As we age, many of us experience the formation of deep lines and wrinkles in the face and a loss of volume in facial features that can give us a hollow or sunken appearance in a number of areas including the lips and jaw-line folds between the cheeks and lips.

These very common aesthetic issues can be significantly improved with fat and stem cell injections, available from our plastic surgeon in Rhode Island. Read on for more details on this effective procedure, and please contact Dr. Patrick K. Sullivan to schedule a consultation.

Procedure Overview

Fat and adipose derived stem cells are harvested from one part of the body (usually through a tiny incision in the belly button) and are injected in areas of the face where fat has been lost over time. It can be used to fill in the deep lines between the nose and cheek (nasolabial folds), the corners of the mouth (where the mouth may have a down-turned or frowning appearance), and/or deep creases in the forehead. Fat and stem cells can be used to augment the cheeks, lips, jaw-line, chin and other areas of the face. Fat and stem cell injections can be particularity beneficial in areas where there has been facial deflation that comes with the passage of time and from a host of other reasons.

Fat and stem cell injections are done under intravenous sedation without general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. The areas may be swollen for several weeks after surgery and it will take a number of weeks to see the final outcome.

I cannot express how delighted I am with the results from my surgery. It has made such a wonderful impact in my life and gave me a new outlook that was long overdue. I commend Dr. Sullivan for performing such a superb job. He is the best. Not only am I impressed with Dr. Sullivan but I am especially pleased with his staff. You all have been so kind to me. It is a breath of fresh air to see happy and professional people in one place. I am forever grateful. I will never forget this pleasurable experience.
