Do Cheek Fat Injections Dissolve if I Lose Weight?

The cheek area is one of the first places to lose volume as we age, and many people turn to cheek augmentation to try and regain the loss of youthful fat.Fat grafting is often the preferred method to enhance the cheeks, because itproduces natural-looking results. One of the common questions doctors often get asked about the procedure is – Do cheek fat injections dissolve if I lose weight?

Fat grafting for cheeks
Fat grafting for cheeks is a procedure that involves the use of a patient’s own fat to restore volume to the cheeks. The fat is first harvested from a donor area that has unwanted fat, which is typically the abdomen or thighs. It is then processed in a centrifuge to separate the fatty portion, before being injected into the cheeks.

Do fat grafts dissolve if you lose weight?
When the fat is injected initially it does not have its own blood supply. However, the speed with which it develops influences the amount of fat that survives, but some of the fat will die while the blood vessels are developing.

Once the grafted fat gains its own blood supply, it will remain in the long term. The fat cells usually behave in a manner that is consistent with the site from which they were taken. The fat will not ‘dissolve’ if you lose weight, but there will be some volume loss if there is significant weight reduction.

Having said that it’s important to note that people who are considerably overweight or intend to lose a lot of weight, are not ideal candidates for fat grafting procedures.

What is the best treatment method to get rid of love handles?

Many people struggle to get rid of stubborn fat such as love handles, and are often so frustrated they simply try to hide them with clothes. But there’s a better way, because there are range of cosmetic procedures that can help eradicate that extra flab. So what is the best treatment method to get rid of love handles?

What are ‘love handles’ anyway?
Love handles are the stubborn flab that accumulates on the sides of your waist, and bulges over the hips. It’s often the hardest weight to lose, because it usually takes more than dieting and exercise to eliminate it.

Best treatment for love handles
Liposuction is undoubtedly the best treatment method for handles, because it removes fat, and also sculpts the body. There are various non-surgical liposuction options available that use radiofrequency, ultrasound, or laser energy to melt away those unwanted pockets of fat.

BodyFX and MiniFX in Minnesota
At Rocheford Plastic Surgery, Woodbury, MN, we use the BodyFX and MiniFX contouring treatments to get rid of love handles. BodyFX and MiniFX are laser lipo solutions that utilize radiofrequency (RF) energy.

BodyFX is a non-surgical procedure that is done on an outpatient basis, and requires no anesthesia. The RF energy heats the skin and damages the membranes of the fat cells, thereby liquefying the fat before suctioning. The controlled heating of the dermal layer of the skin, has the added benefit of producing new collagen, which promotes skin tightening.

Is HCG compound safe?

The HCG diet has gained a lot of press in recent years, because of testimonies from people who say they lost 1 pound per day while on the diet. HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin)is a hormone that is naturally produced in large amounts by pregnant women. It is also available an injectable prescription hormone, but is HCG compound safe.

About HCG
HCG is said to trigger weight loss, as it increases metabolism and accelerates fat burning, allowing patients to utilize stored fat for fuel, without losing muscle mass. The HCG diet consists of a healthy meal and snack plan, supplements, and HCG injections.

HCGis also available as oral sublingual drops, and topical creams, and should only be obtained with a prescription from a doctor.

Is HCG compound safe?
There have been some concerns raised about the safety of HCG, because there are internet companies and other sources that advertise it for attractive prices. If the price seems too good to be true, chances are that it is an unregulated batch of HCG.

HCG is a prescription drug and is therefore regulated by the FDA, to ensure that it meets safety standards. Therefore if you are interested in going on the HCG diet, be sure to consult a licensed physician that is familiar with the use of HCG for dietary purposes. That is the best way to ensure that you are getting HCG that has been compounded by a licensed compounding pharmacy, in the US.

Clients in Atlanta, GA, can contact Cobb Wellness & Aesthetics Roswell, GA for more information. We have an established HCG diet program that is designed to help you with rapid weight loss, and you can be sure that you are getting a good product.
