How Fat Transfer Can Revitalize Your Face

Facial Fat transfer MiamiDelaying the effects of aging can sometimes feel like an uphill battle. This can be especially true for the face. As you age, important proteins and subcutaneous fat that were responsible for smooth, youthful-looking skin and full facial contours are slowly depleted over time. This results in skin that is vulnerable to stubborn wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, and volume loss, especially around the eyes and cheeks.

However, you do not have to live with the results of aging, as there are options available to you that can help restore a youthful facial appearance. Fat transfer is a type of rejuvenation that is performed to plump up areas of lost volume. Continue reading to know more about this procedure.

What Is Facial Fat Transfer?

Also known as facial fat grafting, facial fat transfer is a two-part procedure that first involves having liposuction performed on an area of your body that has available or excess fat. This area is sometimes referred to as the donor site. Once collected from the site, the fat is processed and prepared for transfer to the face via syringe. Several areas of the face that commonly experience volume loss can be targeted via fat transfer, including:

  • Cheeks
  • Paranasal area (area adjacent to the nasal cavities)
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Lips
  • Tear trough/ under-eye area

This type of injection is a permanent filler and can provide lasting results.

Reasons to Consider Fat Transfer to the Face

Facial fat transfer offers many benefits to patients. It is an ideal option for individuals that:

  • Are unsatisfied with the contours of their face
  • Are suffering from age-related volume loss in the face
  • Have a deflated or sunken-in facial appearance
  • Would like to restore their youthful facial appearance
  • Are unhappy with the file lines and wrinkled appearance of their face

How Facial Fat Transfer Can Improve Your Appearance

After your procedure, the transferred fat will redevelop a blood supply, and the fat that survives the transfer is permanent. Although we cannot stop the natural aging process, fat transfer to the face can help you look more youthful for longer. A fat transfer also has the added benefit of reducing the chance of an allergic reaction since the substance is not foreign; this, in turn, can reduce complications and aid your recovery.

You can expect natural looking results following your procedure. Friends and family members may notice that your face appears younger and more refreshed, and you may feel more confident interacting with others or having your picture taken from any angle now with plumped facial contours.
