We’re constantly being nudged to lose fat at this time of year, but in many cases, fat is good. As we age, the fat content in our face – especially in the mid-face and chin – starts to decrease in volume, which draws the skin downwards. That makes our cheeks look sunken, which dramatically ages the appearance of the face.
The solution we can to this here at Mr Sudip Ghosh‘s Milton Keynes cosmetic surgery clinic is natural, simple and effective: a transfer of fat from a part of your body (usually the thighs or abdomen) to the area of the face that needs extra volume. Not only do we utilise a ‘filler’ that that has been created in your own body – making it the safest material possible – the results are a healthier look and instant rejuvenation.
What does a fat transfer procedure entail?
A facial fat transfer procedure works the same as a body fat transfer procedure: fat is removed from one part of the body with a specialised syringe, and then put through centrifugal force to isolate the fat cells. These are then injected into the treated area in small ‘pearls’, in a layered pattern, to ensure the graft will take. Local anaesthesia is used, making it a painless procedure.
What happens after the procedure?
As fat transfer is a minimally invasive procedure, it’s a walk-in-walk-out treatment with zero downtime. There is a possibility of bruising, although this can be easily covered up and they will naturally disappear after a week or so.
Who is best suited for this procedure?
People who want a quick and far less painless solution to facial aging, with a more natural and less detectable result than other procedures – and no risk of scarring or allergic reactions to the filler. To apply for a consultation, please refer to our Fat Transfer page.Leave a reply
