Refresh and Rejuvenate Your Appearance With Facial Fat Grafting
What Is Facial Fat Grafting?
Facial fat grafting is an innovative cosmetic procedure that helps you achieve supple skin and youthful facial contours. This procedure is an excellent alternative to dermal fillers and surgical facelifts. Fat grafting involves the removal of fat in problem areas and strategically injecting it in areas of the face with volume loss. Because we use your own living fat cells to perform the procedure, you can expect long-lasting, natural-looking results.
There are many anti-aging benefits this procedure has to offer. Through facial fat grafting, we can smooth your wrinkles, enhance your facial contours, minimize scars, and add volume to sunken areas such as the cheeks.
Benefits of the Procedure
Get Natural, Long-Lasting Results
When it comes to reversing volume loss in the face, fat grafting offers superior results that dermal fillers and cosmetic injectables can’t achieve. This procedure can enhance and maintain natural fullness in the eye areas, cheeks, and jawline for a much longer time. Additionally, your own fat remains soft and supple over time, making it the perfect filler for delicate areas such as the eye and mouth areas.
Eliminate Facial Lines and Creases
Do you want to minimize the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, but don’t want to use injectables that inhibit facial muscle movement? If so, you’ll love the results you can achieve with facial fat grafting. We can inject fat beneath your skin and around your wrinkles to fill in the areas with scars, creases, and deep lines.
With fat grafting, we can help you can achieve youthful, natural-looking skin and minimize your wrinkles without relaxing your facial muscles.
Restore Facial Volume
Natural collagen production slows down due to aging, and this process causes your skin to lose elasticity and volume. When your body makes less of the essential protein that supports the skin’s structure, you may notice hollow, sunken areas on your face.
Fat grafting can plump up these sunken areas and restore facial volume, especially around the forehead, cheeks, and near your jawline. Nowadays, it’s no longer impossible to turn back the time and restore your youthful appearance.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Facial fat transfers can offer results that last for several years. And if you take good care of your skin and get maintenance treatments, your results can be permanent.
However, it’s important to note that facial fat transfers cannot stop the aging process, so undergoing the procedure will not protect you against developing signs of aging in the future. To maintain your youthful looks for the long term, you must still make healthy choices and keep up with your anti-aging procedures and treatments.
How Is Facial Fat Grafting Performed?
Fat transfers are done under anesthesia. You can expect the procedure to take less than three hours to perform. During the surgery, we harvest small amounts of fat from your trouble spots, which may include the thighs, stomach, or buttocks.
We will use a local anesthetic solution on the area where fat is extracted. Once the harvest site is ready, we will use small cannulas and a syringe to extract fat through a tiny incision. Because the fat used for the procedure comes from your own body, you can expect virtually no chances of immune system rejection after the procedure.
Next, the harvested fat is purified and strategically injected into areas of your face that need additional volume. We will inject tiny amounts of fat at a time to achieve smoother, natural-looking results. This technique makes facial fat grafting different from cosmetic procedures such as liposuction.
What Makes You an Ideal Candidate for Cosmetic Surgery?
Fat grafting can significantly improve your appearance and make you look years younger. To ensure your safety and satisfaction from this procedure, we only recommend fat grafting to healthy individuals who meet the following criteria:
For safety reasons, cosmetic procedures for addressing facial volume loss are ideal for healthy individuals under the age of 60. If you are over 60 and pass our health and medical history check, you may still be eligible for the procedure. Contact Old Town Med Spa in Chicago, IL, to schedule a consultation to know whether you are physically fit for cosmetic surgery.
Individuals who smoke and are at increased risk of poor circulation are not ideal candidates for cosmetic surgery. Before undergoing a fat transfer procedure, candidates should be in good overall health and can successfully heal and recover after the surgery.
Additionally, to know whether you’re a good candidate for fat grafting, we will assess whether you have enough fat to transfer from the harvest site to your face. If you are very slender or underweight and do not have sufficient fat, we can recommend alternative treatments or procedures.
It’s also necessary that you have realistic expectations about the final results of the surgery. During your initial consultation with our team, we’ll discuss in detail what changes you can expect to see after your fat grafting procedure. Our expert team can help you determine whether the surgery can get you the results you are hoping to see.
