Facial Fat Grafting Can Correct a Gaunt Appearance

Published on May 19, 2017

With time, age, stress, and other environmental factors, our facial features can lose their youth, radiance, and attractiveness, and our face can start to look gaunt and drawn. The formation of lines and wrinkles on the face can add to this change, making us look much older than we actually are. A gaunt and sunken face can spoil appeal and attractiveness and can add up to 10 years to one’s appearance.

There are lots of treatments available in the plastic surgery market that can help your face look better. If you want to restore facial volume to areas that are gaunt or sunken while smoothing away lines, facial fat grafting is a great option.

Facial Fat Grafting Treatment

Facial fat grafting is the process of removing fat from areas of the body that have excess amounts of fat, like the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and arms, and injecting it into the face to provide volume.

The fat deposits are removed from the specific areas of the body with the help of needles and liposuction. This fat is purified and injected into hollow areas of the face. A major advantage of this method of facial rejuvenation is that the surgeon can control which parts of the face receive extra volume and plumping.

What Can Facial Fat Grafting Help Achieve?

Facial fat grafting has the following benefits:

• It can be used in controlled quantities according to how much facial volume the patient wants to regain. The areas of the face into which the fat is injected and the quantities injected can be controlled.

• Since the fat is being transferred from the patient’s own body, there are no chances of the patient developing any allergic reactions to the treatment. This is in contrast to many other treatments that introduce foreign substances, which can produce unfortunate reactions.

• Recovery is very quick with the facial fat grafting treatment. The patient can resume normal activities in a day or two.

• Facial fat grafting is useful for those people who have undesired and stubborn pockets of fat in certain areas of the body that don’t respond to other methods of fat loss, such as diet and exercise. The fat is removed with the help of liposuction and is used for a better purpose.

Facial fat grafting can help get rid of fine lines, folds, and wrinkles from the face, making it look years younger. It can help fill up voids and gaps in the face and can be injected into areas like around the eyes, cheekbones, and jawline to add fullness and volume to the face and give it life again.
