Facial Fat Transfer & Liposuction Patient
I live in Atlanta, GA but had met Dr. George Solomon at a conference and learned about his skills as a cosmetic surgeon. Mid-September 2015, I came to Solomon Cosmetic Center in Palm Harbor, FL to have liposuction on my upper and lower abdomen and flank area. I also was ready for a refresh of Restylane injections on my checks and nasolabial folds around my mouth, and lips. I have been getting injectable fillers in Atlanta for the last 10 years, but thought I’d go ahead and have that done at the same time by Dr. Solomon.
Before surgery, Dr. Solomon told me about how he had been doing a lot of fat transfer procedures to the facial areas for his patients who were having liposuction. I was able to see recent before and after photos and was so impressed, that I decided to have the fat transfer done to my face.
The procedure went perfectly. The staff is awesome at Solomon Cosmetic Center and they all made me feel really comfortable. Dr. Solomon was super too! I have a friend that lives in Siesta Key, FL and she took care of me for the weekend. I slept most of the next day and just relaxed in her beautiful condo that overlooks the ocean!
Before leaving to go back to Atlanta that next week, I went by Solomon Cosmetic Center to have Dr. Solomon for a post-surgical exam. We were both very pleased at the results! Finally, a flat belly again! My face and lips were a little swollen but I could tell it was going to look great!
It’s been 5 months since the surgery and I’ve got to tell you how pleased I am. The fat transfer to my face is absolutely amazing! I’ve never looked better or more youthful, but very natural looking at the same time!
The other amazing thing is my skin. It has been flawless! Dr. Solomon had explained to me that when he takes fat from my body, there are stem cells that are regenerative in that fat. Stem cells can improve your results by creating an enhanced natural blood supply to the treatment area. This will ultimately improve the quality, health, and appearance of your skin, providing a better outcome than traditional fat transfer procedures. In addition, you will achieve longer lasting results.
When Dr. Solomon extracted the fat from my abdomen, he then put that fat into a centrifuge to isolate the stem cells, creating a concentrated and enriched solution. He also combined it with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) which was separated out from my own blood. Dr. Solomon reintegrates the stem cells with the fat and PRP before injecting into the designated areas on my face.
I’m not a doctor, so I may not totally understand what has happened in and under the skin on my face but, I can tell you – it worked!
