Fillers & Fat Transfer
skin FILLERS & FAT TRANSFERS
Dr. Ward has years of training with facial fillers and is an expert in their use. Every droplet of filler, whether it is Juvederm, Restylane, Juvederm Ultra, Restylane Silk, Radiesse, or any number of other injectables, is a tool that Dr. Ward uses to produce natural, but real results.
The use of fillers is a common way to treat the volume loss and wrinkles that occur as we age. The most commonly used fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, but many other types of filler agents can be safely utilized.

The Procedure & Recovery
Facial filler treatment can be performed in the office setting using topical or local anesthesia.
Using the body’s own fat is another way to improve facial volume loss and treat wrinkles. The advantage of fat transfer is that (1) it uses the body’s own natural tissue and (2) it has the potential to be permanent. The fat that lives after it is injected will stay in place forever. The fat is usually harvested from the abdomen or thighs and then injected to the area of concern on the face.
The procedure is usually performed under sedation and takes about 45 minutes to perform. The recovery is usually 5-7 days and there may be bruising and swelling.
