No one can stop the years from flying by. The older you get, the faster they go until you are suddenly surprised by the face that you see in the mirror. No matter how good you are to your skin, facial lines are going to begin to appear. You can try to hide them with makeup or you can do something to make them go away. Fat transfer is a popular procedure that can help you to fill in facial lines and recapture a more youthful appearance.
How Does Fat Transfer Work on Your Face?
You might have heard about fat transfer for buttock or breast augmentation, but it can be used for so much more. Fat transfer is revolutionizing the way plastic surgeons are treating the fine lines and wrinkles that are a part of the aging process. It allows you to tap into the potential of excess fat in your body as you put it to good use in your face.
The first step is to remove unwanted fat in a certain area of your body. Once our plastic surgeon has harvested the fat, it must go through a purification process. Finally, it is prepared in a syringe and injected into any trouble spots on your face. The fat fills in those unwanted lines to give you that smooth appearance of your youth. Best of all, you are using something from your own body to give your face a boost.
Is Fat Transfer the Right Choice for You?
Fat transfer will only work if you have extra fat for the procedure. Typical areas for fat harvesting include the abdomen, the thighs or the buttocks. If you do not want to have something as extreme as a facelift and do not like the idea of artificial fillers, fat transfer could be the best choice for you to consider.
A fat transfer will feel and look natural. You don’t have to worry about chemicals that could cause unwanted side effects. You’ll be able to get rid of fat in one place and have lasting results in another.
