As we get older the fat content in our faces, particularly the mid-face and chin area loses volume. This can make our cheeks look rather sunken and the whole face drawn downwards, causing deep wrinkles. A similar appearance is evident if one loses a significant amount of weight.
Fat Transfer is a natural solution to restore subtle volume and shape. Autologous fat can be taken from the abdomen, thighs or buttocks via liposuction and transferred to areas of the body where volume is needed, as well as to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles (glabellar, nasolabial area, forehead, periocular area, nasolabial folds and the oval shape of the face). We can also achieve an increase in the volume of cheekbones, shape the chin and enhance lips using this method.
Increasingly popular among women, the key benefit of fat grafting is that everything is taken from the patient, improving cohesion and ensuring a better aesthetic result. Rich in stem cells, using this method to inject the facial area has great results for rejuvenation.
