Your body’s own fat can be used as a natural filler in seemingly countless ways. Dr. Wolin is one of North America’s foremost experts in the field of fat grafting, and specializes in both awake and more invasive fat transfer procedures (requiring anesthesia). With nearly 20 years of experience in the science of fat transfer, Dr. Wolin is one of the most experienced plastic surgeons when it comes to this “art meets science” technique.
Fat is gently suctioned out of your unwanted “problem areas” and refined, before being re-injected into parts of the body that are in need of a more fuller youthful appearance.
Fat transfer procedures can be performed in our office with little to no need for anesthetic, or can be performed as part of a more compressive plastic surgery procedure in a operating room setting.
Fat grafting is an excellent way that both male and female patients alike can get a more permanent result for both facial and body rejuvenation.
Many patients elect to undergo the fat transfer procedure with local anesthesia and nitrous oxide. You might be familiar with nitrous oxide (or laughing gas) from the dentist’s office if you’ve undergone dental surgery. At Wolin Plastic Surgery Center, we now offer nitrous oxide with local anesthesia for our fat transfer procedures. We continually strive to make your experience as comfortable as possible. If you have anxiety about medical procedures or a phobia about needles, we will do our best to guarantee you have the most relaxed procedure possible.
