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.

Patient Comment: Fat Grafting for Lips

April 3rd, 2013

Trish P. writes:  “I recently had lip augmentation via fat graft. I cannot tell you how happy I am and amazed at how natural it looks. My lips are symmetrical and there are no lumps, bumps or appearance of a duck bill. The procedure was a breeze and the healing process was very short. I did have a puffy face for a couple of weeks and I avoided running for 1 to 2 weeks as I was tender on my abdomen where the cells were harvested. All of which I was made aware prior to the procedure. As always, Dr. Bashioum and his staff were fantastic. This was my second procedure with Dr. B and certainly not the last. He is an amazing surgeon that truly cares about his work and his patients.”

Thank you Trish for kindly sharing your experience with our readers.
