Signs of aging in the face and neck areas can be incredibly frustrating...but not everyone wants to undergo a fully invasive surgical procedure in order to correct the types of fine lines and wrinkles that can cause us to look a few years older than we actually are. At Elevé Plastic Surgery, we offer a number of minimally-invasive procedures, like facial fat grafting, that can help you look younger and fresher, without missing a beat from your day-to-day life.
Natural Refreshment and Rejuvenation
Facial fat transfer is a revolutionary new procedure that enables you to enjoy safe and natural refreshment and rejuvenation of the facial area, utilizing fat harvested from your very own body to sculpt and shape results that look naturalistic and subtle. Dr. Markelov is a double board certified plastic surgeon, with extensive experience in the facial area, and he can’t wait to learn how he’ll be able to bring you in line with your cosmetic goals, walking back the clock and generally enabling you to look more youthful and fresher than ever.
Is Facial Fat Transfer Right for Me?
This procedure is great for a wide variety of patients, and is perfect for those seeking a bit of facial rejuvenation, without the painful surgery or frustrating recovery period that can sometimes accompany a full-on facelift procedure.
Facial fat grafting can be a surprisingly effective way to treat the following issues:
- Haggard or tired appearance
- Laugh lines, or nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Wrinkles and creases
- Crepey skin
- Lost elasticity
- Lost volume
- Eye bags or hollows
How Does the Actual Procedure Work?
Facial fat grafting is actually quite simple and relatively straightforward, consisting of a two-step process. The first step involves harvesting fat from an area of the body that has an ample amount to donate (we typically target problem areas with extra bulges, sometimes offering the secondary benefit of trimming down the donor site).
Once removed, the fat is purified, and then carefully injected into the treatment area, restoring volume and allowing Dr. Markelov to sculpt and shape the results that were discussed during your preoperative consultations. You’ll be able to say goodbye to lost volume, wrinkles, and other facial issues, and enjoy a youthful glow!
Facial fat grafting is a quick and straightforward procedure that can naturally enable you to enjoy incredible facial rejuvenation, without having to subject yourself to a full-on surgery, or the recovery time that tends to follow.
