Will Facial Fat Grafting Fill In The Flat Areas Of My Face?
Most of us know that injectable dermal fillers can restore lost volume or plump up naturally flat facial features. While the results of injectable fillers can certainly be stunning, many men and women prefer a more natural and longer-lasting alternative to fillers. For these patients, Dr. Jeanine Thomas and the award-winning team at Devine Aesthetic Solutions in Arlington, TX are proud to offer the revolutionary BeautiFill® laser liposuction and fat transfer system. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of facial fat grafting with BeautiFill, and find out whether this exciting treatment may be the facial rejuvenation solution you’ve been searching for.
What causes facial volume loss?
If you’re like many people, you may notice yourself starting to look older but can’t pinpoint exactly what it is about your face that has changed. Aside from lines and wrinkles, one of the most notable signs of facial aging is volume loss. As our body’s natural supply of collagen and elastin dwindles over time, our skin loses both firmness and volume, leaving certain features looking deflated, flat, and worn out. To restore lost facial volume – or simply to enhance features that are naturally thin – many men and women turn to injectable fillers. However, some patients prefer the more natural approach and longer-lasting results that are possible with facial fat grafting.
What is facial fat grafting?
Also known as fat transfer to the face, facial fat grafting is a minimally invasive procedure designed to reverse age-related volume loss and/or augment certain features by harvesting unwanted fat from one area of the patient’s body and transferring it to their face. Devine Aesthetic Solutions is proud to be among the only practices in the area to provide facial fat grafting with the groundbreaking BeautiFill laser lipo plus fat transfer technology.
During your fat transfer in Arlington, a topical anesthetic will be used to numb the treatment area(s). Dr. Thomas will make a tiny incision at the site of liposuction, through which a handheld cannula will be inserted. The BeautiFill system will then deliver laser energy to dislodge the fat cells, after which the fat will be removed, purified, and prepared for transfer in a single, efficient step. Finally, Dr. Thomas will strategically inject the fat cells into the face to create your desired look.
Where can BeautiFill fat transfer be used on the face?
Common features that can be enhanced with facial fat grafting include:
- Hollow cheeks
- Flat cheekbones
- Sunken circles under the eyes
- Deep lines
- Facial folds (nasolabial folds)
- Thin lips
During your initial consultation for BeautiFill in the Fort Worth area, Dr. Thomas will examine your areas of concern, discuss your desired outcome, and explain all of your available options in detail to determine whether facial fat transfer may be right for you.
How long does BeautiFill last?
Patients considering a fat transfer to the face should understand that, while the results can last for many years or longer, the procedure can’t stop the aging process completely. Furthermore, significant weight fluctuations can cause the transferred fat cells to shrink or swell, which can affect or even compromise your results. For the longest-lasting results, patients should be committed to maintaining a stable weight after treatment.
