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 disperse under your skin until removed. Once enough fat has been collected, your surgeon will prepare it for injectable purposes.Fat transfer can restore the youthful fullness or contours of the face. Also regarded as fat augmentation, this procedure can even improve facial asymmetries to improve the balance of your features.
Fat injections in face how long does it last?
