Along with wrinkles, lines, and creasing that comes with aging, our faces can begin to lose volume and cause certain features to look sunken and dull. While there is no way to stop the progression of aging, there are many treatment options available to reverse the changes it causes to our faces.
Dermal fillers, such as collagen and hyaluronic acid, and injectables like BOTOX®, have long been safely used to treat the dermal changes caused by aging. They offer significant benefits and come with little risk or need for recovery or restrictions after treatments.
Some patients, however, do not like the idea of injecting a foreign material or filler into their faces but still want to achieve a more youthful and radiant look. If this sounds like you, facial fat grafting might be a great option to help smooth wrinkles and bring back the volume needed for a more toned and younger-looking face.
Not only can facial fat grafting help achieve the aesthetic goals you have with the look of your face, but many benefits make it a great alternative to dermal fillers and injectables. Since the fat cells are harvested from other trouble areas of your body, there will be the added benefit of the reduction in stubborn body fat in those problem areas.
Also, since the fat cells are not just living but are taken from your own body, there is almost no risk of your body rejecting the implanted fat or the treatment failing. With that benefit, the results of treatments may last many years, with some potentially being permanent.
