As we get older, we begin to lose the layers of fat around our check bones, chins, and under our eyes. Extreme weight loss and illness can also contribute this loss of structure, resulting in a sunken, aged appearance. While there are several things that can be done to improve the look of your face, such as a face-lift or chin implant, one procedure stands out among the rest. The Facial Fat Transfer is unlike traditional facial rejuvenation procedures because it uses your own cells to restore the healthy definition of your face, and the results are permanent.
The Facial Fat Transfer procedure, at Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery, offers a chance for you to take years off your appearance through a minimally invasive procedure. Volume depletion, that comes as our facial structure diminishes, can be reversed. The lax and droopy skin that occurs from aging can be transformed, back to a full, smooth form. Wrinkles, lines, and other facial depressions will also be improved. All areas of the face can benefit from a Face Fat Transfer: the hollows under your eyes, sunken upper and lower cheek bones, the chin, lips, jaw, forehead, and even the bridge of your nose.
Dr. Vitenas has been performing the Facial Fat Transfer procedure for years, perfecting his skills and artistic technique. The first step in the fat transfer process is to harvest the cells from a donor site on your body, often the hips, thighs, or abdomen. These delicate, living cells are carefully cleaned and processed. Once the tissue is purified, Dr. Vitenas will use a very tiny needle to inject the cells into the predetermined locations of your face, bringing about the desired fullness and prominence.
The entire Facial Fat Transfer procedure will take between one and two hours to complete; while you may have slight soreness for up to 72 hours, you will feel well enough to return to work the next day. There is no scarring with a Facial Fat Transfer, since there are no incisions. Your natural looking results will be noticeable immediately, but they will also continue to improve over the following 10-12 months, as any swelling dissipates and the fat cells flourish.
