With the advent of the Brazilian Butt Lift, which consists of using liposuction to remove fat from one part of the body and then injecting it for increased volume to the buttocks, harvesting the body's own fat and then reinjecting it elsewhere as a filler is a practice that has been exploding in popularity in recent years – and the face is no exception. As it loses volume over the years due to the ravages of time, autologous fat (fat taken from the same individual) can be the perfect natural filler to gently restore lost volume. Contact Dr. Sheena Kong at her med spa in SF and see if her Bay Area fat transfer procedure is right for you. Dr. Kong has actually transcended the typical fat transfer process and enhanced it with science! She uses the regenerative power of platelet-rich plasma cells to fat transfer sites as well. Learn more about how PRP in Bay Area patients is used in the fat transfer process.

Facial Volume Loss

Collagen is a naturally-occurring substance in the skin that gives it its structure, firmness, and form. As we get older, the amount of collagen present in our skin decreases every year, causing the skin to sag and droop, losing its form. This is only heightened by the effects of gravity pulling the skin downward and, the loss of natural fat in the skin structure, which leaves the skin looking droopy and saggy, rather than firm and youthful.

As we lose facial volume, our faces begin to appear old and tired, and we may appear to be constantly sad or upset. Restoring lost volume to the face has long been a goal of cosmetic practitioners seeking to help their patients look as young as they feel inside.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Fat Transfer Bay Area

Even during a perfectly executed fat transfer in San Francisco, a certain amount of fat is lost in the transfer process, as some cells naturally die. Particularly in patients who have an overall thin physique and therefore limited stores of accessible fat, optimizing the amount of fat that is kept viable is a critical point. Injecting platelet rich plasma (PRP) to the site of the fat transfer has been associated with significantly higher rates of fat cell survival, and can maximize the benefits and efficacy of a fat transfer procedure. The plasma is taken from the patient's body and can generally be harvested at the same time as the fat in a relatively simple, painless procedure.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

You are on our minds during this recent outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID 19), and we felt it is appropriate to keep you informed of the procedures and actions we are taking to ensure your health and safety.

Our practice is considered a low risk environment, however, we take the well-being of our patients and staff as our highest priority and it is always best to take sensible precautions during a time like this. Please note the following in regard to all patient appointments:

  • If you have any history of travel (or have come in contact with persons who have traveled) to countries where there has been a confirmed epidemic (China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Iran, Italy, Japan, and the US State of Washington), please call our office to reschedule your appointment.
  • We have implemented a “No Hand Shaking” policy at our practice during the outbreak to help limit casual contact and ensure the health and safety of our patients and staff. Please know that we appreciate you and are always happy to see you!
  • If you are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness (cough, shortness of breath, fever above 100.4), we respectfully request that you reschedule your appointment at our practice until you are free from any symptoms for a period of at least 48 hours. We have asked our staff to do the same.

In addition to our already extensive level of cleaning and sterilization, we have supplemented these efforts with additional cleaning and sanitization of hard surfaces.

This is indeed a trying time in public health, but we also want you to know that we have some of the most stringent sanitization and infection control standards in any business, making our practice a safe place to visit. Should you have any questions about this issue, please do not hesitate to contact us.

For up to date information on the virus, we would like to refer you to the government website for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, www.cdc.gov

Kindest Regards,
Dr. Sheena Kong and the Staff of Sheena Kong Medspa
