While dermal fillers and other cosmetic injectables can provide antiaging benefits, there are times when these treatments are not as desirable as alternatives such as fat transfer facials. Drs. Vonu, Blanchard, Zwicklbauer, and Lofgren of the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads may encourage patients with mild to moderate signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss, to think about the advantages of moving forward with injectable fat transfer facials.
What is a fat transfer facial?
The fat transfer facial is a specific procedure that provides lasting results when compared to more temporary solutions such as dermal filler injectables. Additionally, it allows many patients to avoid the need for invasive plastic surgeries such as facelifts. This treatment option involves the harvesting of fat cells from the patient elsewhere on the body, such as the thighs, abdomen, or flanks, and reinjection of them into the facial areas that need targeted improvement. In doing this, patients are utilizing their own fat cells and eliminating possible allergic reactions that might occur with tother cosmetic injections. Additionally, it provides more lasting results, unlike dermal fillers and neuromodulators which fade over several months and require continued injections to maintain the results.
Where can fat be transferred in the facial area?
Common areas where the fat transfer facial may benefit a patient include the:
• Tear troughs
• Chin area
• Eye area
• Marionette lines
• Nasolabial folds
• Wrinkles and lines throughout
Anywhere a filler can be used, a fat transfer ca be performed. This versatility makes it a popular choice for patients, especially those who want a more long-term change to their appearance without the need to schedule regular injection appointments with a plastic surgeon or dermatologist. This makes fat transfer facials an obvious solution for many adult men and women in the community.
