Fat Grafting Volumizing
About Fat Grafting Volumizing
Aging is a combination of issues that can include descent of facial fat but it can also include some loss of fat of the face, known medically as atrophy. Restoration of fat has become a routine in facial rejuvenation. Fat is usually harvested from the tummy or thighs, separated into its component parts, and then precisely reinjected into different areas of the face to create that youthful appearance.
What to Expect
There can be bruising at either the sites of fat harvest or where it is injected but typically resolves quickly. Swelling can be present early on but that too resolves quickly. Most studies have shown that typically 40% of the fat injected stays forever. Because of that further fat injections may be needed.
