“In October 2008, [Dr. Armstrong] transferred unwanted fat from my belly to replace long lost baby fat in my cheeks. A month later he performed a mini-facelift in his office with local anesthesia only. In less than a week, I was able to apply makeup and feel comfortable in public.”
-Barbara Slayton, a 75 year old patient of Mike Armstrong, MD
Liposuction is performed to reduce specific pockets of fat in the lower face and neck. Even patients as young as twenty will notice pockets of fat in the neck or jowls but simply won’t respond to diet and exercise liposuction can help you to sculpt the neck and jaw line making you appear younger and swimmer.
Fat transfer is used to build up areas of thinning in the upper and middle face. Fat is collected from other parts of the body, often by liposuction, and then injected into the face to add volume. Fat provides a more permanent solution to facial volume loss when compared to commercial fillers.
