Fat Grafting

Fat Grafting

Fat transfers in Scottsdale Arizona

As facial aging occurs, folds and wrinkles appear as our faces both lose fat and gravity pulls our remaining fat pads downward. Throughout the aging process, collagen and elastin also start to stretch out and wear out helping create frown lines and wrinkles. While aging is a natural process we have many options to help fill and plump where volume has been lost.

There are currently many options available for facial fillers including collagen, hyaluronic acids, calcium hydroxylapatite, poly-L-lactic acid, fat and others. Depending on your individual needs and desires and appropriate filler can be chosen. Fat transfers also called autologous fat transplantation uses a patient’s own fat to plump, fill or recontour the face. Some patients may have allergies to other filler products, others just prefer to use their own fat because it is a safe, natural alternative.

With fat transfers it is possible to have fat removed or liposuctioned from one part of your body and then injected into other areas to recontour the face or augment the chin or cheeks. Fat grafting can also be used for aging hands and post-surgical or post-traumatic contour irregularities. Because the fat is yours there is no risk of allergic reaction. Just like other fillers fat does not last indefinitely and will have to been maintained to keep the results. It can although last for years depending on where it is placed.
