As you get older, your appearance will inevitably start to change. One of the areas where you will see the aging process taking effect on your appearance is on your face. As you get older, the amount of facial volume you have diminishes. Your face becomes hollow-looking, you develop dark shadowy areas, and you just start to look older. If this sounds like your situation, a fat transfer may work for you.
You can think of your face in the same way that you would think of a balloon. When you’re young, your face is full of volume. It can be compared to a balloon that is completely blown up. Your skin is tight, it is smooth, and it is attractive. However, as you get older, your face starts to look like a balloon that is slowly having the air let out. As the air escapes the balloon, the balloon itself becomes more wrinkled, and this is what happens to the face.
Thankfully, these types of facial wrinkles can be treated during a fat transfer procedure. Fat transfers can be used to enhance different areas of your face. There are a lot of benefits to using fat transfers as opposed to dermal fillers. One of the first benefits is the fact that since the fat comes from your own body, you’re not going to have any negative reactions to it. Second, fat transfers are designed to be permanent, whereas dermal fillers are designed to be temporary.
If there are certain parts of your body that have stubborn pockets of fat that you want to get rid of, you can have some of that fat removed and then use that same fat to make your face look younger. That is exactly what a fat transfer does.
