Why Choose Fat Injections?
When we think of fat, we usually want to get rid of it. But, fat is essential to our well-being. It is used as a backup energy source by the body, helping to protect vital organs, regulate temperature, and absorb vitamins. Fat is also a great resource for creating volume in the face which is lost through aging. Common areas that benefit from Fat Injections are the upper and lower eyes, temporal hollows, cheeks, the area under the cheeks, naso-labial folds, lips, marionette lines, the chin and the jaw line. Fat Injections can also be used to create volume in the breasts, buttocks, and hands.
What are Fat Injections?
The fat is “harvested” comfortably from the by gentle liposuction from an area where there are fat deposits. A portion of the harvested fat is then prepared for more superficial placement in the tissue. This technique is called SNIF (Sharp Needle Intra-Dermal) injection. This super smooth fat can be injected like a dermal filler to help smooth and improve more superficial lines of the face, especially around the naso-labial folds and peri-oral lines. Fat Injections not only fill out lines and wrinkles in the face but also offers improvement for pigmentation and sun damage to the skin.
Another popular application for Fat Injections is the Non-Surgical Facelift. The Non-Surgical Facelift utilizes the combination of Botox®, Dermal Fillers or Fat Injection to sculpt and soften the contours of aging without surgery with very dramatic results.
How we are different.
Traditional methods for harvesting fat uses liposuction can result in bruising and discomfort. Dr. Richard Bensimon, however, has developed the Bensimon Micro Sculptor™ to gently remove fat without incisions or leaving marks. The Bensimon Micro Sculptor™ enables him to control the fat particle size and lessen tissue trauma so patients do not experience pain or bruising.
The Bensimon Micro Sculptor™ is a little, wand-like tool that is used to contour parts of the body. Because the wand is so small Dr. Bensimon is able to target troublesome spots and artistically sculpt the areas needing change. Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL), is a wonderful improvement to enhance this technique. Instead of relying on the surgeon’s hand to move the Liposuction tool, the Bensimon Micro Sculptor™ uses a powered handle that quickly and gently assists the “back and forth” motion. PAL is gentler on your tissues and is a more effective way of removing the fat and allows for a more complete result.
Dr. Bensimon’s invention helps ensure a superior quality to this procedure. He has over 20 years of fat injecting experience and his results are refined and long lasting. The newest advance in fat grafting is the introduction of “Nano-Fat.” Nano-fat preparation removes the fat cell wall leaving the adipose derived stem cells. This rich, gold colored liquid is an exciting new concept that adds volume to the body but also noticeably improves skin texture.
