Fat Injection Washington, DC

Fat InjectionFat injections offer a short-term solution for people who want to plump cheeks and lips, or to fill lines and wrinkles on the face. Your own fat may be used to improve the appearance of the face by moving it from an area of the body where it is less needed. Fat cells are removed from the buttocks, stomach or thighs, then purified by the doctor. They are transplanted to desired areas with a series of injections.

The effect of fat injections can last as little as a few weeks or up to one year. However, results are unpredictable. If the fat cells do not get a sufficient blood supply at the transplant site, the cells will not take and they will be reabsorbed into the body. Repeated treatments may be necessary.

My experience with Dr. Olding and his staff was absolutely wonderful

My experience with Dr. Olding and his staff was absolutely wonderful. After several consultations with other plastic surgeons I settled on Dr. Olding because I believed he was the most qualified and showed the best judgment while explaining my procedure to me. He was also recommended to me by my trusted dermatologist so that factored into my decision as well.

The fat injections are generally delivered during an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. Risk of complication is typically minimal, though patients may experience swelling and bruising that lasts for several weeks or months.

Important Announcement

I am committed to the health and safety of my patients. Public health officials have mandated the cancellation of elective surgeries, and for the protection of our patients and their families, we will not be seeing elective patients until the ban on doing so is lifted. Therefore, for the next few weeks, we will not be scheduling new appointments or procedures; however, our staff will continue to be available to take phone calls and answer your questions. Once we have some glitches out of the system, you will be able to have a virtual consult with me – stay tuned!
