Use facial fat transfer to combat wrinkles and folds
- Posted on: Oct 15 2020
Part of the process of aging is the natural loss of collagen and elastin in the facial area. While many men and women want to hold onto their youth as long as possible, the exposure to the daily elements can make facial skin the first to change as patients enter their 30’s and 40’s. The formation of skin laxity contributes to the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. While a facelift is appropriate for patients with severe skin laxity and aging, younger patients considering a less invasive option may be attracted to the idea of fat transfers.
How does a facial fat transfer work?
Instead of using injectables such as dermal fillers or neuromodulators, patients can address unwanted wrinkles and folds by using fat from other areas of the body and injecting them directly into the indentations of the face. In doing so, patients can ensure no allergic reaction or unwanted side effects while smoothing the skin for a more youthful look. The facial fat transfer is highly recommended for patients who have specific areas of the face that they’d like to treat and do so in a way that is more natural and uses their own fat cells than human-made alternatives.
Where can facial fat transfer be used?
Most patients use facial fat transfers to add volume to wrinkles and folds and smooth the skin’s overall appearance. However, facial fat transfers can also be used to augment the cheeks or lips as well. Facial fat transfers allow patients to be flexible as it is a versatile solution for a variety of facial concerns. Patients also love the idea of removing unwanted fat from elsewhere on the body to improve two areas in one treatment!
