Centrifuged Fat

One of the most popular non-surgical procedures offered by Miguel Delgado, M.D. is Ultherapy, the skin tightening treatment for wrinkles and fine lines. Another exciting procedure that is available to Miguel Delgado’s patients is fat transfers to the face. This procedure fills in areas that have lost fullness due to aging or weight loss.

The answer is yes, but with conditions.

Ultherapy and Then Fat Transfers

There hasn’t been any data yet to support the possibility that Ultherapy may cause diminished facial volume, but it is something to consider. Careful application of Ultherapy can avoid or minimize volume loss as Ultherapy allows the ability to visualize the layer to be treated. It is possible to avoid the fat transfers. However, that may mean having to skip areas that some lifting would be beneficial.

It would be best to have Ultherapy done first and then fat transfers. If the patient has already had fat transfers and desires Ultherapy, then it still can be done but might be advantageous to wait about six months allowing the fat to get a good blood source.
