Fat Transfer to Face

“If you have noticed ‘deflation’ of your face due to aging, I can easily move a little tummy fat to your face and make you look 20 years younger OVERNIGHT… believe it!” – Dr. Boutté

One of the most popular and highly sought after cosmetic surgeons in Atlanta, Dr. Boutté is definitely a master at her craft! Constantly perfecting techniques to restore your youthful appearance as seamlessly as possible, she has perfected the art of restoring lost facial volume by “recycling” or “harvesting” fat from other areas of the body. Fat transfer to the face offers amazing life-long reversal of time! The improvement lasts 7-10 years!

Dr. Boutté is well known for her “all-natural creations”! Imagine using your own body fat safely harvested from areas of unwanted fat to recreate the most beautiful, youthful, face you ever thought possible!

Dr. Boutté takes a great deal of time consulting with each patient to determine which procedure methods will yield optimal, yet realistic results. Sometimes pre-manufactured fillers such as Juvéderm®, Radiesse®, Voluma®, Belotoro® and Bellafill® work best if the volume loss in regions of the face is only mild. However, if there is more widespread moderate to severe loss of natural fat, fat transfer to the face may be the ideal procedure. The appropriate technique is based upon the following:

  • Actual facial volume loss needs.
  • Your realistic goals.
  • Your general health and medications.
  • Skin quality and elasticity, as well as the amount of extra skin present.

How is Fat Transfer to the Face Done?

As with any other procedure, American Society of Cosmetic Surgery member, Dr. Boutté, strives for more natural-looking results when contouring your most precious asset, your face! Fat transfer to the face is a fat graft or fat transfer procedure whereby fatty (adipose) tissue is extracted from one part of the body via liposuction and reintroduced to pre-determined regions of the face. It involves gently extracting a small volume of fat, usually from the abdomen, love handles, or thighs, then carefully injecting it through needle insertion into “deflated” areas of the face. There is no long-term scarring involved! This procedure provides youthful volume restoration that enhances contour, definition and appearance to cheeks, eyes, temples, jawline and jowls.

Traditional tumescent liposuction is performed using small incisions. First, diluted local anesthesia that reduces bleeding and bruising is infused into donor layer of fat. Then a thin hollow tube, or cannula, is inserted through the incisions to loosen fatty (adipose) tissues. The dislodged fat is then suctioned out of the body using a collection vacuum syringe attached to the cannula. The removed fat is immediately inserted into pre-selected facial regions through tiny incisions. Dr. Boutté pays careful attention to the overall aesthetic appearance, while restoring youthful elegant contours to your face that will last for 7 years or longer!

Healing Process

The healing process requires applying cool compresses to the areas of fat transfer for the first day. You will also be given a support garment that will apply even compression to the areas that were treated with liposuction. Dr. Boutte’ advises taking about 1 to 2 weeks to rest and recover, allowing mild swelling and possible mild bruising to resolve. Post operatively, Dr. Boutté will also advise you on the following:

  • How to care for the surgical sites.
  • Medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection.
  • Specific concerns to look for at the surgical sites.
  • When to schedule your follow up visit with Dr. Boutté.

Smart Lipo to Chin and Jowls

Dr. Windell Boutté will tell you that caring for your body through eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly is not always enough to achieve the toned figure you desire. Sometimes a few stubborn pockets of fat just won’t go away no matter how diligent your fitness efforts may be. In these situations, Dr. Boutté has performed and/or traditional liposuction as an excellent option to put the finishing touches on all the hard work you’ve already done through your diet and exercise regimen.

Boutté Contour Surgery & Skin regularly performs chin liposuction and tightening; minimally invasive cosmetic surgery procedures that remove fat from under the chin, as well as they serve to tighten the sagging chin, removing that a “double chin” and restoring the jaw line to a more fit and youthful shape. Reducing fatty deposits in this area of the face is impossible through exercise and diet, which is why chin liposuction and tightening surgery is oftentimes the solution.

Here at Boutté Contour Surgery & Skin, we offer the latest and most technologically advanced liposuction techniques in order to deliver beautiful, natural looking results that adhere to the highest safety standards. The newest advancement in the fat removal arena is Smart Lipo and serves as an alternative to Liposuction.

What is Smart Lipo?

Of all of the cosmetic medical procedures available to patients in the United States today, liposuction is the most popular. There are a variety of different liposuction techniques that are on the market today and Smart Lipo is an excellent choice because of its safety and effectiveness. Though traditional liposuction techniques were notorious for their long recovery periods, bruising, swelling, and side effects, Smart Lipo keeps these issues to a minimum. Through the use of laser technologies to melt fat while coagulating blood in the blood vessels, it is possible for patients to enjoy all the benefits of traditional liposuction without the long recovery periods.

The best way to determine whether Smart Lipo is right for you is to speak with Dr. Boutté or one of her representatives in person. Please call (678) 344-2450 today to schedule a consultation at our Stone Mountain, Georgia office.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

“People who wish to rid themselves of the ‘tired eyes’ are often outwardly lively and vibrant and I find a great deal of joy in matching the eyes with the attitude.” –Dr. Boutte

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is one of the most sought after procedures at Boutte’ Contour Surgery & Skin with patients looking to reduce puffy, deeply creased or drooping skin around the eyes. Possessing a wealth of knowledge in anti-aging procedures, Dr. Boutte’ will thoroughly explain the customized method she will use during an eyelid surgery to meet the patient’s needs and desired results of a more youthful and vibrant appearance. Located just east of Metro Atlanta, Dr. Boutte’ is easy to access!

Eyelid-Surgery-Blepharoplasty

“You know, when I’m consulting my eyelid surgery patients, I notice that they’re so ready for change! Before making the decision to consider surgery, they have usually tried all kinds of magic serums and expensive cosmetics that just haven’t provided the results they’re after,” Boutté says. “Then, after the surgery, getting to see that sparkle and smile in their eyes is priceless, it kind of chokes me up to have had a little something to do with that!”

Do I need Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)?

Dr. Boutté will walk you through the suggested surgical method to produce the desired results. Specifically, eyelid surgery can reduce the appearance of the following:

  • Loose or hanging skin that disfigures the natural contour of the upper eyelid
  • Excess skin or fatty tissue fatty that creates puffiness around the eyes
  • Dark circles or bags under the eyes
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid

What happens during a Blepharoplasty?

Under local anesthesia along with mild sedatives, Dr. Boutté will carefully make the incision along the UPPER eyelid to allow for the repositioning or removal of the droopy excess skin and the incision site is then closed with sutures. The resulting scar will be concealed within the natural crease of the eyelid once healed. If you are a candidate for a LOWER eyelid procedure, an incision is made along the lower eyelash line and, much like the upper eyelid procedure, the excess skin is either repositioned or removed and the incision is closed with dissolvable sutures.

How long does it take to recover?

During eyelid surgery recovery, lubricating ointment and cold compresses may be applied. In some cases, the eyes may be loosely covered with gauze.

Some patients may experience the following the first few days post op:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Irritation or dry eyes
  • Discomfort
  • Possible irritation at the incision sites

Post operatively, Dr. Boutté will advise the patient on the following:

  • How to care for your eyes
  • Medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection
  • Specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your overall health
  • When to schedule a follow-up visit with Dr. Boutté

How much is this going to cost me?

The cost of blepharoplasty varies greatly on a few variables that include the amount of excess skin needing to be removed or redistributed and procedural techniques. Here at Boutté Contour Surgery & Skin, we pride ourselves on extending high-end, quality results without the high-end cost.

We offer a variety of finance options, including CareCredit, Alphaeon, and several others! Our well-informed finance team will help you explore payment options that easily fit your budget to rekindle that youthful sparkle and smile in your eyes.

If you feel you are a candidate for eyelid surgery, schedule your free consultation with Dr. Boutté today! While maintaining your privacy, Dr. Boutté and her highly skilled patient friendly staff will gladly address your questions, concerns and, most importantly, the results you’re after!

All eyelid surgeries are performed in our state of the art outpatient medical center, Premiere Aesthetic Center, in Lilburn, Georgia just a few minutes East of Metro Atlanta.

Facial Surgery

At Premiére Dermatology & Surgery, in Atlanta Georgia, plastic surgery can help with many concerns related to your facial appearance. Most surgical procedures offered by Dr. Windell Boutté focus on reducing the signs of aging, while others are designed to enhance proportion of facial features like the nose, chin or ears. Read on to learn more about the facial surgery procedures Dr. Boutté provides.

Brow Lift

Often we think of a patient with a low brow as being tired, angry or grumpy. A brow lift restores the brow to a more open awake position while at the same time tightens the upper eyelid skin. As the muscles are tightened with a brow lift and/or removed, wrinkles, creases and furrows disappear.

Chin Surgery

The chin is important for facial harmony, a primary factor in what is considered a beautiful face. Correcting a deficient chin to a slightly more prominent chin often improves this facial balance and harmony.

Dermabrasion

If your skin shows deep lines and wrinkles and age spots, you may choose dermabrasion to resurface the skin. We offer dermabrasion treatments to remove dull surface skin cells and unwanted skin growths. After dermabrasion, fresh new skin is able to emerge. This improves the look and health of your skin and can be completed in one treatment.

Ear Surgery

Dr. Boutté performs ear pinning surgery for those who struggle with ears that appear misshapen or protrude too far. By accessing the cartilage of the ears, Dr. Boutté is able to reshape ears and normalize their appearance, molding them closer to the head.

Eyelid Surgery

Drooping, sagging skin on the upper and lower eyelids along with bulging fat and hollowness may all be treated with blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery. This procedure can address the upper or lower eyelids.

Facelift

The facelift of today creates a younger looking patient (10-12 years younger) with minimal signs of the procedure. A facelift is a rejuvenation surgery that goes beyond just skin tightening. To restore a younger appearance, modern facelifts extend below to the underlying facial muscles called the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS), while reducing the loose skin.

Facial Implants
In some cases, you may feel your facial features lack harmony and that some are too small in comparison to the rest of your face. Facial implant procedures can restore facial harmony and proportion by adding fullness to the cheekbone structure.

Facial Fat Grafting
Fat grafting uses extra fat from your own body to fill lines and wrinkles on the face. Through this procedure, you can achieve more youthful volume in the skin, with a dramatic reduction in the treated wrinkles.

Neck Lift
If you have ever been bothered by the appearance of a “turkey neck,” you’re not alone. For many peole, aging skin loses its elasticity and gravity takes over, leaving wrinkles, sagging neck skin, and vertical bands between the chin and neck. A neck lift is traditionally a rejuvenation surgery that tightens the skin and muscles on the neck.

Mini-Facelift
The mini-facelift is perfectly suited for a 30-to 40 year-old woman or man who wants a more youthful appearance but doesn’t need a full facelift. The mini lift is shorter and slightly less invasive, so you can be back on your feet within a couple of days. This type of limited facelift has also been useful for tightening a patient’s features after a previous facelift, giving them several more years with a youthful appearance.
