Use fat grafting to turn back time on facial appearance
- Posted on: May 15 2022
Patients of the Great Neck and Manhattan, NY area who are interested in reducing the appearance of volume loss along with fine lines and wrinkles on the face may want to take time to educate themselves about a procedure known as fat grafting. With fat grafting, patients can eliminate the need for dermal fillers and nueromodulator injections to achieve a more youthful look and instead use fat harvested from elsewhere on their body to get the results they want–with longer-lasting changes!
What is fat grafting?
Fat grafting is a surgical procedure that involves harvesting fat cells from one area of the body (usually the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks) and then transferring them to another area of the body. Fat grafting can be used to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss.
Who is a good candidate for fat grafting?
Anyone who is interested in reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss may be a good candidate for fat grafting. However, it is important to note that not everyone is a good candidate for this procedure, and some with more severe skin laxity and volume loss may be more suitable for traditional plastic surgery procedures.
What are the benefits of fat grafting?
The most common advantages of fat grafting include:
- Improved appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Restored volume loss
- Long-lasting results, so no additional procedures
- Safety and effectiveness
- No risk of allergic reactions as fat is harvested from the patient
Are there any risks associated with fat grafting?
As with any procedure, there are some risks which may include infection, scarring, and unevenness in appearance. It is vital that you discuss the risks associated with this procedure with Dr. Homayoun Sasson before deciding if it is right for you.
How do I determine if I am a good candidate for fat grafting?
At Sasson Plastic Surgery, we encourage patients to call our office to book an initial evaluation and determine if they are appropriate candidates for this or other anti-aging services available at our office. We welcome patients to call one of our two practice locations to speak with Dr. Homayoun Sasson and his team about minimally invasive procedures for the face and body.
