Fat Grafting

Fat Grafting

How can we use fat from one area of the body to enhance another area? Fat transfer (fat transplantation, fat injection or fat grafting) is a medical procedure that uses the patient’s own fat tissue from their thigh, lower stomach or inner knee to increase the volume of fat in the subcutaneous area of the body. Uses continue to develop but some of the most current applications include injection of fat into the breast for augmentation or after breast cancer surgery, cheek and chin augmentation, wrinkles next to the mouth (marionette lines) and the hollow areas under the eyes.

In most applications, the fat is injected down through the skin and into subcutaneous tissue and sometimes muscle to provide a better chance for the fat cells to find a nearby blood supply and survive. Some of the fat does not survive, so typically a surplus amount of fat is injected. Fat transfer provides excellent results, and it is readily available! If you don’t want to use synthetic fillers, fat grafting would be an excellent option for you.

Juvederm: Minimize the effects of aging without going under the “Knife”

For those men and women who are looking for a way to restore their fresh, plump, youthful face without going under the “knife” – facial fillers like Juvederm are an excellent option. Whether the patient is seeking fuller lips and cheeks or a more defined chin, aesthetic enhancements like Juvederm make it entirely possible.

Juvederm is the smooth gel filler that is used to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose by adding volume to the hollowed areas. Commonly injected areas are the nasolabial folds (vertical lines from the nose to the corner of the mouth), marionette lines (vertical lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin) and vertical lip lines (facial wrinkles around the lips). With just one treatment, it is possible to get smooth and natural-looking results that can last up to a year.

The fact that Juvederm is so fast to administer and can be done in a regular in office visit, makes it even more desirable to my patients who are looking for a non-invasive way to restore their youth. And, the fact that the results last for up to a year is an additional bonus!

Everyone will notice but no one will know.
