Interested in restoring or adding volume to your face? Consider facial fat grafting, a procedure in which facial volume is added through the use of fat cells from other areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs or hips.
Facial fat grafting can be employed to address a variety of issues. Various signs of aging such as wrinkles, folds, and flattened, hollow areas like the cheeks and temples can make a person look older or fatigued; these can be filled with this procedure. And if you feel that your lips could use plumping, in some cases transferred fat can add that volume.
If you are found to not be a candidate for facial fat grafting, there are other options, such as injectable facial fillers like Juvederm Voluma. Voluma can add lift and contour to the cheeks and temples and Juvederm is most frequently used for adding youthful contours and surfaces to the areas around the lips and mouth.
If you’re interested in one or more of the many uses of facial fat grafting or any of the other options mentioned above, please contact our Lake Forest office and schedule an appointment.
