Many people do not realise that they can lose a substantial amount of fat in certain areas of the body due to ageing. At first glance, this may not seem like a real problem to you because weight loss is often considered a good thing. However, losing fat in specific regions of the body can cause significant signs of ageing. Fortunately, liposuction fat transfers can provide you with a solution.

What Should I Know About The Facial Rejuvenation Procedure In This Case File?

The patient in this study was suffering from a fat loss in the cheeks due to ageing. Unfortunately, this caused a certain heaviness around the corners of the mouth and jowl, making the patient look older. The heaviness around the mouth corners also caused the skin to fold and wrinkle more.

To correct the problem, Dr Lanzer executed a cheek fat transfer. The cheek fat transfer is a procedure where fat can be added to the cheek area, restoring the volume that has been lost through the natural ageing process.

Thanks to a cheek fat transfer, the patient got to enjoy a more youthful appearance. Dr Lanzer executed a cheek fat transfer, making them appear fuller. During a cheek fat transfer, cosmetic surgery will take fat from one part of the body that is prone to fat accumulation and reinsert it in another. This clearly had some amazing results for this patient, giving her less sunken cheeks and less heaviness around the jowl and mouth corners.

How Does Liposuction Fat Transfer Work?

Liposuction fat transfer is known under many different names, this includes fat injections and fat grafting. During this procedure, several areas of the body can be reshaped or rejuvenated. The procedure cannot only be used on the face though because there are other cases where fat grafting is used for buttock reshaping as well. In general, surgeons can implement a liposuction fat transfer to anywhere from the face and hands to breasts and buttocks.

There are also certain advantages to fat grafting that you will not find with other anti-ageing procedures. First of all, a fat transfer treatment can make you look five to ten years younger. However, it is important to understand that results may vary from patient to patient. It is recommended to speak to Dr Lanzer about your expectations and discuss the best fat transfer procedure for you.

Fat grafting tends to be economically better as well. Synthetic fillers are usually effective for a shorter period of time, so fat grafting can provide a solution for a longer period of time. In addition to that, you can also count that the fat transfer will give your skin a better texture, something that a synthetic filler will not do.

The results of a liposuction fat transfer tend to be more natural as well. Some patients that undergo treatments with a synthetic filler regularly, will show some signs of cosmetic surgery treatments. However, with a liposuction fat transfer, you will get a more natural result without any signs of cosmetic treatment.

Another advantage of liposuction fat transfer is the fact that the required downtime is kept to a minimum. Most patients are able to return home the same day and only a local anaesthetic is used during the procedure.

What Is The Difference With Dermal Fillers?

Patients who are not that fond of dermal fillers will find the perfect alternative in liposuction fat transfers. With liposuction fat transfers you will get a more natural, long-term result. Fat also contains stem cells naturally, which are less likely to be rejected by the patient’s body.

The best anti-aging treatment for you can be determined by the medical staff and surgeon, so do not hesitate to give us a call if you desire more information about anti-ageing treatments.
