Facial Fat Grafting
Facial fat grafting has become a very popular and permanent alternative to temporary facial fillers. Over the last decade, we observed that a large component of facial aging involves loss of fullness from the cheeks. This change subsequently results in a prominent nasojugal groove, a groove that extends obliquely down the cheek from the eyes. This deflation of the cheeks results in redundant skin folding around the mouth, as observed by prominent nasolabial folds. With the advent of micro-fat (stem cell) transfer techniques, fat grafting has become the mainstay for a near permanent replacement of this volume loss.
Facial fat grafting results below demonstrate how facial aging signs can be erased with a minimally invasive procedure. Facial fat grafting can be performed in an office setting with local numbing medicine only. No anesthesia and a quick 20 minute office procedure are attributes that make this procedure attractive to many patients. Please make a consultation with Dr. Mowlavi to learn this procedure can help you.
