Aging skin typically tends to sag, wrinkle and crease. This is directly a result of the skin’s natural tendency to lose volume. With a technique like fat grating, there is a way to help fight the signs of aging by using your own natural body fat!
Fat grafting is a cosmetic surgical technique where fat is taken from one area of the body and transferred to another area. Usually, fat is taken from the hips, thighs or buttocks, places where there is excess fatty tissue. This can be done with liposuction or with a syringe. The fat is then injected into areas of the face like the cheeks and neck in order to create a more youthful, perky appearance.
To learn more about fat grafting, consult with an experienced professional like Dr. Edward Miranda.
