Fat Grafting in Modesto
Fat grafting is a natural approach to restoring a youthful look to the face that does not involve removing the skin, stretching the skin, or the risk of unnatural looks resulting from a facelift.
Fat grafting is taking small amounts of fat from one part of the body and reimplanting it elsewhere. This fat can be implanted in the nasolabial folds (the folds from the corners of your mouth to your nose), the under-eye areas, the cheeks, and other parts of your face.
It is minimally invasive and can help correct problems such as acne scars and restore a youthful look to an aging face.
How is Fat Grafting done?
After the patient has been treated with a local anesthetic, fat cells are extracted from the abdomen using a syringe with a small cannula. The fat cells are then specially processed before being injected deep within the facial structures.
What can I expect?
Some of the fat injected will be absorbed by the body. Depending on how and where the fat was harvested and concentrated, where it was injected, and how well you heal all will determine the amount of fat absorbed.
Besides reshaping your face, many patients find that because the harvested fat is rich in stem cells, fat grafting also helps correct skin conditions and slows the aging process by reducing wrinkles and skin tightening.
