What skin concerns can be addressed with facial implants/fat grafting?
One of the major causes of aging is facial volume loss, as it contributes to wrinkles and sagging skin. The loss of fat, especially in the cheeks, jawline, and eye area makes facial contours more pronounced.Facial implants and fat grafting can both address the problem of facial volume loss.
- Facial implants improve facial volume and rejuvenate contours in areas such as the cheeks and chin. The procedure involves the use of implants to enhance the balance and proportion of the face. Implants are most often placed in the cheeks, chin, and jaw. However, the type and size of the implants used will depend on your specific aesthetic goals.
- Facial fat grafting or fat transfer is a minimally invasive procedure that involves moving fat from one part of the body where there is excess, and transferring it to the face. The fat is first harvested using a gentle liposuction procedure and is then purified, before being injected in the sunken areas of the face. Fat transfer can be used to add volume to the cheeks and hollows below the eyes. It can also soften the appearance of wrinkles such as marionette lines and nasolabial folds.
