Add Volume to the Face with a Fat Transfer

You have been dedicated to caring for your skin, using sunscreen and moisturizers over the years. All of your efforts will help you to be in good health, but you can’t erase the signs of aging that are creeping up on you.

As you see those lines begin to form on your face and watch those hollows appear, it can be discouraging. Your skin will lose elasticity and begin to droop as a natural part of the aging process.

You can do something about it and you don’t have to use harmful chemicals or go through something as extreme as a facelift. Fat transfer can add volume to your face and help you to reclaim your youth.

What is Fat Transfer?

Fat transfer is a procedure that uses your own fat to add fullness to your face. It can also help you to fill in those wrinkles and diminish the marks that have been made by the passing years. The first step is to harvest excess fat from your body. Get rid of unwanted fat in your abdomen, your buttocks, or your thighs as an added bonus. The fat is then purified and prepared for injection.

The final step is to inject the fat into areas of concern to restore fullness to your face. The procedure is relatively short and you will be sent home after it is completed, allowing you to experience instant results.

The Natural Injectable

When you consider alternatives for injectable fillers, most dermal fillers involve the use of chemicals. Not only are you putting a foreign substance in your face, you are at risk of developing complications.

Most dermal fillers are only temporary and will require return visits. Opt for fat transfer and you are using a completely natural filler that comes from your own body, reducing the potential for reactions and infections. Your results will last as you enjoy a more youthful, fuller face.

What is Involved in a Fat Transfer Procedure?

If you choose fat transfer, you will be given an intravenous sedative or other form of anesthesia before small incisions are made for liposuction. Fat will be removed from the targeted area in your body, your incisions will be closed, and the fat purification process begins.

Once the fat has been purified, it can be injected into your face. Local anesthetic on your face can prevent pain. Once your procedure is completed, you will be able to see the difference as wrinkles are filled and volume is added to any hollows.
