A Facelift That’s Right For You

February 6, 2019

Are you troubled by the wrinkled and sagging skin of your face? Do you wish there was a way you could have your youthful appearance back? Why not try out a Modern Facelift? Modern Facelift procedures include a deep-reaching facelift with facial micro fat grafting techniques. The facelift procedure can be opted for by almost anyone and can be extremely beneficial with only a little scarring here and there.

THE LOW DOWN ON FACIAL MICRO FAT GRAFTING

Facial Micro Fat Grafting is a new cosmetic technique that involves harvesting fat from one area of your body and moving it to another. When you age, the fullness in your face will eventually degrade. The days of your youthful good looks will begin to fade away and the skin in your facial area will start to sag. Fortunately, a modern facelift can help out immensely.

The micro fat grafting technique makes use of micro lipo-aspiration methods to borrow fat from places where the patient’s body has an excess of it. The surgeon’s job here is to purify this fat and re-inject it into the facial areas that lack fat and look hollow. What this will do is provide your face with an improved amount of fullness, making your face look refreshed and rejuvenated.

AREAS WHERE THIS EXCESS FAT IS INJECTED

The most common areas to inject the harvested fat are the nasolabial folds i.e. laugh lines found on the sides of the mouth, forehead creases, the hollow sunken in areas underneath your eyes, and to fill in the hollows in your cheeks.

WHERE DOES THE FAT COME FROM?

The fat used to fill in the treatment areas can be harvested from different parts of your body. Fat deposits from your inner thighs, hips, flanks and lower abdominal area are extracted to supplement the fat loss in your face.

BENEFITS OF FACIAL MICRO FAT GRAFTING

Let’s look at some of the advantages of the facial micro fat grafting procedure:

• Your skin takes about three to nine months to absorb dermal fillers. As a result, you must keep up with regular injection schedules. However, this isn’t necessary for fat injections.

• Since the fat used in facial micro fat grafting is derived from your own body, the chance of infection is minimal, unlike with dermal fillers.

• Your improved look will boost your self-confidence and self-esteem, making you look and feel beautiful.

RECOVERY

Swelling is commonly experienced in the modern facelift procedure. It usually doesn’t last for very long but this duration varies from person to person. In some cases, it may last a week – in others, it may subside even more quickly.

Consult a doctor beforehand to discuss your goals from the procedure and to understand what you can expect after it has been completed. Make an initial appointment to discuss and figure out which area of your body you want your fat to be extracted from and where you want it to be injected on your face.

Last but not the least, only have the surgery performed from an experienced and licensed medical professional.
