As you age, your face may become more hollow. Areas may lose volume and begin to sag. Your young, fresh appearance takes on a decidedly old and tired look.
You may think the solution lies with expensive, invasive cosmetic surgery. While facelifts and eyelid lifts are viable options, many men and women find the solution for facial rejuvenation in their hips, thighs or even buttocks!
Called fat grafting or fat injections, the process uses your body’s own natural fat deposits to add volume to your face. Injections of fat are a noninvasive, natural way to add suppleness, tone and definition to the lines and folds that have formed on your face.
The process is simple and straightforward. Liposuction is used to remove fatty deposits around your abdomen, on your legs or on your butt. Impurities are removed from the fatty tissue. Then, the fat is injected into the areas of your face where you need definition and fullness. The procedure takes about an hour, and is usually performed using light sedation and local. Recovery time is quick, and you shouldn’t experience significant downtime.
Since the process uses your body’s own tissue, there’s no chance of an allergic reaction. And the results are long lasting since the fat stays in your body for years.
Candidates for fat injections for facial rejuvenation have probably begun to notice a sallow appearance in their faces. As early as your 30s, you may notice:
● Deep nasolabial folds between your nose and mouth,
● Marionette lines running from the corners of your mouth down to your chin,
● Deflated cheekbones,
● Narrowed temples
● Shadows and depressions under your eyes.
It’s important to address these changes with fat grafting before your skin becomes too loose. Most patients who opt for this procedure are in their late 30s to 50s, but fat injections can be performed on people who are years older, as long as you’re in good health and your skin will support the fat transfer.
