Fat Transfer in Reno
Fat transfer is a cosmetic technique that involves removing or harvesting fat from one part of a patient’s body (buttocks, thighs, or abs) and transferring it to another part. This kind of procedure is generally done for aesthetic facial enhancements.
Dr. Kiener has performed fat grafting for over 20 years. Once the fat has been removed from the abs or thighs, Dr. Kiener reinjects it into the problem area, usually the face, to smoothen the skin or add volume to the lips or cheeks.
Fat transfers are performed under local anesthesia. Results are instant and can last from several months to a couple of years. Some patients may experience swelling, which can last for up to 36 hours. Any pain or discomfort can be treated with oral medication prescribed by Dr. Kiener.
