A face fat transfer involves taking unwanted fat from a part of your body where you have extra to spare. It is purified before it is injected into areas in your face where you could use more volume. You could have hollows in your cheek bones. Your face may need a little extra fullness after weight loss. You could be dealing with wrinkles that you want to smooth away. Our plastic surgeon will help you to target the areas where you need a little extra fat. Best of all, you will be getting rid of unwanted fat while you put it to good use somewhere else.
When to Choose a Face Fat Transfer
Many patients opt for a face fat transfer when they have noticed a loss in volume as they get older. This is the point in your life when collagen production decreases. Your skin loses its elasticity. It starts to droop. You may notice the fat in your face is disappearing as well. It makes you look drawn and tired. You can reclaim a more youthful appearance when you have a few injections of fat in key areas. A face fat transfer is helpful for people who have lost a great deal of weight. If you have ever noticed, the face is the first place where weight loss seems to happen. You may like how your body looks after weight loss, but you don’t want your face to be so thin people think something is wrong. A fat transfer can solve that problem.
How Do You Get Started with a Face Fat Transfer?
To find out if you are a good candidate for a face fat transfer, you need to make an appointment for a consultation at Luxe Aesthetics. Our plastic surgeon will evaluate your facial features to determine if adding more volume is the right choice for you. Your body will also need to be assessed to make sure you have an adequate source of fat for a face fat transfer. Fat can typically be harvested from the thighs, abdomen, or buttocks. If you don’t have enough fat for the procedure, dermal fillers or facial implants could be the solution for you. If you do have a good source of fat, it will need to be removed by liposuction. After it goes through the purification process, our surgeon will inject the fat in areas where you need it the most. As soon as your treatment is over, you will be able to see the difference that a face fat transfer can make for you.
