Fat Grafting To Face in the Atlanta area
You can feel more confident about yourself when you are pleased with your appearance. Fat grafting to the face is a procedure to make you look years younger. It is also called autologous fat transfer or grafting, facial fat rejuvenation, fat transfer or micro-lipoinjection.
Natural Changes with Age
As you age, your collagen and elastic material under your skin begin to break down, leading to wrinkles and a sagging look. Your face can look thinner or haggard instead of full and healthy when your subcutaneous tissue, or structures under the surface of your skin, are less youthful.
Getting a More Youthful Appearance
Facial fat grafting involves taking fat from one area of your body and implanting it in your face. It can go to your lips, between your nose and the corners of your mouth, in your cheeks, and under your eyes. You will have a local anesthetic to numb the areas where the fat is being removed and injected. There can be swelling at the injection site for 1 to 3 days after the procedure.
The procedure helps fill out your skin without using outside materials. Your own fat is natural, soft, and, of course, safe for your own body with no concern about allergic reactions. The results can be visible for 3 months up to 3 years or longer.
