If you’re not happy with the face that looks back at you in the mirror, it’s time to do something about it. A face fat transfer is a procedure that can rejuvenate your face and add back that lost facial volume.
What is a Face Fat Transfer?
A face fat transfer is a dual cosmetic procedure that helps rejuvenate the face by restoring lost facial volume. As we age, we generally begin to produce less and less collagen, which is one reason our cheeks become hollow and we develop lines and wrinkles. A face fat transfer is a procedure that harvests fat from the body and injects into the face.
How is It Performed?
The face fat transfer procedure is a multi-step process. First, we will use the liposuction procedure to harvest fat from either your abdomen or thighs. From there, we will take your fat tissue sample and process it through the use of centrifuge that is able to purify and clean it. Next, we will inject this purified fat into the target areas of your face.
What are the Benefits?
The face fat transfer procedure can be used to plump up your sunken, hollow cheeks as well as the area around your eyes. This procedure can also help eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, especially those that outline your mouth and nose. A face fat transfer can even help enhance the volume of your lips.
Do I Make a Good Candidate?
Yes, most likely you make a good candidate for this procedure as long as you are in generally good health. This is the perfect procedure for those who want to improve the look and volume of their face while still achieving natural-looking results.
When Will I See Results?
After your procedure, your face will be a little bit swollen for a few days, but it is nothing to worry about. Usually, we will inject more fat than is necessary, as not all of the fatty tissue will survive the transfer. Once your swelling subsides and the fat settles, you should reach optimal results within 3-4 month.
Are the Results Permanent?
Results from a face fat transfer are semi-permanent and should last you for a long time. However, as with any type of fatty tissue, it can be absorbed by the body over an extended period of time.
