As you get older, loss of facial fat can create loose skin and wrinkles on your face. This can also make your face look hollow and tired. While dermal fillers can be an ideal solution, it may not be an excellent choice for everyone. Facial fat transfers are a natural alternative that can provide long-lasting results. Here are the top three reasons to choose a facial fat transfer to help you improve your appearance.
Achieve a Refreshed and Younger-Looking Appearance
The loss of facial volume as you age can be caused from lack of collagen and hyaluronic acid production. This can create sagging jowls and skin. A facial fat transfer can refresh your skin and boost volume for a more youthful look.
Convenient Minimally-Invasive Procedure
A facial fat transfer is a minimally invasive cosmetic surgery using your own body fat to restore volume. Since the material used is not chemically produced, the body can break down the substance without triggering an immune response. The outpatient procedure can be done in a couple of hours using local anesthesia with sedation to reduce any potential side effects. Individuals can resume normal activities right away. Unlike dermal fillers, a facial fat transfer requires no ongoing maintenance.
Slim Down Other Areas
This procedure can help you shape and slim other areas of your body. In order to do a facial fat transfer, a plastic surgeon performs liposuction on another area of the body. This fat is usually collected from the abdomen or thighs. After purification, the donor fat is then transferred to the cheeks, under the eyes or around the mouth.
