As we age, our bodies quit exfoliating and building collagen. Over time, we lose subcutaneous fat and the skin becomes noticeably thinner. This pattern makes the skin appear hollow and tired. Thinner patients tend to see more of this pattern. Fat grafting by Cosmetic Surgeon Vernon Hills is also coined fat transfer, micro-lipoinjection or autologous transfer. Fat grafting has been water-cooler conversation quite some time and some say controversial.
Patients have options these days; temporary or permanent filler or fat grafting. Fat grafting is a more natural method by cosmetic surgeon Vernon Hills IL to restore volume in the cheeks, temples folds and more. Fat grafting has become increasingly popular to avoid unnatural circumstances of over-stretching the skin. However, fat grafting can be combined with a facelift or other surgical procedures for advanced solutions for the best candidate.
Fat grafting is ideal for patients who do not want to lose overall weight, rather remove fat from a specific area to another. A common fat transfer the cosmetic surgeon in Vernon Hills perform is from the abdominals to the backside – it’s a smooth even transfer with long-lasting results. Extra fat can be implanted to the lips, the nasolabial folds (the folds from the corners of your mouth to your nose), the under eye areas, the cheeks and other parts of your face and body. It is minimally invasive and can help correct problems such as acne scars and restore a youthful look to an aging face.
Fat grafting is attractive to many people who do not want downtime but crave the sought out perfection, due to its simplicity and minimal recovery. Most people have enough fat to qualify for this procedure with cosmetic surgeon in Vernon Hills IL. Most fat grafting procedures are performed under local anesthesia for the site where the fat is harvested and regional anesthesia.
One of the only cons of this procedure is that your body tends to absorb it at least to some degree. The amount of fat that is implanted and then absorbed by your body varies depending upon patient; we have seen mostly great results when transferring from body to body. Much depends on factors including how the fat was removed, how it was concentrated and treated, how much was injected and where it was injected. Obviously your own body’s ability to break down fat or metabolism is an uncontrollable factor.
A great candidate is healthy, no pre-existing conditions or diseases and open to all outcomes of the procedure with a Vernon Hills cosmetic surgeon.
