The biggest culprit of lost facial volume is the loss and/or sagging of facial fat. As we age, we lose the fat which helps supply shape to our face. We lose our facial contours and hollows begin to appear around the temples and cheeks. Treatment options are available at Cutis to restore lost facial contour and boost dimension. Facial fat transfer (also known as fat grafting) can refresh and rejuvenate lost facial volume boosting dimension and self-confidence. This unique combination of Vaserlipo and injection is performed by Cutis’ Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Ron Lemckert, ENT. Under the exceptional care of Dr. Lemckert, our patients are treated to all the latest techniques and applications in facial rejuvenation.

As a cosmetic surgery centre, Cutis is equipped in providing the highest level of care and safety to our patients. During a consultation with Cutis' Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Ron Lemckert, ENT, a general health assessment will be made to ensure treatment suitability.

Bruising, redness and swelling will be present for the first three to four days post-treatment with reduction by end of day seven. Ice packs are recommended for 24-48 hours following treatment to reduce swelling. Effective pain management will be discussed and prescribed prior to treatment. Avoiding strenuous activity, massage and excessive facial animation is advised. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled between six to eight weeks post-treatment to assess results.
How It Works
Operating the Tulip Fat Transfer System—the gold standard in fat transfer—the treatment begins with Vaserlipo (suction-assisted fat removal) from areas of the body where excess fat can be harvested. The removed fat is then filtered and prepared for grafting. Fat transfer is administered through injections of the targeted areas.
