fat grafting face vs fillers

fat grafting face vs fillers Dermal fillers and fat grafting are used in different areas around the face for specific purposes. Both are effective in smoothing out wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. Further, both procedures can add volume around the cheeks and jawline to improve facial contouring and achieve a youthful fullness to the face. Dermal fillers are a nonsurgical procedure, which makes them more desirable to most patients. Fat transfer, on the other hand, has a surgical element. The fat is usually harvested from the thighs or buttocks through liposuction: a small incision or opening will be made where a small tube will be inserted. The tube will be gently moved back and forth to allow fat deposits to …

double chin removal

Double chin removal Double chin removal recommendations are based on skin tone and quality. People aged 20 to 50 who have more elastic skin may benefit from neck liposuction.

Chin Lipo Recovery Bruising and swelling are common after double chin surgery. Meanwhile, most patients will be able to return to work one week following treatment.

brow lift scars

temporal brow lift scar

Brow lift scars are generally placed so they will be well concealed, frequently within or at the hairline, within a deep forehead crease or at the top of the eyebrows depending on the procedure and type of  lifting. Direct Brow lift Patients with thick eyebrows and significant lateral brow ptosis are good candidates for this procedure. The limitation of this technique is the inability to smooth the entire forehead skin and inability to reduce frown muscle activity.  For these reasons the direct approach is not the first choice in brow rejuvenation and is reserved for patients with very thick eyebrows or patients that have forehead muscle weakness requiring maximal lifting of the eyebrow area.  Scarring is most noticeable due to shadowing from a depressed …

non surgical nose job

non surgical nose job

What is a non surgical nose job and how does it differ from a traditional nose job? Traditionally, a rhinoplasty is a surgery that changes the shape of the nose. It requires anesthesia and considerable healing time because of bruising and swelling, but the results are permanent. On the other hand, a liquid nose job (or non-surgical rhinoplasty) uses small needles to inject filler and to change the shape of the nose without any invasive surgery. As a result, the effects are temporary. It uses inject-able filler to lift depressed areas of the nose. As it is an augmentation procedure, it cannot reduce the size of the nose. Hyaluronic acid is used in this treatment, which is already in our bodies, making it …

The upper lid fold can range from 1 mm (0.039 in) above the eyelash line to about 10 mm (0.39 in).
