Fat loss in the face is common as aging occurs, changing the shape of the face and lips. Cheeks may become flatter or droop, while lips become thinner and wrinkled. Replacing lost fat under the skin can have a rejuvenating effect, helping you look years younger. Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, offers precise facial fat transfers for those looking for a more youthful appearance to their skin and facial features.
Facial filler injections are a cosmetic face and neck procedure that are often used to combat lost volume under the skin caused by aging issues. However, these dermal fillers are usually synthetic and have a limited time of effectiveness. With facial fat transfers, fat is harvested from other areas on your body (buttocks, hip or abdomen) and grafted or injected under the skin in the desired area on the face. There is no risk of allergic reactions to the fat transfer, as it is from your own body. Plus, the results may last for years, much longer than any dermal filler injection.
Benefits of Facial Grafting
Lost fat in the face and lips and thinner skin from reduced collagen can allow the skin to droop, causing lines and wrinkles. Lips lose their fullness, cheeks show nasolabial lines and skin can droop under the eyes. Fat grafting or injections can restore the fullness under the skin and have a rejuvenating effect. Some of the benefits that can be achieved with precise facial fat transfer procedures include:
- Reduced midface lines and wrinkles
- Improved facial contours
- Reduced eye bags
- Fuller lips
If you want long-lasting added volume in your face or lips, a facial fat transfer procedure may be right for you. Contact our office in New York to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rosenberg to learn more about fat grafting facial rejuvenation and other cosmetic procedures we offer.
