Fat Transfer – A new technique
Our face is often the most distinguishing part of us; what sets us apart from every other person on earth. Enhancing the natural beauty of the face and creating a youthful appearance is the purpose of facial cosmetic surgery. Whether by aging or simply structural changes over time, a person’s unique facial composition can obtain an appearance that is unsatisfying to them. As we age, the facial volume decreases over time in all areas of the face; slight in some, and quite a lot in others. How people perceive us when they see our face is outside of our control, as many of us have no way to change those facial features on our own. The overall deflation of the face contributes significantly to the aged look. Adding volume is key to creating a naturally youthful appearance.
Fat transfer is a highly successful procedure we use for cheek, brow and lip augmentation and overall facial improvement. Fat is harvested through a super “mini” liposuction, so to speak, from different areas of the body including the abdomen, lateral thighs or knees and then processed and transferred to the face resulting in a more full and youthful face. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and/or light IV Sedation and recovery time is usually only a few days. There should be little to no pain with fat transfer procedure and there are no scars.
