Fat Transfer: the Fountain of Youth?

April 19th, 2013

Is fat transfer the Fountain of Youth? Perhaps, because regenerative medicine offers stunning new advances in natural procedures for facial rejuvenation.  As your face ages, fat is lost and often changes position. This change is usually presented as wrinkles and skin sagging. The natural fat transfer technique 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 where it is placed.  Whether it is filling the hollowness of the lower eyelids or plumping the cheeks, replacing a diminished fatty layer is an effective solution for the aging face.  

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.

Next time: My patient writes about her own experience with fat transfer.

Anti-Aging of the Future: Fat Grafting

March 20th, 2013

Last week in Miami, I participated in the  American Society of Plastic Surgeons 1st Regenerative Medicine Summit focusing on fat grafting.  This is the wave of anti-aging treatments of the future.

Regenerative medicine has the real potential to change the   way we treat the aging body, impacting both reconstructive and aesthetic surgery. It is the future of medicine happening right now. ASPS’s summit focused on clinical applications of regenerative medicine and fat grafting for  both aesthetic and reconstructive surgery.

Of particular interest to me are the advancements in implant-free breast enlargements and incision-free facial rejuvenation.  This is an exciting time to be a plastic surgeon.  More on that next.
