With ageing, we accumulate fat in places where we don’t want and lose it where we rather not.
The face is a place where this entire changeover happens.
Injections of fat under the skin of the face are done to restore its lost volume. They are very reliable and long-lasting treatments for the ageing face.
Harvesting several millilitres of fat from the abdominal wall (stomach region) and transferring them to the face to pump-up the skin helps to get a younger look.
The procedure is done under anesthesia. Minimal bruising is usual. Bruises go away in several days.
Injected fat is different from synthetic fillers. The injected fat stays longer and lasts for years.
