Why Fat Grafting Treatment Can Last Longer Than Others
- Posted on: Apr 30 2023
Among all the effects of aging, the loss of volume below the skin and the appearance of sunken areas below the cheeks can be the most troublesome and challenging to treat and still give a natural appearance. Along with a loss of volume in the lips, many people are left looking for a safe and easy way to increase volume beneath the skin for a more youthful look.
Many treatments available in the cosmetic and aesthetic field provide great results with minimal risks and involve nothing more than a simple injection. Most treatments take less than 30 minutes and do not have any downtime or recovery after.
However, the results from most of these treatments are temporary and begin to fade after a year or 18 months after each treatment. Although they are safe enough to be repeated, some people may prefer a longer-lasting or more permanent result.
Fat grafting surgery or fat transfer augmentation is a minimally invasive procedure that is as safe as the other treatments but often can provide many longer-lasting results. Where the other treatments may use hyaluronic acid or other formulas that are gradually absorbed and metabolized by your body, fat transfer surgery uses your fat cells from elsewhere in your body.
Similar to how difficult it is to remove stubborn or unwanted body fat around your midsection, the fat cells used for augmentation or grafting tend to stay in place after injection and become part of the facial structure. Although some settling and fluctuation of size may occur, most patients find any change is proportional to the rest of the body, and you lose or gain fat.
Another great benefit of fat transfer surgery is that since the fat is harvested from your body, it can help shape or sculpt other areas and has minimal risks of rejection or reaction.
