More Youthful Lips: Not Fish Lips

April 24th, 2017

Trout Pout Lips

Is it possible to get fuller lips without ending up with fish lips? As we age, the fat layer beneath our skin diminishes which causes the appearance of aging and facial wrinkles. This process also happens to our lips. For the past decade, artificial fillers became the go-to fix to plump up an aging face, buying time before a surgical facelift was needed. When at first, a few injections did the trick, soon to follow was the over-injected, the over-plumped unfortunate cartoon face look. I think we’ve all seen it and I am not a fan. Enter a new technique to restore that fat layer, and restore your youthful look using your own fat. Yes, plumper lips, creating a more youthful appearance is quite possible without resulting in the famous Hollywood “Trout Pout.”

Lipo fat transfer is an ideal clinic-based solution for facial fat loss, such as lip wrinkles or thinning lips, the hallows under your eyes and more. Liposuction fat is first removed from selected areas, next your own fat is transferred and sculpted with facial injections. Fat has naturally high concentrations of stromal cells, and it is believed that these somatic stem cells help rejuvenate and plum the overlying skin.

Lipo fat grafting is a natural alternative to artificial fillers and can be an effective choice offering a quick recovery. Now plumper lips, creating a more youthful appearance is quite possible to avoid without resulting in the famous Hollywood “Trout Pout.” A glance at your plastic surgeon’s Before/After photos offers a reliable evaluation of what to expect.

Tummy Tuck Bonus: Fat Grafting

June 11th, 2015

Lipo Fat GraftingFat Grafting has been called a dream come true. Who hasn’t heard someone say they wish that they could suck fat from one area and reposition it someplace else. A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty surgery routinely includes liposuction of excess fat in the abdomen. A new technique allows plastic surgeons to gently remove this fat and prepare it to be injected in other areas. Lipo fat grafting is an effective technique to enhance breast shape/size or to use as a natural filler for lip wrinkles and natural facial rejuvenation, replacing the use of artificial dermal fillers in anti-aging injections. Other common areas for carefully harvesting excess fat during liposuction or liposculpture are the thighs, flanks and hips. This procedure is one of the most exciting cosmetic surgery developments that I’ve seen during my more than 30 years in practice.
