Fat plays a major role in the facial appearance. The contours of the face depend on fat under the skin to achieve the desired transitions. When fat is lost due to weight loss or aging, the face may look older. The eyes and cheeks can look sunken, contributing to an older, tired appearance. Facial fat grafting is a procedure to restore youthful contours to the face. Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio at London BBL Surgery and Body Contouring is a fat grafting specialist who can create beautiful facial contours with fat injections.
Losing fat under the skin is one of the main culprits of folds, lines and wrinkles. While collagen and elastin reduction also play their role in aging skin, the volume lost under skin allows new lines and wrinkles to form. Facial fillers are often used to combat facial aging, but these are temporary sources of volume. With facial fat grafting, lost fat can be restored for long-lasting rejuvenating results.
Fat Injections for the Face
Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio is an internationally-acclaimed fat transfer specialist. He has transformed the fat transfer field with his advanced innovations for safe and effective fat harvesting and grafting. His techniques for retrieving fat through liposuction and purifying for facial fat injections have been taught all over the world due to their incredible results.
Fat injections can restore youthful contours to the cheeks, around the eyes and even the jawline. Small amounts of fat can be injected to fill in sunken areas around the eyes or to plump the cheeks. Dr. Del Vecchio uses specialized methods to ensure lasting, natural results from precision fat transfers to different areas of the face.
Facial fat grafting is a two-step procedure. First, liposuction is performed on a fatty area like the abdomen or thighs to harvest a small amount of fat. Once the fat is purified and filtered, it can be injected into the desired area. Patients will have small incisions that will need to heal at the liposuction site, as well as healing at the fat injection sites.
Facial fat transfer procedures can create beautiful results. Lines, wrinkles and sagging can be reduced for a more youthful appearance.
