Fighting Wrinkles and Restoring Youth With Fat Transfer Injections
When it comes to cosmetic procedures, most individuals become a bit skeptical in the face of a foreign material being put into their body. Although it is rare, these implants can cause allergic reactions in few patients. If this is in fact a fear for those considering a cosmetic operation, perhaps a fat transfer would interest them. This process can often offer the same results as an implant or facial filler, but it is done using tissue from the patient’s own body. The fat is taken from an area with excess in order to fill in an area that has become thin over time.
Signs of aging in the face are as clear as day. Facial fat collapses with age especially in the cheeks and forehead. A fat transfer is a relatively safe and simple procedure, requiring only a couple of syringes and a small amount of liposuction. The liposuction removes fat from certain areas, such as the thighs or stomach. The syringes are then filled with the extracted fat and injected into an area that has been sunken in or lacks volume. The use of the patient’s own tissue prevents the possibility of any allergic reaction, as it is completely natural looking and feeling.
A transfer is for anybody who wants to look younger again. Wrinkles are not the only sign of aging that people notice. The volume of facial tissue is a telltale sign of becoming older. With a transfer of fat from their own body, patients can regain the youthful volume that they desire. The injections can be useful in areas such as the forehead to reduce lines from the brow, or under the eyes where the pads of fat have diminished leaving the face with a skeletal, hollow look. They can also be done in hands to reduce the appearance of aging.
The results of a fat transfer can last for many years, and the recovery time from the operation is short, usually only a few days. If there is any pain after the operation, it can be treated with over the counter oral pain medication. These transfers can be used to correct many facial imperfections; not only wrinkles, but scars as well. The road to feeling younger starts with appearance, and at Advanced Concepts in Plastic Surgery with 25 years of experience with fat graphs, Dr. K is prepared to send patients off in the right direction, looking and feeling young, radiant, and beautiful.
