Aging can cause a host of changes to the human body, especially in the face. During aging, many people notice the loss of facial contours that are used to create definition in the face. Lost facial volume and sagging skin are a normal and natural part of the process of aging, but not everyone appreciates what it does to their appearance.
At Sand Plastic Surgery of Spokane, we offer facial fat transfer, which is an excellent method to restore some of your lost facial volume. It provides restorative effects that will last a long time.
As you get older, the skin starts to lose some of its firmness. This is due to the slowdown in producing compounds like elastin and collagen. There are several ways you can handle this issue, but a facial fat transfer is one of the most effective available today.
As the name suggests, this procedure helps restore lost volume and definition to areas of your face by transferring fat cells located in other parts of the body. Due to the way this procedure works, it is completely biocompatible. There are no limits to the volume and level of full correction that you can achieve.
In addition, fat is one of the best sources in the body for stem cells. These cells are filled with growth factors that offer even more restorative benefits. When fat is transferred from other locations to the face to add volume, stem cells are moved at the same time and you gain all of their extra benefits.
One of the benefits of stem cells is an increased amount of collateral tissue growth. This applies to the area of treatment as well as locations beyond that. This contributes to an even more substantial improvement in your facial harmony.
At Sand Plastic Surgery, we do a great deal of planning to ensure you get the best facial fat transfer possible. This includes taking a deep look into the proportion and balance of the face.
When you come to our Spokane offices, we’ll share everything you should know about the procedure. In addition, we’ll share what your options are for combining procedures if that is needed to create the results you desire.
In addition, we’ll make sure you have no unanswered questions before the procedure begins. We’ll also walk you through the aftercare experience. You’ll have all the details you need about what you can expect after the surgery has been done.
Local anesthesia is used for the procedure. Sedation may or may not be required. Our facial fat transfer procedure can utilize fat from several sites on the body, but the best option is somewhere that could use body contouring to begin with. The waist, thighs, and abdomen tend to be common choices.
After the fat has been acquired, it will be prepared and processed. The processing method will vary based on where you have the fat transfer done. Our procedure allows us to maximize the number of stem cells used to create a better restorative effect on your face.
You can generally expect some firmness and swelling. This tends to be minor and resolves within a week after the surgery. The transferred fat will create a blood supply in the new area, which can create some swelling and inflammation.
At Sand Plastic Surgery, our commitment to innovative techniques combined with experience ensures the most effective and safe procedures available.
