Facial volume loss is a natural part of the aging process. As skin loses elasticity, it can begin to sag, causing a hollow or drooping appearance. These effects are most commonly seen around the eyes, cheeks, and jawline. However, while aging is a part of life, losing the appearance of youth doesn’t have to be. Dr. Cornell McCullom uses a process known as “fat grafting” to restore lost volume and rejuvenate your face.
How Does It Work?
Fat grafting involves the removal of excess fat cells from one part of your body, which are processed into purified droplets. These tiny fat droplets are gently injected to fill hollowed areas of your face to restore a fuller, more youthful appearance.
Does it Last?
Grafted fat looks natural and lasts longer than temporary fillers. In some cases, Dr. McCullom may utilize a combination of platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells for added fullness and longer-lasting results.
Are there Side Effects?
Side effects for fat grafting are minimal. Slight bruising and swelling may occur during the first few days after treatment, but should subside within a week at most. Cold compresses may be used to help relieve swelling. Complications are extremely rare, and can generally be avoided by following Dr. McCullom’s post-operative instructions.
