Fat Grafting & Volume Restoration

In addition to facial and dermal fillers, fat from your own body can be used as a filler to help decrease signs of aging. As we age, we gradually loose fat and volume from our eyes, jawline, and cheeks leaving the appearance of a sunken face. With fat grafting, you rejuvenate your face and replace the youthful plumpness you once had.

Generally, fat grafting involves collecting fat from a part of your body, purifying it, and then re-injecting it carefully in the desired areas for volume. Once completed, fat grafting looks extremely natural and generally lasts longer than temporary fillers. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) with stem cells is sometimes used with the fat to enhance the results and add longevity.

The recovery time after the injection of fat grafts is minimal. Cold compresses can be applied to the treated areas and bandages are rarely necessary. Swelling and bruising are the most common side effects of this procedure and usually disappear after 5-7 days. While complications are rare, patients can minimize potential problems by following the post-operative instructions provided by the surgeon. 

The goal is to take away undesirable fat from a part of the body, along with the stomach or thighs, and use it to clean or increase the scale of every other area, along with the breasts or bottom. Lower face extent recuperation normally consists of correction of nasolabial folds, intellectual folds (chin area), and shape introduced to the chin or jawline. Some sufferers have a lack of extent because of genetics, weight loss, medications, or disease.
