It’s OK To Love Your Fat
- Posted on: Apr 15 2018
Everyone agrees — fat is the nemesis of an attractive body, but you may have good reason to love your fat. Dermal fillers and injectables are excellent non-surgical anti-aging solutions, and so is the extra fat on your body. Fat grafting is a cosmetic procedure that can be used to enhance facial contours and soften wrinkles.
Using Your Fat for Cosmetic Procedures
Most cosmetic procedures focus on eliminating extra fat from your body, not using it to achieve your cosmetic goals. Fat grafting is a technique that uses your fat to add volume to the skin. Fat transfer and injections can be used to:
- Enhance cheeks and lips
- Reduce lines and wrinkles
- Make subtle changes to the nose
- Fill in skin depressions
Micro-lipoinjection begins with harvesting the fat from and the area where you have a little extra, such as the buttocks, abdomen, and thighs. Liposuction is used for this part of the procedure. If you are already considering liposuction as a body contouring option, we can easily reserve some of the fat for your micro-lip injections. In other cases, the amount of fat that is removed is negligible. After the fat is removed, it is purified and prepared for the injections. One of the greatest benefits of fat injections is that the amount of fat can be precisely controlled to produce the desired improvements.
Why Choose Fat Grafting
Maybe you feel that fat grafting is a great way to use or fat, or perhaps you prefer to avoid injections of dermal fillers. Whatever the reason, fat transfer and injections are a great way to improve your appearance. To be considered for micro-lip injections, you should have good skin elasticity in the treatment area, as well as adequate donor fat somewhere on your body.
