Facial Fat Grafting for a Younger Look

As we age, changes in the face and body become more apparent. We may see lines appear around our eyes, mouth, and forehead. We may also see our cheek bones aren’t as high as they were before and skin is looser.

We may also see fat accumulating in areas it didn’t before such as the buttocks, abdominal area, and thighs.

It’s normal to age. No one can do anything to hold time still, but there is something you can do to reduce some of the visible signs of aging.

Fat Grafting Can Reverse the Signs of Aging

Fat grafting is gaining in popularity because people have discovered it can help them look much younger. With fat grafting, a plastic surgeon uses liposuction to remove fat from an area of the body.

For example, you may want to get rid of fat accumulation in your abdominal area, so the plastic surgeon would remove it from that area and re-sculpt the abdomen.

With the fat taken from the abdominal area, he can then inject it in another location such as the face. This can help smooth out wrinkles on the face, giving skin a supple and more youthful appearance. As you age, fat is lost from the cheeks, eyes, and lips.

Additionally, the skin on the face loses elasticity, which leads to wrinkles and sagging skin. Injecting fat into the face will fill out the skin, so there is no longer the appearance of excess skin, which is what contributes to fine lines and wrinkles in the skin.

Fat can also be injected into your cheeks. This fat will plump up the cheekbone area, which will allow you look like you have the fuller, higher cheeks you had ten years ago.

Some women decide they want to go a step further with enhancing their facial features by injecting fat into their lips. Who doesn’t love big, shapely lips? Fat grafting is an all natural, permanent way to get them.
