As we age our faces tend to lose volume. Our cheeks may flatten, our chins grow sharper and we begin to look older. Age and exercise can produce fat atrophy in the face resulting in a sunken, drawn appearance. The facial rejuvenation procedure of Fat Transfer, allows the surgeon to sculpt and restore the face to its natural, healthy, and youthful appearance by restoring its volume.
Fat transfer has been performed as a means of increasing the facial volume for many years, however with a variability of the results. Continuing research and developments in the procedure have led to a more consistently successful technique that produces a gradual, controlled restoration of the youthful shapes of the face and other parts of the body. With this technique, it is easier to predict the long-term outcome due to grafting process is much more likely to succeed, and fat cells that have survived the grafting process have a lasting presence. The other advantage is that the material or fat transferred is your own and will be well tolerated in the long-term.
