It’s never fun to notice that your face is beginning to lose that youthful glow, especially if you’re feeling as though these changes are starting to take place well before they should. When the early signs of aging start to show themselves, your options aren’t limited to invasive surgery. At Elevé MedSpa, we offer a number of minimally-invasive procedures, like facial fat grafting, which can help you restore and rejuvenate your appearance, without requiring that you take any time out of your daily routine.
Facial Fat Grafting
While it’s fairly common to notice fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of volume in the facial region, many might not realize that a facelift is far from your only remedy. By removing fat from elsewhere on the body, our team of highly experienced cosmetic practitioners can inject it into the face and neck, replacing lost volume and generally smoothing over some of the earliest indications of the aging process. Reach out and set up your consultation, to learn more about what this incredible procedure can do for you today!
Is Facial Fat Grafting Right for Me?
When it comes to the restoration and rejuvenation of the facial region, there are quite a few options you have at your disposal, of both the surgical and non-surgical variety. During your consultation, we’ll get to know your cosmetic goals, and help you to land on the specific procedure that will unite you with the results you’re actually looking for.
You’re likely a great candidate for facial fat grafting if you:
- Have early signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles
- Have adequate fat in the donor area
- Would like to trim down a troublesome area (like the thighs or abdomen)
- Have proper skin laxity
- Would rather not undergo a surgical procedure
How Does Facial Fat Grafting Work?
Facial fat grafting involves a two-step process, as we’ll have to remove fat from the donor area, before we purify it and then inject it back into the treatment area. We’ll use a liposuction technique to remove fat from the donor site, which is typically the abdomen or hips. We won’t need much, so this part of the process is not too extensive.
We’ll refine the fat and purify it so that it’s ready to be injected into another part of your body, which will be completely safe and free from any risk of complication, since we’re using your own organic material. The fat will then be carefully injected into the treatment area, with your aesthetician working meticulously to create the results you desire.
Once the treatment is over, you’ll be able to return home. Local or general anesthesia is typically used for the liposuction procedure, and your recovery period will depend on the specifics of your procedure. We’ll help you understand exactly what to expect, and will schedule follow-up appointments to ensure that you’re healing well.
If you’re wondering how you can turn back the clock without having to undergo a full-on facelift procedure, facial fat grafting might very well be the perfect solution to you. Reach out and set up your consultation to learn more about this procedure and how it can help you today!
