For many men and women, the face begins to lose volume and develop wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin long before they’re ready. When this occurs, fat grafting is an innovative, all-natural way to reverse telltale signs of aging and enhance your facial features, using your body’s own tissue and excess fat as a filler.
What is fat grafting?
Fat grafting is a specialized cosmetic procedure designed to improve telltale signs of aging and enhance your facial features using your own tissue and excess body fat as a filler. It is the ideal option for patients who would like to rejuvenate their facial appearance, but either aren’t ready to undergo a facelift or are more comfortable with a natural alternative to dermal fillers, BOTOX Cosmetic and facial implants.
Over the past few years the principles of facial aging have changed. The idea of fat removal is being replaced by volume restoration with filler materials.
An increasingly popular alternative to using facial fillers is fat transfer or fat grafting. It is a safe, natural, hypo-allergenic treatment designed to restore the lost fullness and to naturally re-contour the face, which enhances the definition of the cheeks and eliminates the sunken fatigued look. Now, this sounds a lot better.
Fat cells that are successfully transferred and transplanted act as a permanent filler in that region. While it is an effectual means of eradicating the visible signs of aging, folds and wrinkles, fat transfer can also be used to correct minor facial deformities, pits or depressions in the skin and certain acne scars.
What cosmetic issues can fat grafting address?
An extremely popular facial rejuvenation procedure, fat grafting is able to naturally improve a number of cosmetic imperfections, including folds between the eyebrows, forehead creases, marionette lines, smile lines, scars and deep wrinkles. In addition, it can be used to restore lost volume anywhere on the face and neck, rediscovering your youthful contours.
An Overview of the Fat Grafting Procedure
Fat grafting is comprised of three simple steps: removing fat from one area of the body, purifying the fat cells, and then re-injecting the purified fat into the target areas on the face and neck.
To begin your fat grafting procedure in Rancho Cucamonga, Dr. Farzaneh will first perform liposuction to remove excess fat from another area of the body, such as the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs or jowls. From there, he will purify the fat cells using a special filtering system, before re-injecting the fat into the target areas on your face and neck. In this way, he is able to eliminate deep wrinkles, enhance your facial contours and correct the cosmetic imperfections that concern you most.
Once the procedure is complete, most patients will experience slight swelling and bruising where the fat was removed and re-injected. This swelling should subside within a few days, and any discomfort can be easily controlled with pain medication. The results of the procedure will be immediately apparent and are known to last much longer than artificial dermal fillers.
Dr. Farzaneh combines fat grafting with other facial rejuvenation surgeries, such as facelift or eye lift procedures, to further create a more youthful shape to the cheeks or to fill the hollowness around the eyes.
After an advanced fat grafting procedure in Chino Hills with Dr. Farzaneh, your innate beauty will be enhanced and your youthful glow rediscovered. Your facial features will appear more defined, lost volume will have been restored, and any wrinkles, scars, hollow areas and facial deformities will have been expertly corrected.
