There are many reasons the face begins to age. This includes a loss of volume that can cause a sunken appearance and wrinkles. Although there are several options to restore the volume and turn back the clock, fat transfers have become increasing popular due to the numerous benefits. A fat transfer can be an effective procedure and uses the natural fat from the body to restore the volume to the face and cheeks.
Fat From the Body
One of the best benefits of a fat grafting procedure is the fat is taken from a specific area of the body as opposed to using a synthetic substance. If the individual has any extra fat on their thighs, hips or buttocks it can be removed and used to plump the face wherever additional volume is necessary. This procedure does not require a large quantity of fat to be removed but it might make a difference in certain areas of the body. This is dependent on the amount of fat in the selected location. The fat used for a fat transfer comes from the body of the individual. This means the chances of the person having an allergic reaction or rejecting the fat are slim.
Fat Transfer and Additional Procedures
Fat transfers work well with other procedures such as BOTOX®. The combination of the two helps decrease the appearance of facial lines caused by using the same muscles in the same way over a long period of time. These procedures can easily be performed at the same time which is much more convenient. Numerous individuals prefer a more natural alternative whenever possible. A fat transfer is an effective and safe way to replace the volume in the cheeks and fill in wrinkles and lines using what is naturally available in the body. The end result has a natural and beautiful appearance.
Even though most people would agree that less fat is better, fat is a necessary part of our body to not only remain healthy but aesthetically pleasing. Gaunt cheeks can be fixed with a little fat from the love handles. A sunken appearance can be rejuvenated with the extra fat on the buttocks.
