Body fat makes an incredible filler because it’s natural and able to be sculpted. Thanks to its natural properties, higher volumes can be injected and formed to fill out areas of the face and breasts for the exact desired look.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) March 31, 2014
Artisan of Beauty, a Beverly Hills, CA plastic surgery medical practice under the direction of board-certified surgeon Dr. Tim Neavin, can now improve volume and shape on the face, buttocks and breasts using a patient’s own body fat as a natural filler. Fat grafting removes fat from unwanted areas on the body, such as the abdomen or lower back and injects into an area where filler is desired. Compared to artificial fillers, the natural fat injected into skin is maintained in the body permanently and completely safe.
Body fat has millions of stem cells, which research is showing to be the fountain of youth. The stem cells associated with transferred autologous fat improve the quality and texture of the skin. These skin improvements can be seen immediately after the procedure and skin integrity continues to improve for years to come following the fat injection.
“Body fat makes an incredible filler because it’s natural and able to be sculpted,” said Dr. Neavin. “Thanks to its natural properties, higher volumes can be injected and formed to fill out areas of the face and breasts for the exact desired look.”
Fat grafting is a procedure that can be done under local or general anesthesia. Attention to detail in the fat removal, preparation and injection is critical for ensuring long-term results. “While more time consuming, precise fat injections in small aliquots in deep planes of tissue can create beautiful, smooth, permanent results,” said Dr. Neavin.
Fat can be injected into the face with no visible scars and very small incisions are made in inconspicuous areas of the buttock and breast.
There are two components to recovery after a fat grafting procedure. One is the donor site where fat is taken from either the abdomen or lower back. Often patients combine a fat grafting procedure with liposuction, which can increase downtime. The donor site will be sore for a few days. The second recovery component is the grafted site, which may include initial swelling. A return to a regular routine as soon as possible is highly recommended.
Fat grafting offers patients the benefits of taking fat from an undesirable area and using it to enhance the face, buttock or breasts. Unlike silicone fillers, the patient’s own body fat is a natural filler and offers permanent results.
