Face Fat Grafting
As we age, we begin to lose the fat that gives our faces a plump and youthful look. This results in deflation of certain areas such as the cheeks and cause deepening of the facial creases. A fat transfer can fill out cheeks and other areas on the face to enhance volume and rejuvenate that face to a younger look.
Fat transfer, also called autologous fat grafting or microlipoinjection, entails removing fat from one area of the body, and transferring it to the face.
To achieve the best results of a face fat grafting, men and women need to meet the following criteria:
- Be at or near your ideal goal weight.
- Having realistic expectations
- Be a non-smoker, as smoking can complicate both the procedure and your recovery time.
- Be in good physical and psychological health.
