Fat Grafting

As we age, the face can begin to take on a sagging, gaunt appearance. The cheeks can appear sunken, and facial volume at the temples can reduce. Lines develop from mouth to chin (marionette lines) and bags under the eyes can appear, eventually leaving your face looking old, tired, and saggy. Although a facelift or other surgical procedure can produce dramatic results, facial fat grafting is an option that can restore a more youthful appearance by restoring lost volume.

Restoring a Youthful Facial Appearance with Fat Grafting

No other substance is more easily accepted by the body than your own natural tissue. Facial fat grafting makes it possible to restore lost volume and plump areas that appear sunken, all with fat harvested from your own body. Fat contains a high percentage of your own stem cells, and when injected into the sunken areas, can create a dramatic improvement in appearance.

How Does Facial Fat Grafting Work?

The procedure involves extracting fat from another area of your body – where you have unwanted fat deposits, such as the abdomen, waist, thighs, butt, or back. The fat is then purified through a special process. Once purified, it can be injected into facial areas that have lost volume due to aging. The stem cells in the fat have a rejuvenating effect on the facial tissue and skin that can restore a more youthful, fresh appearance as the days and weeks pass.

The facial fat grafting procedure, from start to finish, must be performed with great care and meticulous attention to each step. Initially, in harvesting the fat, the procedure used is extremely important, as you want to preserve the integrity of the cells so they are incorporated into your body as live, healthy cells once injected. In the next step, the areas into which the cells are to be injected must be correctly chosen to achieve the most natural, pleasing restoration of volume – not appearing too plump or distended. Dr. Scarpidis uses precision techniques, and has the background and experience necessary to perform facial fat grafting that appears natural, with the increased volume in all the right places.
