Fat Pad Removal
Fat pad removal or reduction can be achieved by two main non-surgical treatments, Lipolysis “Lipodissolve”, and Morpheus8 - Radiofrequency micro-needling technology.
What is a fat pad?
A fat pad is a collection of densely packed fat cells encapsulated within a fibrous tissue envelope. They can occur at multiple locations throughout the body and can become more apparent with age. Common ones are under the eyes (often called “eye bags”), on the upper cheeks (called “festoons” or “malar bags”), on the jawline (called “jowl pads”) as well as the fatty lumps that can occur anywhere on the body (called “lipomas”).
“Lipomas” are covered in detail in another section on our website.
Why would I have it/them removed?
The facial contours change with time as we know. We lose volume in some areas and gain fat pads in others, and all of this contributes to the appearance of the aging face. Replacing volume where it is lost with dermal fillers or fat grafting assists in providing a more youthful appearance but this doesn’t change the fact the fat pads are present- removing them is the way to reduce or eliminate their contribution to the aging face.
What are the most common areas treated?
The most common areas of concern are fat pads in the face include under the eye, along the jawline or jowl area, and the neck, but any area can be treated.
