How to Get Rid of Fat and Wrinkles In One Procedure

Brookes Pittman, APRN | 12/30/2016

A perfect world consists of butterflies, rainbows, and money that grows on trees. Additionally, a perfect world would give you the option to take control of your body in an instant. In fact, in a perfect world, there would be a procedure that would allow you to transfer fat from one part of your body to another. Here at Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery, we try to make all of our patients dreams come true and that's why we offer procedures like a fat transfer. Read on to learn more about this remarkable system and how it can change your life. How Does a Fat Transfer Work? Unless you are a very rare exception, you likely have excess fat on areas such as your upper thighs, midsection, or buttocks. By removing some of the fat from these parts of the body, the surgeons at Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery can then inject that fat into your face to plump and lift it. As you age, your skin starts to lose elasticity and can sag in areas— such as your jowls— that you didn't even know about. Luckily, with a fat transfer our surgeons will strategically inject fat into these parts of the face to give you a more youthful appearance. What Is the Procedure Like? During a fat transfer, the fat will be removed from your body using liposuction. Once it is removed, the fat will then be purified and transferred to syringes. Once the fat is ready, your surgeon will then inject it into the designated areas on your face to plump it up. Depending on your skin type and how your body reacts to this procedure, it may need to be done several times. What Are Results Like? If done correctly and if taken by your body, the results from a fat transfer will be permanent. However, it's important to note that your skin will continue to age and so you will likely have to get more injections later on.
