A youthful face is often defined as one that is wrinkle-free and plump with a glowing complexion. However, over time, these indicators of youth are gradually replaced with bothersome signs of aging, such as fine lines and volume loss. Top surgeon Dr. Roham, can improve his patients’ appearance with fat transfer to the face, which relocates fat from another area of the body to the face for dramatic results. Learn more about this procedure and how it can benefit you below.
Benefits of Facial Fat Grafting
Fat grafting to the face is a type of cosmetic rejuvenation using the body’s own fat. The procedure begins with fat harvesting from an area of the body that contains excess fat, also called a donor site. This harvested fat is then prepared before being placed into syringes to be transferred into areas of the face that are volume depleted. This is usually the cheek area, around the nostrils, nasolabial folds, forehead, lips, and near the eyes. Fat grafting to the face comes with a host of benefits for patients, including:
Boosts volume in the face: Fat grafting is ideal for improving your facial contours. Dr. Roham skillfully injects the fat into areas that are in most need of volume repletion, resulting in a plumper facial appearance.
Long lasting results: Facial fat grafting is a type of permanent filler, and many patients choose facial fat grafting for their rejuvenation needs because of the long-lasting results.
Eliminates stubborn wrinkles and lines: When volume is restored, lines and wrinkles become less noticeable.
Immediate results: This cosmetic procedure can deliver immediate results, even after the first treatment.
Quick recovery: While swelling and some bruising are common after your treatment, recovery lasts only a few days, and many are ready to jump back into their normal routines in three to seven days.
Additionally, because the injected substance is composed of your own fat, facial fat grafting can potentially lower the risk of immune reaction.
