One of the signs of aging is to see the skin on your face sagging and thinning. A traditional facelift can help with this, but more and more cosmetic surgeons are turning to facial fat transfer, also called fat grafting. This relatively new procedure takes fat from some other part of the body – most often the abdomen, but sometimes the thigh – and uses it to fill in the sunken areas of the face.
At MD Ageless Solutions, we are proud to offer facial fat transfer to our discerning clients.
When should you consider a fat transfer?
You should consider a facial fat transfer in Miami if you have:
- Sunken cheeks, or other areas of the face that look sunken or creased.
- A long-term issue with under-eye bags not caused by temporary fatigue.
- Crows feet, worry lines, or other fine lines and wrinkles.
- An overall tired look to your face.
Facial fat transfer often provides a more permanent solution than fillers.
What are the pros of a fat transfer?
The biggest pro of a fat transfer in Miami is that it uses fat from your own body. This significantly reduces the risk of a bad reaction, whereas some patients have an allergic reaction to dermal fillers, with unpleasant results. The effect is often more natural in the long term.
What are the cons of a fat transfer?
The largest con is that the procedure takes longer, due to the need to extract and process the fat. It is also generally more expensive, but most of our patients say the results are well worth it.
How does the procedure work?
The surgeon will begin by using liposuction to extract fat from an agreed-on site. The exact location will depend on where you, as an individual, has fat deposits.
Then, the extracted fat will be purified in a centrifuge.
Finally, the surgeon will use a needle or canula to carefully graft the prepared fat into the area to be enhanced. Most people can return to work after a week.
