About Fat Injections
Overtime, with aging, volume is lost in the face resulting in a sunken or gaunt appearance. If you have considered undergoing a facial rejuvenation procedure but don’t think you’re ready for a face lift or other form of facial cosmetic surgery, Fat transfer injections could be the answer.
By adding volume to the face with fat grafting, fullness is restored leaving patients looking more youthful and refreshed. There is also some evidence to suggest that fat grafting may actually improve the quality of the overlying skin.
The Fat Injections Advantage
In today’s cosmetic world, fat grafting not only addresses one’s facial and body proportions, but can also improve the surrounding tissues. This injection method of facial fat sculpting, also called microlipoinjection, can restore attractive contours to your cheeks, chin, and under-eye area, and add volume to your lips.
There are three different types of fat grafting techniques that can be used to transfer fat around your body. Each one has its own use and benefits.
Structural Fat Grafting: This is when large fat particles are taken and used to replace significant loss of volume in areas of the body such as the butt, breast, etc. Irregularities can occur after undergoing a breast or butt augmentation with implants. When the shape of a breast or butt needs optimizing, fat grafting can be used.
Micro Fat Grafting: This is when smaller fat particles are taken and used to correct fine lines on the face. It works similar to a dermal filler in that it corrects wrinkles, creases, etc. Another factor that sets a micro fat grafting apart from other dermal fillers is the length of time that the volume enhancement lasts. Generally, the effects of fat injection can last years and in some cases, the effects last indefinitely.
Nano Stem Serum: This is when a fat serum has been spun down in a centrifuge to a high concentration of stem cells. This serum of stem cells is used to improve the overlying skin’s appearance, texture, and quality. The effect is not immediate, but progressive, occurring over a 2 months’ period.
