $500 off a series of 3 skin resurfacing treatments using Portrait® PSR³, an innovative treatment that can improve on the results of your LipoStructure procedure.

Improvements From Fat Injections

Fine lines and wrinkles, thin lips, and drooping corners of the mouth are all areas that can be aided with fat injections much like with injectable fillers such as Restylane®. Dr. McNemar’s individualized patient care provides safe and effective treatment. Fat injections can provide a variety of improvements, including:

  • Softening facial wrinkles and furrows
  • Enhancing the lip line
  • Slightly raising concave scars

Dr. McNemar also uses fat transfer to enhance and augment the buttocks and breasts.

Combination Treatments for Enhanced Results

Many patients who choose fat injections also consider other non-invasive treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic or skin resurfacing. Others choose to undergo fat injections to complement a surgical treatment like a facelift.

Your Fat Injection Treatment

During the treatment, the patient’s own fat is injected below the skin’s surface to fill hollow areas and creases, or plump the lips and back of the hands. Fat typically is taken from the inner thigh or abdomen using liposuction. These treatments are performed in Dr. McNemar’s office, using local anesthesia where indicated.

Recovery & Results After Fat Injections

Swelling following fat injection treatment usually dissipates in 1 to 2 weeks. Results may last several years or more, depending on the treatment site and individual patient factors.

If you’d like to enhance your features without plastic surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas McNemar offers treatments just for you.
