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.

Lip Wrinkles: Natural Fix

March 31st, 2014

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. Is there a natural fix for these wrinkles?  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).
