Facial Rejuvenation with Fat Transfer in Vancouver
Tight, unblemished skin together with full facial (fat) volume are the hallmarks of a youthful appearance. The natural aging process leads to a loss of facial fat volume (deflation) resulting in loose skin, wrinkles and even sagging tissue. This is particularly evident around the eyes, temples and cheeks as we age. Interestingly fat deflation in the face still occurs even if we gain weight in other parts of the body with age. Restoration of lost facial volume with transferred fat can dramatically reverse this process, leading to a younger, refreshed and revitalized appearance. Additionally, it has the benefit of frequently improving the quality of the overlying skin.
Fat transfer (also known as fat grafting or autologous fat transplantation) removes fat from one part of the body, typically the abdomen or hips and then strategically injects it into the areas of the face that have lost volume. Facial fat transfer is frequently preformed as part of a face or neck-lift procedure, or less frequently as part of eyelid surgeries. Additionally, it can also be performed as an isolated procedure.
While similar effects can be achieved with synthetic fillers (e.g. Juvederm), in contrast to these products fat transfer utilizes a completely natural product (i.e. your own fat), minimizing the chance of any adverse reactions. Finally, the results of fat transfer are permanent as opposed to the temporary results achieved with most synthetic fillers, avoiding the need for further procedures and their associated costs.
