The clock of time keeps on ticking, the years flying by faster the older you get. You can’t avoid some of the changes that are going to happen to your body. You’re going to start seeing gray hairs and wrinkles. Another noticeable sign of aging is a loss of volume in your face. Hollows may appear beneath your eyes or in your cheeks, making you look tired and older than your years. If you are not happy with the face that you see in the mirror, facial fat grafting could work for you.
What’s Happening with Your Face?
A loss of volume in your face is a natural part of the aging process. As you get older, collagen production in your skin begins to dip. Collagen is responsible for making your skin firm and elastic. The older you get, the less your skin will snap into place. As your collagen levels decrease, you will notice that your skin is sagging and hollows are formed.
How Can Facial Fat Grafting Help You?
Facial fat grafting can benefit you by taking unnecessary fat from another part of your body and transferring it to your face. Also known as fat transfer, fat is removed and purified. Finally, it is injected into your face in any area where you have hollows or a loss of volume. It can also smooth away wrinkles that have appeared over time.
How Do You Get Started with Fat Grafting to Enhance Your Face?
The first step is for our plastic surgeon to evaluate your facial features to determine what areas you would like to improve. To set a facial fat grafting procedure into motion, identifying sources of excess fat on your body is necessary. Your stomach, your thighs and your buttocks may offer a ready supply of fat. Once a source of fat has been identified, the fat will be harvested. The fat must go through purification before it can finally be injected into your face.
Your fat can be used to fill in any hollows that have formed, giving you more volume once again. Wrinkles can be filled as well. You won’t have to deal with artificial fillers, and there is less risk of infection or an allergic reaction when you use your own fat for fat grafting to have a more youthful appearance.
