If you have been bothered by your wrinkles, a fat transfer could be your ideal solution.
When wrinkles that you never wanted appear, the office of Dr. Thomas Funcik, MD can help. It’s time to explore the possibility of a fat transfer.
What is a Fat Transfer?
A fat transfer, also referred to as fat grafting, is a cosmetic procedure that is becoming a popular choice. Fat is harvested from one part of your body to fill out the facial wrinkles.
For example, fat could be removed from your thighs or abdomen to be transferred to your face.
This procedure could be done to add more volume to your face if there are hollows in your cheeks. In the end, you’ll change the contours of the targeted areas, and you’ll use a natural substance that comes from your body. No artificial fillers are used, there are fewer risks and you don’t have to go through an invasive procedure.
How Does the Fat Transfer Procedure Work?
Dr. Funcik will begin by pinpointing an area of your body where you have enough excess fat to be harvested for the transfer procedure.
The fat is purified and then injected into the area of concern on your face. You can expect lasting results, and you’ll be less likely to have a negative reaction since you are using a substance that was harvested from your body.
Is a Fat Transfer for Everyone?
To benefit from a fat transfer procedure, you have to have enough excess fat on your body for the procedure. If you are in excellent shape, have a slim figure and don’t have excess fat on your body, you may need to consider other options to minimize wrinkles and add volume to your face.
