Facial Fat Transfer
Volume loss in the face as you age can lead to sagging skin and sunken features. A facial fat transfer will help you restore a more youthful appearance. By smoothing wrinkles and boosting volume in facial features, this procedure could help you feel more confident about the way you look. If you are not ready for surgery, a facial fat transfer is an excellent alternative.
Facial Fat Transfer Procedure
A facial fat transfer is a cosmetic procedure that involves a three-step process. Fat is harvested from other areas of your body, such as the thighs and abdomen, to be injected into your face. The surgeon will use liposuction to remove excess body fat from the donor site. The fat is purified and transferred into syringes for facial injection. Small doses of fat are injected into specific areas of the skin, depending on the desired results to be achieved.
The outpatient process is performed using local anesthesia with sedation within a couple hours. You can resume normal activities within a couple weeks after the procedure. The length of the full recovery period will vary depending on the number of injections performed during the procedure. A facial fat transfer provides a more permanent solution than dermal fillers and injectables. There is no need for ongoing maintenance.
