This is a facial rejuvenation patient holding her pre-op photo, allowing us to see the results achieved with facial fat grafting alone – it was all done with fat grafting.
When patients come in talking about a Facelift, they generally want to look younger and point out the things that they don’t like about their faces… but when you stretch your facial skin back, it results in a “pulled” look, with the corners of the mouth also stretching back.
Besides a Facelift, there are several options for treating the signs of an aging face. As our dermis thins, facial skin loosens, and wrinkles develop, many patients seeking short-term results turn to Botox. For patients who are not interested in a Facelift, but want long-lasting results, the alternatives are Laser skin resurfacing or Fat grafting.
In this video I talk more about Fat transfer, specifically, how long fat grafts last. If you frequent various plastic surgery blogs and portals, you might be aware there is a wide variation in the types of techniques that surgeons are using. Thus, there is a wide variation in their results, and a wide variation in their opinions about whether fat injections are permanent.
In this video I talk about the reasons why I often find myself recommending fat grafts to the cheek, and to the face, when patients come to me wanting a rejuvenation of the face… wanting to, in general, look younger. Fat grafts, also known as Fat transfer or Fat injections, are a great way to rejuvenate the face.
