When men and women think about the signs of aging on the face, they may immediately think of the development of fine lines and wrinkles. While these may be prominent, there is an underlying issue that can cause these to develop: facial volume loss. After the age of 30, most men and women will begin to notice a natural depletion of their facial volume from collagen and elastin loss. This may result in bags around the eyes, accentuated bony contours of the temples and cheeks, and reduced volume on each side of the face. These changes can make the signs of aging much more visible and make individuals feel self-conscious about their appearance.
At Aura Skin Spa, Dr. Anthony Waechter and his team can provide solutions to patients who want to restore their youth, and one of the popular treatments is that of the facial fat transfer services.
What is a fat transfer?
Also known as fat grafting, fat transfers utilize fat elsewhere on the body to inject into the facial area to restore lost volume. The fat removed from the body is extracted with a modern liposuction technique to ensure less bruising and scarring. Then, the collected fat is then purified and injected into the facial area where it is needed. By injecting the patient’s own fat cells into the facial area, there is no risk of allergic reaction or other complications that may be found with the use of cosmetic injectables.
What are the best areas for fat transfers?
When addressing an aging appearance of the face, most patients will find that they can improve their youthful look by injecting the fat into the following areas:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
Fat transfers are administered by an experienced professional to ensure the results are beautiful and natural. Most patients will have minimal downtime to recover from their procedure, and can enjoy the results for many years.
