Natural Lip Wrinkle Fix: Fat Grafting

June 26th, 2013

Lip wrinkles or sometimes referred to as “smokers lines,” are the lines that radiate out from the lip margin.  They can be the result of aging, sun exposure, smoking, and /or genetics.  They usually make a person look older.  Women generally dislike them because their lipstick runs into the wrinkles, giving a pronounced pursed look. Interestingly, when lip lines become more apparent, it is often combined with a loss of lip volume or fullness at the same time.  These changes contribute to the appearance of facial aging.

Fortunately there are new choices to reduce lip lines, besides the injectable artificial fillers. Advances in regenerative medicine has ushered in revolutionary changes in many anti-aging procedures. Is regenerative fat transfer the Fountain of Youth? Perhaps, because regenerative medicine offers stunning new advances in natural procedures for facial rejuvenation, including restoration of youthful lips. Nipntuck Naturalâ„¢ features this new fat graft injection technique, which now allows us to replace facial fat loss.  Simply stated, starting with liposuction, we gently remove your own fat cells from selected areas and then they are carefully transferred to another location.  The regenerative properties of these fat cells are particularly effective, because the fat cells become a natural living part of the tissues wherever it is placed. Not only can the lines be corrected, but the lips can be restored to more youthful size and shape, as well.

This revolutionary technique is not limited to facial rejuvenation. Fat grafting is an outpatient, clinic-based procedure and the quick recovery time is changing many aspects of cosmetic plastic surgery today. It is an ideal solution for patients preferring  more natural choices for the newest options in cosmetic surgery and represents an exciting time in the field of medicine.

It is important to seek qualified professional advice when considering these procedures. Most cosmetic surgeons do not charge for patient consultations. Here is a link to find a board certified plastic surgeon near you,  The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

Happy 80th Birthday Joan Rivers

June 24th, 2013

Happy 80th Birthday to #Joan Rivers, a true trailblazer for publicly embracing cosmetic surgery.   Joan’s career has spanned decades and is perhaps best known for her sharp wit and snarky comments on the Red Carpet, covering star-studded arrivals to events like the Emmy’s and the Academy Awards. The comedian and host of E!’s Fashion Police candidly rebuffs the criticism of her many procedures, “I wish I had a twin, so I could know what I’d look like without plastic surgery!”

While Miss Rivers was a pioneer for admitting to having had cosmetic surgery and poking fun of herself in doing so, plastic surgery is more common now among older women than ever before.  This may be attributed to factors such as availability of accredited outpatient facilities nationwide, developments in anesthesia, and greater public acceptance of considering elective cosmetic surgery. Since better knowledge of nutrition  and fitness  has helped to increase our longevity, I find that my patients are saying, “why not stay looking your best at any age?”
