Looking for a youthful, natural appearance? Fat grafting can be added to dermal fillers or used on its own to help create a smoother skin. Unlike dermal fillers alone, fat grafting can have a longer lasting effect.
What is Fat Grafting?
As we age, our face loses fat and volume around the eyes, jaws and cheeks. As the face loses volume, wrinkles and lines can become more prominent. Fat grafting gives us the ability to remove excess fat deposits from other areas of the body and gently place it in the areas where it has depleted with age, subtly restoring your youthful appearance.
How Does it Work?
Once fat is collected, it is purified, and carefully placed. The result is a natural look that typically lasts longer than dermal fillers. Platelet rich plasma can be included in the injection for a longer lasting result. Recovery from the procedure is minimal and can last up to a week. Cold compresses can alleviate any swelling that occurs.
