One of the things that can age you the fastest is the loss of fat from your face, neck and décolleté. Aging skin is characterized by decreased thickness, elasticity, adherence to underlying tissue and loss of collagen production.
While using dermal fillers is one solution for restoring lost volume, there’s another solution. Facial fat grafting, or fat injection, is a procedure that transfers fat from areas where you have excess fat, such as the outer thighs, abdomen or buttocks, and injects it into your face – reducing wrinkles and acne scarring, filling deep creases, plumping lips and building-up shallow contours.
Dr. Graivier has pioneered techniques using rejuvenative cell-enhanced microfat (microfat particles) for skin rejuvenation to fill in such areas as around the eyes and mouth; as well as thicker structural fat for contour enhancement.
It’s time to rethink fat and see it as a resource that can help you stay youthful and give you the fresh face you’ve been looking for. Fat grafting is a more permanent solution to aging skin or scars, is minimally invasive and does not require any traditional facial incisions.
Fat is harvested from the donor site of your body using liposuction techniques. Only small amounts of fat are harvested so this should not be confused with an actual liposuction procedure. The fat is purified and microfracturing is performed. This process activates the rejuvenative cells and results in microfat that has a thicker structure. This cell-enhanced microfat is re-injected with specially designed blunt cannulas into the areas that need augmentation. Fat is often used in conjunction with fractional skin laser therapy for acne scars or with laser resurfacing for deeper facial lines.
