If you’re in pursuit of a visage that looks years younger than your actual age, facial injections and Botox treatments simply aren’t going to cut it. While these treatments can certainly help you smooth out wrinkles and minimize deep creases, the fact remains that they don’t help treat one of the biggest signs of aging: loss of facial volume.
Think about it this way: when you were younger, it’s likely that you had fuller cheeks and a more contoured face. Yet as the years went on, you probably lost a considerable amount of volume, due to fat migration and loss of skin elasticity. The end result? Hollow, saggy cheeks and less facial contouring.
The Solution to Lost Volume: Facial Fat Grafting
That’s why Dr. Kyle Song of Song Plastic Surgery in Irvine, California (also serving the greater Orange County area) is pleased to provide his patients with superior facial contouring with fat grafting. This unique and innovative procedure can be used to restore volume that’s lost during the aging process. What’s more, fat-grafting procedures can also provide facial contouring, as the treatment can be used to heighten the appearance of cheekbones, eliminate cheek hollows, and create a firmer and more youthful-looking neckline.
So what is fat grafting, and how can it help you restore lost facial volume?
- Fat grafting involves taking fat out from one section of the patient’s body and injecting it into the area that needs additional volume. In other words, Dr. Song can remove fat from common grafting sites such as your buttocks, hips, stomach, or even the upper part of your arms. This can provide subtle body contouring, which is an added bonus to the facial fat grafting procedure.
- Once the fat has been harvested from the grafting area, Dr. Song will inject it into the patient’s facial area. Dr. Song can tailor the treatment to produce the best results possible, which means that you’ll walk away from the treatment satisfied.
- Facial fat grafting can be done in Dr. Song’s office, which makes this a convenient treatment. Recovery is surprisingly fast; minimal bruising in the harvested area can be expected. Results can be permanent.
