Fat Injections

Want to know the best method to smooth facial lines and wrinkles and create fuller lips? There are several new Injectable fillers, such as Collagen and Hylaform (Restylane) that have been invented and are used quite successfully. However, the problem with these solutions is that they are only temporary and are quickly absorbed by the body. They also create the risk of an allergic reaction. There are synthetic options, such as Gortex, but they have been associated with a whole swarm of problems, most notably, the body rejecting the material. Board Certified, Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Warren Lent, has known for years that the best solution is always to use the patient’s own tissue. The most readily available material is fat cells.

Fat cells can be transferred from one part of the body to another. Because fat is a living tissue, like skin and muscle, it can be transferred from one location of the body to another location. New blood vessels and capillaries grow and attach to the living fat cells keeping them alive. Using this process, the fat cells are used as a permanent and natural solution for the treatment of facial lines and thin lips.

Fat transfer procedures can be used to treat the Nasolabial folds (the deep lines around the mouth), Marionette lines (the deep lines that form at the corners of the mouth), and wrinkles that develop furrowing the eyebrows, deep-set cheeks, slender lips and any other area of unease.

Fat transfer is a brilliant technique for rejuvenating the facial appearance, and it can be done swiftly with little to no down time. You’ll be able to return to work and social activities, quickly. Fat Transfer also relieves patients from the possibility of allergic reactions. Fat injections are considered safe, but like all medical procedures there are some risks which can include bleeding, infection, bruising, lumpiness or dimpling at the donor site.
