The cheeks, eyes and jawline are dramatically impacted by lost volume in and under the skin. Usually due to aging, you can notice more sagging, lines and hollowing in different areas due to lost fat and thinning skin. There are many ways to combat lost facial volume to help maintain a youthful appearance, but many are injectables that have only temporary results. Another option is facial fat grafting, a facial procedure specialty of Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio at Uptown Body Contouring in NYC.
The face loses fat under the skin as a normal part of aging. Plus, the skin loses elasticity and volume. The result can be more lines, wrinkles and folds around the nose, mouth and eyes. Hollows under the eyes and at the temples can make the eyes look sunken and tired. The jawline loses definition as the skin sags. To plump under the skin to restore a youthful appearance and contour the face, Dr. Del Vecchio uses fat transfer techniques, or fat grafting.
What Is Facial Fat Grafting?
Unlike hyaluronic acid or other facial fillers that are synthetic, facial fat grafting uses your own fat to add facial volume. Fat is harvested through liposuction from other areas of the body and purified to be used in a fat injection. The fat transfer is performed using advanced techniques to ensure lasting, natural-appearing results. Small amounts of fat can be injected around the mouth, nose, chin, eyes and in the cheeks to create a more youthful appearance. Unlike synthetic fillers, fat transfers are completely natural and offer a longer solution to lost volume in the face.
