The loss of facial fat volume plays an important role in aging, even more so than gravity which was long blamed for the development of wrinkles and sagging. Lost fat volume is noticeable around the eyes, cheeks and near the jawline. Fat fills out the face, keeping skin smooth and wrinkle-free.
The fat transfer procedure replaces lost facial fat by taking it from another part of the body where you don’t want it, typically the abdomen or thighs. The fat is harvested through liposuction, purified, and injected into the face to fill out areas where volume has been lost. Fat transfers are an excellent option for patients who want to smooth their skin but do not want the downtime of more invasive procedures like a facelift.
The fat transfer procedure not only improves the appearance of the face, but it also improves skin quality regarding texture and tone, leaving patients with some extra anti-aging benefits. The fat transfer procedure also kicks off an increase production of collagen, tightening the skin. The results of the fat transfer procedure are permanent, and most patients only need one procedure to get the results they desire.
