The fat in your face will naturally disappear as you age. While this can lead to a perfectly shaped face when you are a young adult, the loss of facial fat will make it hard to hide the signs of aging once you become middle-aged. The lack of fat will cause you to suffer from a sunken face. It will also make wrinkles, fine lines and other blemishes on your face more noticeable. All of these common signs of aging can be reversed with a simple facial fat transfer procedure.
A facial fat transfer uses your own body fat to restore volume in your face. Injecting fat into your face may seem odd, but it can take several years off of your appearance. This cosmetic procedure can drastically reduce the signs of aging in your forehead, chin, cheeks and under your eyes by filling out the face.
Anyone who has reached middle-age and is looking to reverse the signs of aging in their face will be a good candidate for this procedure. The facial fat transfer begins by removing a small amount of fat from your body. The excess fat will then be put in a centrifuge to isolate and clean the fat cells. The final step of the facial fat transfer procedure is to skillfully inject the isolated fat cells into the areas of your face that require treatment.
Since your own fat is being injected instead of an unnatural filler, a facial fat transfer is a very safe procedure. There is virtually no chance of having an allergic reaction since your own body fat is being used rather than a foreign substance.
Unlike dermal fillers, you can expect to see noticeable results from the facial fat transfer procedure for a very long time. Most people see a drastic reduction in the common signs of aging for several years. It is also entirely possible that the results provided by the facial fat transfer procedure are noticeable for the rest of your life, depending on the situation.
