What is facial fat transfer?
Refining Beauty is excited to offer facial fat grafting with the premier BeautiFill® system by Alma. This treatment is designed to enhance specific areas on the face that have lost fullness. With aging, our natural facial features can start to lose fat, causing a deflated-looking appearance. This phenomenon can cause you to look tired, angry, or older than your actual age. With a facial fat transfer, youthful volume can be restored and help reduce other cosmetic flaws, like wrinkles, fine lines, scars, and deep depressions. To elevate your aesthetic without significant downtime, a facial fat transfer can be an excellent solution. Contact our med spa in Midlothian, TX today to learn more. James Leffingwell, M.D. will be happy to discuss your concerns and build a custom treatment plan that is unique to you.
"I originally started with Cross Timbers for my husband’s tonsils and allergies. Then again for my daughters tongue tie. All of these were done with Dr. Luke Shellenberger (at the Mansfield office.) In talking with the staff I found out they have a 🗣 MEDSPA at the midlothian office! The ball has not been dropped on ANY level with this practice. At the Midlothian office the receptionist Angela is on her A game ALWAYS! Dr. L is a hoot and a fantastic dr! I went in there originally for Botox. I had Becky and Rebecca in there assisting him (both nurses and fun personalities) which was VERY nice and comforting. Most medspas do NOT have nurses, some places they’re not even MA’s which is ridiculous. After Botox I started doing other things to help with my face because I didn’t want fillers, so they gave me some other options. His Medspa “guru” (as I like to call her) is nurse Rebecca. She is so informative through the whole process and aftercare. EXCELLENT bedside manner. So far I’ve done Opus (which is plasma), Clearlift, and Harmony. I haven’t been disappointed with any of these results. Below is a (creepy) picture of me with my very first treatment results. I’m making the face so you can see where the Botox worked SO well on my forehead. We are working on wrinkles, lightening my freckles/age spots, and tightening. I can’t wait to see what the end results are! We have currently started working on my HORRIBLE scars on my arms from getting Brachioplasty. They also run specials every month which I’ve taken full advantage of!! :) The only thing I wish was different would be a separate entrance for MedSpa only but, to my knowledge this part of the practice is still growing so hopefully I’ll see it in the future!"- K.W. / Google / Apr 08, 2022
"I had a wonderful experience at Refining Beauty. Rebeca is doing an excellent job every time I come in. I can’t wait for my next sessions. I highly recommend this place"- Google User / Google / Apr 01, 2022
"Over the years I have developed some abdominal and back fat that I have not been happy with and have not been able to lose with dieting. I am typically anti-plastic surgery. But I learned about laser Lipo from a friend who referred me to Dr. Leffingwell. After speaking with Dr.Jim and his staff I was more intrigued. They answered all my questions and shared with me exactly what to expect. I decided to get this procedure because it was less invasive. The procedure was exactly how they described it and it was very simple. I was out of the office in a couple of hours. The results are amazing and I wish I had done this years ago. But the timing in meeting Dr. Leffingwell and his staff couldn’t have been more perfect. This dude is very happy with the results. No more love handles for me. I can’t wait until the summer to get some sun on these new abs. Thank you Dr.Jim !"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Mar 09, 2022
"In short, Dr. Leffingwell demonstrated why physicians are often held in high regard. His competence and manner were very reassuring under difficult circumstances. As the "on call" doctor for his partnership, he stepped up, and, within about an hour altered my anxiety level from about 8 or 9 to around 2. Without the benefit of an assistant/nurse he performed brilliantly in alleviating my post surgery (deviated septum repair...) excessive bleeding."- J. / Healthgrades / Jan 31, 2022
"I received the My Ellevate treatment and then a month later went in for a Morpheus 8 treatment. I have loved the results of the My Ellevate treatment which addressed some loose skin under my chin and tightened my jawline. The Morpheus 8 is a micro needling treatment that helps refine skin texture and produce natural collagen in the skin. I will be back for a couple more Morpheus 8 treatments in the future. Dr Leffingwell and his staff are highly skilled and very informative and professional."- K.M. / Google / Nov 19, 2021
Facial fat transfer FAQs
Can facial fat grafting be combined with another procedure?
Yes. Many of our Midlothian, TX clients opt to combine a facial fat transfer with another aesthetic treatment. During your initial consultation at Refining Beauty with Dr. Leffingwell, be open and honest about the goals you'd like to achieve. This will help him create a custom treatment plan that suits your specific objectives.
Which areas of the face can be improved with fat grafting?
A facial fat transfer can add volume to the mid-face or cheeks, lips, and hollow areas under the eyes. It can also help reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth, along the forehead, and between the brows. Plus, it can make surface scars less noticeable.
How long will my results last?
Results from a facial fat transfer are long-lasting. After your treatment, you can expect mild redness, bruising, and tenderness, but these symptoms are normal and should dissipate over the next few days. Once the transferred fat has settled, the results will reveal smoother and younger-looking contours.
