Dr. Michael Boggess is the area’s facial rejuvenation expert. He and the experts at Youthful Reflections have always been at the forefront of providing emerging techniques for facial rejuvenation, including fat transfer, also known as autologous fat grafting. If you need to add volume to sunken cheeks, plump up your lips or fill in deep facial wrinkles, autologous fat grafting is one of the best methods around. It is effective and works well for most people, which is why it is a procedure chosen by many who want to regain their youthful reflection.

How Does Autologous Fat Grafting Enhance the Face?

If you are familiar with liposuction, fat grafting is somewhat like this procedure. The first step includes removing fat tissue from the body, normally the abdomen or inner thigh, through liposuction.  Next, your Youthful Reflections facial expert will inject small amounts of fat into the area where you need a little lift.

Why Choose Fat Grafting? As you grow older, you will notice that your face may begin to lack volume. Signs of aging include sagging, wrinkles, and creases. Fat grafting is a procedure that can help diminish these aging changes, helping you to feel confident again.

Fat grafting may have taken the world of plastic surgery by storm in recent years, but the procedures have been around for more than a century now. It is believed that fat grafting existed as early as 1893. During that period, free fat was used to correct tissue defects. However, the facial fat transfer that is popular now, did not develop until the early 1980s.

How Can You Benefit from Fat Transfer

Fat transfers can provide many benefits for men and women. This procedure is safe and offers long-lasting results. Most patients can tolerate the procedure without any negative reactions. Please take a look at Youthful Reflections’ before and after photos. You will quickly notice the huge difference in the facial composition of the patients who have had a fat transfer procedure. However, the great thing about fat grafting is that the results still look natural.

Another wonderful fact about fat grafting is that it is well-suited for most people. If you have areas in your face that appear sunken, wrinkled or both, the procedure is a good option for you. It also works for those who want a longer lasting result compared to the temporary correction offered by fillers.

Autologous fat grafting is a beneficial solution for individuals who are concerned about signs of aging. For example, if you want to contour your face to have certain areas more pronounced, it is an excellent procedure to consider. You can also choose this procedure to reduce scarring and to fill depressions on your face. The overall result of fat grafting is younger, more rejuvenated and healthier looking skin.

Fat grafting is often chosen by those who have experienced a negative reaction to other solutions. Since this procedure uses autologous fat, which is fat harvested from your own body, you will not have to worry about any type of foreign body reaction, such as rashes, bumps and other related concerns. Using existing fat helps patients avoid allergic reactions because there are no foreign substances involved.
