Why Choose Fat Grafting?
There are a number of benefits of opting for a facial fat graft to address your aging concerns. Only a qualified physician familiar with your specific circumstances can accurately assess whether this option may be the best for you, and assist you in making an informed decision. In general, the reasons why so many of our patients opt for facial fat grafting in Beverly Hills include:
Natural in both appearance and approach
Fat is the substance that naturally gives your skin its volume, shape, and contours. While other filler options seek to imitate the natural effects of fat, why not go for the real thing? Your surgeon will carefully inject the fat into your face in a way that imitates natural fat distribution for a completely natural look, unlike other techniques that can make it obvious a procedure has been performed. What’s more, although synthetic fillers are demonstrably safe and biocompatible, some of our patients are uncomfortable with the idea of introducing synthetic materials into their bodies – fat grafting is an all-natural alternative.
Rather than just minimizing the appearance of volume loss in the face, our Los Angeles fat transfer addresses the issue itself by restoring lost volume. Unlike temporary dermal fillers that are reabsorbed into the body, fat transfers, though not considered a permanent solution, result in long-lasting improvements.
Stem cells and their benefits
Fat harvested from your own body has the unique advantage of containing revitalizing stem cells. Stem cells are capable of changing into different types of cells in the body, both replacing and repairing surrounding cells. These stem cells rejuvenate the face from the inside out for long-lasting, youthful results.
The "two birds with one stone" effect
Who hasn’t joked that they wished they could somehow take the fat from their thighs or stomach and place it somewhere else on their body? Well, now you can. The nature of the fat grafting process lends itself to dual benefits, as fat is both removed through liposuction or a similar procedure from the harvest site, and then used to restore volume where it has been lost to aging.
