Age comes for us all, especially in regard to our face, causing unwanted side effects such as wrinkles and sagging skin. Over the years, cosmetic surgeons have perfected several different treatments to help combat aging, with facial grafting being one such option. Face grafting uses fat tissue from other parts of the body to fill in the loss of volume in your face and help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Here is what you need to know about facial grafting.
Our body has stores of fat tissue that can be harvested and grafted into your face to help increase its volume. While other similar treatments like liposuction remove larger amounts of fat tissue, facial grafting only uses a minimal amount and should not be compared. The fat tissue is commonly removed from areas such as your abdomen and thighs. Only small “droplets” are removed and inserted into your face, so there is a higher chance of the fat tissue “taking” to your treated areas.
Facial grafting helps fill in the loss of volume that sagging skin leaves behind. Usually this volume loss is seen around the cheek bones, eyes, and jaw. Facial grafting can best treat these areas for a more comprehensive look following the procedure.
Facial grafting not only increases the volume in your face, but also provides additional benefits. Your skin will appear smoother due to the additional fat tissue in the face. Your skin tone and texture will even better than ever before. Wrinkles and other fine lines around the treated areas will not be as noticeable as they were before the treatment.
Face grafting is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require any kind of incisions that are prone to leaving scar tissue behind. This treatment can provide you with incredible results while having little risk for complications. Most patients can resume light daily activities immediately following the procedure.
