As we age, we tend to lose volume and fullness in our face. The effect of time and gravity become more pronounced as we age, as the fat in our faces starts to sag.
This can lead to a flat appearance, particularly in such areas as the mid-face, jowls, and deep folds in the areas between the cheeks and upper lip and underneath the lower eyelids. These areas unfortunately become more pronounced with age and steal attention away from your features.
Multilevel fat grafting helps to restore fullness to your face and smooth out deep facial folds. This procedure can be an integral component to returning a sense of youth and beauty to your face. While there are a myriad of dermal fillers available, which can be used restore fullness, some patients are looking for a natural alternative, such as multilevel fat grafting. Being a face and neck specialist, you can be sure that Dr. Lee performs among the best fat grafting Beverly Hills has to offer.
Benefits of fat grafting
Facial plastic surgery techniques are constantly evolving to become safer and more efficient. Even up to a few years ago, faces were thought of in 2-dimensional planes, as opposed to 3-dimensional. That’s why, in the past, poorly executed facelifts left an overstretched or pulled taught quality to one’s face. Dr. Lee always views faces in a 3-dimensional aspect, ensuring your face will appear rejuvenated and natural.
Who is a good candidate for fat grafting?
Multilevel fat grafting can be used on numerous areas of the face, to help improve contour and symmetry. You could benefit from multilevel fat grafting, if you find yourself concerned with any of the following:
- Thin or gaunt face
- Long face
- Mid-face appears flattened, from loss in volume
- Facial asymmetry
- A desire for more noticeable facial contouring, for a sculpted or chiseled look
Multilevel fat grafting
Multilevel fat grafting is used to rejuvenate the face by filling folds and wrinkles, restoring volume to the face. Known as autologous fat transplantation, fat transfer, autologous fat grafts, or micro-lipo injections, fat tissue is carefully harvested from another area of your body, such as your abdomen or flanks, which is done by using a gentle liposuction technique. The harvested fat cells are then specially prepared and injected in the desired areas of the face. Very often, multilevel fat grafting is performed in combination with other coordinating procedures, such as facelift, neck lift, and blepharoplasty, so that you may achieve a balanced, all-encompassing rejuvenated appearance.
Advantages of multilevel fat grafting
- Restores volume with your own natural fat being used in place of an artificial dermal filler
- Long lasting (in some cases, multilevel fat grafting may need to be performed more than once)
- Prevents that undesired quality of looking overtightened or “too done” and unnatural in the facial appearance.
- Your face will appear plumper, fuller, and more perky and youthful.
