As we age, we tend to lose the layer of fat directly beneath our facial skin, which can leave it looking drawn or hollow. The contours of our faces begin to change, leaving us looking tired and older than our years. This can start as early as our thirties and can be one of the earliest signs of aging. If you are ready to look younger, refreshed, and rejuvenated, fat grafting may be the answer.
Free fat transfer, or FFT, involves a minimally invasive surgical procedure to transfer fat from one area of the body and reimplant it in the nasolabial folds, cheeks, under-eye areas, lips, or elsewhere to restore an enhanced, youthful appearance to your face.
Sculpta, or poly-l-lactic-acid PLA, is another wrinkle remover option that stimulates collagen production deep within the skin. Scupltra can be done as part of a Liquid Facelift, and, when done over several weeks, allows a gradual, natural-looking transformation that will correct wrinkles and replace lost collagen.
Other options that can help you look more youthful include Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, along with a fat transfer to restore your facial contours, rejuvenate your look, reduce the look of wrinkles, and act as a scar remover.
