Facial Fillers with Fat Grafts in Beverly Hills
Typically, Dr. Gary Takowsky uses fat injections at the corners of the mouth as a non-invasive way to treat facial sagging and marionette lines. Fat transfers can also give your lips more definition and fullness without having to worry about rejecting implants or needing to keep up with routine injections.
Hand Rejuvenation with Fat Grafting
Fat grafts can make your hands look younger and smoother, without leaving unsightly scars. Sometimes plastic surgeons use dermal fillers for hand rejuvenations, because they require less recovery time. However, these only restore the volume in your hand for a short period of time. Fat transfers are a permanent solution that require little pain and recovery time.

This way, the fat cells are evenly placed, and the fat cells will not be reabsorbed back into your body.

Fat Transfer to Hips (Trochanter)
Fat transfer to the trochanter area is common in women, who are unhappy with their narrow hips and consider themselves barrel bodied. Sometimes women store their fat in their abdomen, which can make their hips look disproportionate to their bodies. Extracting the fat from the abdomen and injecting it in the hip area can transform your entire body.
Labia Augmentation with Fat Grafting
Fat grafting can correct the proportion of your labia majora, increase firmness, improve its shape, and increase its size. Oftentimes, patients prefer to have fat transferred to the labia majora, as part of a labiaplasty or vaginal rejuvenation treatment.
The best candidate for labia augmentations with fat grafts are physically and emotionally healthy with a normal body weight. Depending on your body goals, you can choose to have enough fat removed to be injected into your labia majora, or you can have more fat removed. Fat transfer to the labia majora is usually an outpatient procedure, lasting for about 15 to 30 minutes.
