Fat transfer to the face is a highly effective anti-aging procedure that involves harvesting excess fat from the body, which is then purified and injected into other areas that have lost volume.
Aging causes facial fat loss and skin sagging, which can leave the face looking gaunt and sunken. A natural, permanent alternative to injected fillers, facial fat transfer can help restore youth, energy, and vibrancy to the face.
Fat transfer has some additional benefits, however, that make the procedure all the more attractive.
While the main goal of a fat transfer procedure is typically rejuvenation, the harvest phase adds a huge benefit to the treatment: body contouring.
Laser liposuction is used to harvest the fat from stubborn problem areas that are difficult to resolve with diet and exercise. The harvest surgery can be performed under local anesthesia, and sculpts the body while removing fat and tightening skin.
Banking Stem Cells
Adult stem cell technology is evolving quickly, and some exciting advancements have made stem cells a viable investment in future treatment options for potential disease cures and tissue growth.
Stem cells and fat that are left over from the fat transfer can be stored for future use. The science surrounding adult stem cells is moving at such a fast pace that it’s a wise decision to bank your stem cells now, in their healthiest state.
Other Fat Transfer Procedures
Fat transfer isn’t just for anti-aging–it can also be used in various augmentation procedures. Breast reconstruction and augmentation, Brazilian lifts, and lip augmentation are just a few procedures that can involve fat transfer.
