You have done everything you can to defy the aging process. You know that there is nothing you can do to stop the passage of time. You can't freeze your age and no one has found the Fountain of Youth yet. That doesn't mean that you can't make choices that will have a positive effect on your health and appearance. You exercise regularly. You eat foods that are good for your body and your skin. You protect yourself from the damaging effects of the sun's rays by using sunscreen and protective clothing. You stay hydrated, get your beauty sleep, and use moisturizer to keep your skin as supple as possible.

Despite all your efforts, you haven't been able to escape the telltale signs of aging in your face. You are dealing with wrinkles and a loss of volume that is making you look older than you feel. You can't help but think that you look tired and worn out when you look at your reflection. Beauty products alone aren't the answer. You need help from a plastic surgeon if you are going to rejuvenate your appearance. You don't want something as extreme as a facelift, but you are willing to consider other options. Fat transfer may be the best procedure for you.

How Can Fat Transfer Make You Look More Youthful Once Again?

Fat transfer also referred to as fat grafting, is an exciting procedure that is being used for more than just enhancing the face. Plastic surgeons are tapping into the potential of unwanted fat on the body to help patients to have more volume in the buttocks or breast as well. Using your own fat is a popular approach to address many concerns that are brought on by aging when you consider your face. If you are dealing with crow's feet, deep lines that run from your nose down to your mouth, or grooves that are formed at the point where your cheek and lower eyelid meet fat transfer can fill in these lines. Fat transfer is typically used when you are dealing with a loss of volume. If you have hollows that have formed in your cheeks that give you a pinched look, you can add fullness to your face with fat grafting. You can also add more volume to your forehead or your lips. As you get older, you are likely to notice a loss of fullness in your face. Your skin may begin to droop as a result. By taking advantage of fat transfer, you will see that more youthful appearance return to your face once again.

What to Expect with a Fat Transfer Procedure

Your plastic surgeon will evaluate your face and pinpoint areas of concern that can be addressed with fat transfer. The next step will be to find a location on your body where you have excess fat. It could be your hips, your thighs, or your abdomen. Once a satisfactory site has been located with enough unwanted fat for the procedure, your plastic surgeon will need to perform liposuction in order to remove the fat. Once the fat is suctioned out of the targeted area through a hollow tube, your small incision will be closed. The fat must be purified in order for it to be safe for transfer. The final step involves injecting the fat in an area where it can benefit you by rejuvenating your face. You can expect some swelling and there is the possibility of slight bruising after your fat transfer is completed. You will have some minor discomfort at the site where liposuction was performed, but your recovery will be brief as compared to more involved procedures. You will be able to enjoy immediate results when you look at the changes that have been made to freshen up your appearance. It will make you feel refreshed and confident when you use fat transfer to soften the signs of aging.

Why Choose Fat Transfer?

While dermal fillers offer you similar results to fat transfer, they will not last. When you choose fat transfer, you are choosing a natural solution. Your fat will graft to the other tissues in your face to become a permanent part of your facial features. You won't have to worry about having an adverse reaction when you are using a substance from your own body. Your final results will look and feel natural because they are. You are taking fat that you don't want or need in order to put it to good use in another part of your body. You'll love the way you can trim down your figure and make yourself look younger once again. Fat transfer can help you after weight loss as well. If you have experienced extreme weight loss, the first place it will show is your face. You can add fullness to your face by taking any stubborn fat and transferring it to an area where you need it most. The results from fat transfer procedures will last. You won't have to come back for return appointments until new wrinkles start creeping in. The fat in your face will stay put. You should note that you may notice a change in the appearance of your face if you lose or gain weight. Keeping yourself at a stable weight can help you to maintain your results. Be sure to continue to protect yourself from the sun to look your best.
