Transferring Excess Fat to the Face Fills in Wrinkles
When you’re young, the fat in your face is evenly distributed and the contours appear youthful. As your face experiences signs of the aging process, however, you may notice your skin developing mild, moderate, and harsh wrinkles and folds. Aging also takes the plumpness out of your cheeks and other areas of the face, making them hollow and gaunt.
Facial Symmetry Is Taken for Granted
With time, tissue is lost from the face’s underlying natural fat layer. While this is happening, areas like the stomach and thighs are developing excess stubborn fat.
This is where facial fat transfer comes in. With a facial fat transfer, you can restore lost facial volume while reducing other areas in volume.
Facial fat transfers take the surplus fat from one area and put it into regions of the face where volume has been lost. They harvest fat from regions like the stomach, upper arms, thighs, back, and bra line.
Why Your Own Fat Is the Ideal Filler
Whether an acne breakout left you with acne scars or aging made your cheeks look hollow, your own fat is the best filler to help achieve youthful and smooth skin.
During the fat-grafting procedure, Dr. Gardner harvests fat cells from your body via liposuction and cleans and purifies them to remove unnecessary components. The remaining healthy fat cells are carefully and precisely injected into hollow regions of the face and facial wrinkles.
Advantages of Facial Fat Grafting
With facial fat grafting, there’s no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection by the body, since the material used is the patient’s own fat. There’s a very low risk of complications, and it takes only twenty minutes for the extraction of the fat. It also only takes twenty more minutes for the fat to be injected back into the face.
Natural Results with a Natural Filler
Unlike other fillers on the market, this filler is made from your own tissue, making it very natural. There are no foreign chemicals or additives. Most patients who undergo a facial fat transfer report exceedingly satisfied results as their wrinkles disappear and their appearance is restored.
Facial fat transfers are many people’s go-to technique for anti-wrinkle solutions that are longer-lasting than anything else on the market. Consult Dr. Gardner today to find out if facial fat transfers are viable for you.
