Why should I consider a fat grafting procedure?
Over time men and women alike may become concerned with signs of aging such as facial wrinkles and sagging or hollowing of the cheeks. Fat grafting may be the right procedure for you if you’ve tried other cosmetic correction procedures without satisfaction for the following conditions:
- Stubborn wrinkles and facial lines.
- Sagging around the middle of your face.
- Deep lines and creases around your mouth or below your eyes.
- Hollow cheeks or a loss of muscle tone.
While fat grafting is not as severe as a face lift, it is a great alternative procedure that will cause your skin to appear younger and smoother. A fat grafting procedure is different in that it removes years of aging from the face without any risk of scarring or the need for sutures and often replaces the need for fillers in the face. It is important to note that a fat grafting procedure does not stop the body’s natural aging process.
What happens during a fat grafting procedure?
Dr. Brou will use a special surgical technique and instrument to remove fat cells from the thighs or abdomen and then redistribute those cells to the facial area to eliminate lines and wrinkles, augment the lips or accentuate cheeks. Before being injected into a new area, your fat cells will be processed by centrifugation. This process eliminates all components of the harvested fat that may not be viable for reinjection. Fat transfers may also be used in buttock augmentations. Fat grafting is a unique option for filling facial imperfections because the material used comes naturally from your own body and is therefore more easily to adapt to the injection site and less likely to be rejected.
How much down time should I expect with a fat grafting procedure?
After a fat grafting procedure Dr. Brou will apply compression garments to the treatment area. Although some swelling and bruising is likely after the procedure this typically does not require medical intervention or prescription pain relievers. Swelling and bruising from the removal site should completely resolve after 2-3 weeks.
Are there any risks associated with a fat grafting procedure?
Fat grafting is unique from other fillers because there is no risk of allergic reaction – it is performed using your own fat cells. However, as with any surgery, fat grafting has potential complications such as pain, bleeding, scarring, infection, swelling and bruising.
Real patient reviews:
“Dr. Juan Brou is an excellent surgeon. He went over and beyond what is expected of a surgeon. He came in over an hour early on December 24th, 2009 so we could get an early start home. If he had not we would not have made it home to Elk City. They closed the interstate 40 right behind us!
There are good doctors and excellent doctors, but very seldom do you find an excellent doctor and an exceptional person together! Dr. Juan Brou is rated excellent in my eyes. Dr. Brou will perform any other surgery I will have done. I admire and respect Dr. Juan Brou.”
