Aging takes a toll on the face and the body. When you start seeing signs of aging such as lines, wrinkles, and volume loss in the face, you may start considering your options for correcting these imperfections. Likewise, as you get older you can develop stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. What if you could tackle both of these issues with one procedure? Here’s how.
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that removes excess fat from the body. A small incision is made in the treatment area, and a cannula is slid inside under the skin where the fat lives. The cannula breaks up the fat and sucks it out with a vacuum feature. Often the fat removed is simply disposed of, but there is another option that could benefit your face as well.
The Argument for Fat Injection
There are a lot of dermal fillers available for diminishing lines and wrinkles and adding volume to the face. Most of these fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural compound found in the human body. However, they also have other chemicals and compounds that make up the filler. If you want a more natural way to fill out your face, you can use fat injection.
Fat injection involves taking the fat removed during liposuction and injecting it beneath the surface of the skin where volume loss has taken place. The fat will restore the volume in your face, which can, in turn, diminish lines and wrinkles. This is an all natural way to add volume to your face, while also being a longer lasting solution than dermal fillers.
