Janine has been a long-time patient at Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz, visiting us for years for a variety of vein and cosmetic treatments.  She was most recently interested in reversing the signs of aging to her face – beyond what Botox/Fillers could achieve, so Dr. Craig Schwartz suggested a BeautiFill Lipo + Fat Transfer procedure to add volume and restore a youthful shape to her face.  With aging, there is a gradual loss of facial fat volume in the face that can lead to a sunken appearance of the cheeks and a tired, gaunt look underneath the eyes. As the face deflates further, nasolabial folds (laugh lines), marionette lines (lines beside the mouth), and bags under the eyes may become more prominent. The way to reverse these signs of aging is not through pulling and lifting of loose skin, but rather through replacing the fat that has been lost during the natural aging process in order to restore a youthful, refreshed appearance to the face.

The results of a facial fat transfer can be quite dramatic, as well as being very natural. Fat is harvested from a donor site (most often the abdomen, waist, or inner thighs), and then processed through our BeautiFill system, placed into small syringes, and re-injected into predetermined areas of the face. A Fat Transfer procedure using the BeautiFill system provides better results because the viability of the harvested fat is significantly higher than with historic systems like centrifuging. Key to achieving results that look natural is the need to place the fat in a normal anatomic distribution so that the final results are a refreshed and youthful appearance, rather than a strange or “over-filled” appearance.

“I’ve been seeing Dr. Craig Schwartz at Premier Vein & Body for years – everything from Botox to facial fillers and spider vein treatment. He is simply the best, as he has a great eye for achieving a natural aesthetic!  He’s amazing at taking the years off without making you look artificial. I recently had facial fat transfer with the BeautiFill laser to achieve a more natural and permanent result, and I couldn’t be happier! Down-time was just a few days and Dr. Schwartz and his team take such good care of you. I was a little nervous, but his wife Peggy even stayed in the procedure room to comfort me the entire time. She’s an absolute sweetheart. They kept me so comfortable throughout the procedure that I couldn’t even recall why I had been so nervous. They were on top of my after-care and made sure I stayed comfortable for the days to come. 

Dr. Schwartz is a MASTER at this procedure.  He makes you look so natural while melting the years away. He has such a great eye for facial symmetry –  I didn’t even realize how much I had needed this procedure and the difference it made until I saw my side-by-side photos after my one-month post-procedure visit!!!!  I want everyone to realize how effective this procedure is and what a great team you have at Premier Vein & Body!

Dr. Schwartz keeps up with the latest equipment and procedures and he has top-notch lasers for getting beautiful skin, which is next on my list when I do something else for myself. Thank you to everyone at Premier Vein and Body – you have truly turned back my clock by ten years or more and have greatly improved my self-confidence. I will never go anywhere else!”
