I love Dr. Leedy he is very nice and knows exactly what he is doing. I couldn’t be more proud of my decision and results highly recommend especially if your going for a natural look.
They say age with grace, but why not age with a touch of grace and a lot of confidence? As years go by, signs of aging can become more apparent. Lines and wrinkles may appear, and the fullness of youth can diminish over time. This is where fat transfer can help. Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute offers a simple yet effective way to restore lost volume and achieve a more youthful appearance. Fat transfer can help you embrace a more refreshed, revitalized version of yourself!
What is a fat transfer?
The loss of facial volume that results in cosmetic deformities can happen for a variety of reasons. Most often, loss of facial fat is associated with normal aging, but sometimes post traumatic injuries or congenital problems can cause areas of facial volume loss. Some reasons you may need a fat transfer, or structural fat grafting, which includes:
- Loss of cheek volume due to aging
- Depression in the temples due to aging
- Prominent lower eyelid-cheek tear troughs
- Thin lip volume
- Correction of hollow upper eyes after aggressive blepharoplasty
- Congenital issues such as hemifacial atrophy (atrophy affecting one side of the face)
- Earlobe atrophy with aging

The most frequently asked questions about fat transfer
At Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute, we stay up to date with the latest techniques for successful fat transfer. This procedure can be done in office but is often done in the operating room in conjunction with other procedures such as facelift, eyelid lift, and brow lift procedures. The procedure usually results in minimal bruising. It typically takes a few days to recover and swelling may take a few weeks to go down.
Your medical history will be reviewed during your consultation and your expectations will be discussed to the fullest extent possible. A plan will be outlined for you to help accomplish your goals in the safest manner. If applicable, 3D imaging will be provided to help simulate what results are possible for you.
You will have time to have all of your questions answered. If you desire, our office can even arrange for a previous patient to talk to you about their personal experience. Your consultation is approached as an opportunity to educate you about the procedure. You will never feel pressured or rushed to make a decision about what is right for you.
You may return for further discussion about the procedure at no additional cost and if you decide to move forward, there is always an additional consultation prior to the surgery. At Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute, we believe that educated patients are happy patients. Your happiness is our only goal!
We look forward to helping you reduce the signs of aging with fat transfer procedures that are designed to provide you with a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Contact us today to set up a consultation.
