Facial Fat Provides Youthful Appearance

Everyone wants to age gracefully, however, the aging process affects each of us differently. As the years go by, many changes may occur, including lines and wrinkles caused by the slowing of collagen production, as well as fat loss in general, which can cause the face to appear sunken or tired. Significant weight loss resulting from diet and exercise can also contribute to an aging look due to loss of facial fat.

If you are looking for a long-term solution to these issues for a more youthful appearance, fat transfer is the answer! Read on to learn more about this procedure and what it can do for you.

What is Fat Transfer?

Fat transfer is a versatile procedure that allows for the enhancement of the face using your own fat taken from a donor site on the body. During the procedure, a determined donor site, such as the abdomen, back, or thighs, will be used to remove fat using liposuction. This fat will then be prepared by removing impurities and then placed into syringes. This fat is then injected into the area(s) that you would like to enhance.

Facial Fat Transfer can be used in the following areas to create a more youthful appearance:

  • Cheeks
  • Lips
  • Forehead
  • Chin
  • Mid-face

How Do I Know if It’s Right for Me?

If you are in decent health, wish to rejuvenate your facial appearance, and have an area on your body with enough excess fat that it can be used as a donor site, you may be able to benefit from fat transfer to the face. The best way to determine if this procedure is right for you is through a consultation with one of our surgeons.

Overall, facial fat contributes to a more youthful appearance. If you are interested in learning more about fat transfer to the face, contact Pacific Center Plastic Surgery today to schedule a consultation appointment.
