Time goes by so quickly. Sometimes, you can’t even catch your breath as you look back on all of the years that have gone by. You may not feel your age, but your mirror tells you another story. You’re seeing the most noticeable signs of aging when you look at your face. This is where the fine lines and wrinkles crop up. Even more disturbing is the loss of facial volume that can make you look older than your years. Fortunately, you can do something to slow down the effects of aging. You may not be able to turn back the hands on the clock of time, but you can make your face look more youthful with a fat transfer to restore lost facial volume.
How Can a Fat Transfer Restore Volume to Your Face?
As a natural part of the aging process, the amount of collagen produced in your face will begin to decrease. As a result, you lose elasticity. You are also likely to lose fat from your face. The end result is hollows and drooping skin that ages you. You can choose a fat transfer to remedy the problem. Fat transfer involves taking fat from one part of your body and transferring it somewhere else.
What Should You Expect During a Fat Transfer?
In order to harvest fat from your body, our physician will first assess you to find a spot on your body where you have excess fat. Your stomach, your thighs or your buttocks may provide an adequate amount of fat. Once an excess store of fat has been identified, minor liposuction will be used to remove the fat. Your fat will then go through a purification process. The final step will involve injecting fat in any part of your face that needs volume. A fat transfer can smooth away wrinkles as well.
