As you already know, you can’t stop the clock from ticking. As time goes on, the volume of your face will start to decrease. Wrinkles and lines will appear on your face, and your skin will become loose and start sagging.
However, all is not lost, as you can still restore your facial features and get back that youthful appearance. With facial fat grafting, you can turn back the clock.
What Is Facial Fat Grafting?
Facial fat grafting is a process where Dr. Glassman uses fat from your body to restore the volume in specific areas of your face. There are three stages in this process.
In the first stage, Dr. Glassman will extract your fat through liposuction. Excess fat is gently removed from trouble areas of the body such as your thighs, buttocks, or stomach. In the next stage, the healthy fat cells will get isolated and cleaned. In the last step, Dr. Glassman will inject your fat cells into the areas that require a boost.
Which Areas Can Be Treated with Fat Grafting?
If there are creases near your eyebrows or forehead, facial fat grafting can fill them. If your eyes look hollow due to a lack of volume in the undereye areas, facial fat grafting is the solution. You can also use it to improve the contours of your jawline and temples.
Advantages of Facial Fat Grafting
Facial fat grafting many advantages, including the following:
• Facial fat grafting reduces the appearance of shallow, moderate, and harsh facial lines, along with hollow regions.
• Fat cells have a much longer lifespan than dermal-filler products. Typically, dermal fillers last six months to a year. Facial fat grafting, on the other hand, will last for several years before you need another injection, and in some cases, they can even be permanent.
• Natural fat cells create a more natural feel and appearance than dermal fillers.
• The chances of suffering from an allergic reaction as a result of the transferred fat are extremely low, as these fat cells come from your own body instead of being a foreign substance.
How to Prepare for Facial Fat Grafting
It is vital that you prepare yourself for the procedure so that everything goes smoothly. You should avoid consumption of Naprosyn, aspirin, and ibuprofen for at least two weeks before and after the procedure. They are blood thinners and can cause complications with the treatment and the healing process.
After Facial Fat Grafting
Make sure that you listen to the post-treatment care instructions given by Dr. Glassman in order to get the best possible results. In most cases, you can start engaging in your daily activities within the same day of your facial fat grafting. You typically will not need to take time off of work or experience a great deal of downtime.
You also will not need to wait for changes to occur; instead, you will notice your desired changes immediately after the treatment has taken place. Any bruising and swelling that occur as a result of the treatment will be temporary.
