What is Facial Fat Transfer?
Dr. Vanek harvests natural fat cells through a gentle liposuction process. These cells are then carefully injected into areas where you want to smooth wrinkles and creases, improve contouring, plump up volume, or add youthful fullness. More>>

This Cleveland area woman is 81 years old and she didn’t like the fact that her face looked tired, drawn and that her appearance made her look so fatigued and aged. She and I discussed recovery for her eyelids, a brow lift, a face and neck lift as well as fat transfer to restore some of her volume losses. She is seen here postoperatively 18 months after her procedure. She underwent an endoscopic brow lift, a lower lid blepharoplasty, a bilateral canthopexy and a SMAS face lift, a neck lift with corset platysmaplasty and autologous Coleman fat transfer to lips and face. The patient and I have spoken about her recovery. She did have some laxity of skin that was quite severe. She underwent surgical recovery. She traveled shortly after her surgery to go see her son and returned to see me for her suture removal. I surveyed her over the next few months and she is very happy with the restoration of her facial volume and her lip enhancement from autologous fat has a long term result here seen at 18 months postoperatively. Her face and neck contours as well as her brow position look very natural and rested.
