Fat Injections are quickly becoming as popular as fillers and as a more natural and longer lasting option, it’s easy to see why. As one of Australia’s most prominent and highly regarded plastic surgeons, Dr Bryan Mendelson and his skin clinic are always at the forefront of the industry. They say fat injections in Melbourne are in demand and can be used in conjunction with other procedures such as facelifts; or as a stand alone procedure to restore volume to the ageing face. We asked Dr Mendelson’s team why fat injections are such a great alternative to traditional fillers.
What are fat injections?
Fat is removed from other areas on your body such as your abdomen or thighs via a liposuction-type procedure, washed and purified, and then injected into those areas on your face that will benefit from some filling. The patient coordinator from Dr Mendelson’s clinic says, “Fat injections can restore a look of good health by replenishing attractive curves and roundness to areas that look thin or gaunt. They can polish the result of other surgery, such as a facelift or eyelid surgery, but must always be used sparingly and only where needed.”

How do fat injections compare to fillers?
As with most procedures and treatments different patients have different preferences and need to identify what is right for them. We take a look at some of the pros of fat injections.
Fat injections in the face are a great option for anyone looking for a less invasive option to rejuvenate and contour an ageing face, and they are also extremely effective to enhance other procedures.
