Fat Transfer

Do you need facial fillers (Restlylane, Juvederm, Voluma, Sculptra artifill, etc.) but desire something more natural? How about your own fat?

Dr. O’Neil gently removes 10-20 cc of your fat and emulsifies it for injection into your face. Areas that are suitable for fat transfer include cheeks, nasolabial folds, mouth commisures (folds), jowls, and temples.

The whole treatment takes less than an hour and is an “out patient” procedure done with local anesthesia. The main side effect is bruising which usually resolves in 2 weeks. There is no post treatment pain and results are immediate. There is no “down time”.

Fat transfer fillers have 2 advantages. Longer lasting results and, if you are treating multiple areas, much lower cost.

The cost for fat injection into the face is $2000. Treating multiple areas with Juvederm, Restlylane, or Voluma could cost $3000 to $4000 and they need to be repeated every 1 to 2 years. If treatment of only 1 or 2 areas is necessary, it is more cost effective to use fillers like Restlylane or Juvederm.

Other areas that can be treated with fat transfer at the O’Neil clinic are buttocks, breasts, and hands.
