Dermal fillers are one of our most popular cosmetic services. Fillers are used to restore lost volume, particularly on the face where the skin is prone to thinning. It’s this thinner skin that leads to wrinkling, lines, and hollows. There are several different types of injectable fillers such as those with hyaluronic acid like Juvéderm and Restylane, and Calcium hydroxylapatite which is found in Radiesse.
Another option that is becoming a more and more popular dermal filler is fat injections or fat transfers. There are several benefits to using your own body fat as a facial filler, not the least of which is ready acceptance by the body.
BBL Concept Applied to the Face
A fat transfer to the face is a similar process to a Brazilian Butt Lift that harvests fat from another area of the body and uses it to build and shape the buttocks. In a facial filler procedure, the process is very much the same. You’ll first undergo a procedure that is similar to liposuction, but on a much smaller scale. This procedure removes fat from one area of the body such as your abs and waistline, buttocks, or thighs. Once the fat has been removed it is purified and then injected into the treatment areas of the face.
Unlike man-made fillers, fat transfer fillers last longer and look just as good. Since the filler consists of your own fat cells, they actually bind to your body once blood supply has been reestablished, helping the fat cells survive and thrive.
Fat transfers are a good choice for anyone wanting the most natural filler possible, however, since fat removal is required, the procedure takes longer and is slightly more complex than a traditional filler injection.
Best Applications For Fat Transfer Fillers
Fat transfers are best at restoring fullness to the face due to lost volume. They are most commonly used to plump skin around the eyes, add fullness to the cheeks and restore volume along the jawline. By injecting the area with fat cells, loose skin is plumped up, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles and sagging.
