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).

Lipo Fat Transfer: New Advances in Anti-aging

December 13th, 2012

 Body-sculpting or contouring is an effective technique that often eliminates the need for more substantial anti-aging facial surgery.  These new advances in anti-aging have marked a steady rise in the popularity of fat grafting in my practice, or sometimes referred to as lipo-grafting in the media. More of my patients chose contouring, following their consultations to evaluate facial rejuvenation options in our Contouring Clinics. Quick recuperation, along with an added benefit of minor liposuction to harvest fat cells is quite appealing to patients. The non-surgical facelift creates new options.

Nipntuck Naturalâ„¢  is my specialized fat grafting procedure in which aspirated (liposuction) fat tissue is first taken from a donor site, then carefully injected someplace else. Typical donor sites for women include areas of the abdomen, buttocks or flanks.   Fat grafts naturally contain a lot of adipose cells. The regenerative cells are particularly effective for this procedure, because they have the natural ability to become a living part of the adjacent tissue.  Significant anti-aging benefits for the face are now possible, omitting the need for any facial incisions. Fat grafting is  or sometimes called fat transfer, but is essentially the same technique used in regenerative medicine today.
