Redistribute Your Assets with a Fat Transfer
Over the years, time and gravity help shape our faces in ways we may not appreciate. As we age, our muscles and skin lose some of their elasticity, and the cushion of fat – which provided the foundation for smooth and creaseless skin – dissipates.
The resulting facial creases and depressions can be corrected by implanting some material to take the place of the lost fatty cushion. When one's own fat is used for implanting, the possibility of allergic reaction or rejection is eliminated.
Fat Transfer is an effective procedure in minimizing creases and grooves. It also can be used to augment lips, cheeks, the chin or earlobes (to help minimize tearing from wearing large earrings), recontour the face, and even adjust some body contours.
