Facial Fat Transfers
The fatty tissue under the skin on the face helps to create the fullness and firmness of the facial shape. When too much fat is lost, the face can appear gaunt and older. It is common to lose fat in the face with age, which can diminish facial contours and enhance lines or wrinkles on the face. One option to restore a more youthful appearance is with facial fat transfers, available at Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery Center.
Fat transfers are performed by liposuctioning fat from one area on the body and injecting it in the desired areas on the face. This has the dual benefit of removing a small amount of fat from the abdomen, thighs or other areas and placing it where it can benefit the facial appearance. First, the liposuction procedure is performed, and fat is sterilized and purified before it is grafted to the face.
Most facial fat transfers can be performed through injections, requiring no incisions on the face. The purified, filtered fat cells are injected under the skin. Special techniques are used to ensure the fat is smoothed and positioned to create the desired fullness and volume.
