The clock of time keeps ticking; you can’t slow it down or make it go backwards. No matter how well you take care of yourself or how diligent you are about your skin care regimen, the marks of aging are inevitable. You’ll be sure to see fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead, around your eyes and near your mouth. Your skin will begin to droop and hollows may appear in your cheeks.
When you look at your face in the mirror, you may not believe that it is you. While you may not be able to stop aging in its tracks, you can choose to do something about it. A fat transfer procedure is a popular option for facial rejuvenation that may work for you.
How Does a Fat Transfer Work?
A fat transfer involves the removal of excess fat from one part of your body so that it can be injected into another area where more fat is needed. Typical areas with excess fat include your abdomen, your thighs and your buttocks.
The fat is first removed via a minor procedure. The fat is then put through a purification process before it is prepared for injection. The last step is to inject the fat into areas on your face where you have lost volume and elasticity due to a drop in the amount of collagen in your skin. Your fat can be used to smooth out wrinkles and add more volume to your face where hollows have appeared. You can even plump up your lips.
Why Choose Fat Transfer for Facial Rejuvenation?
There are many dermal fillers that are used for facial rejuvenation. However, there is an increased risk for complications with fillers that are not naturally present in your body. When you opt for a fat transfer procedure, you can rest assured that you are using a substance that is completely natural, coming from your own body. It will feel and look natural after the procedure. You’ll also have the added bonus of getting rid of some unwanted fat along the way.
