When it comes to getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles across your face and forehead, you have several options including facial fillers, Botox, a facelift, and fat grafting. As a surgical procedure, that Dr. Kenneth Dembny uses to help restore volume and fat loss to your face, fat grafting can be done in his office in just a few hours. From its longevity to getting multiple benefits, this article will discuss three of the reasons why you should consider fat grafting. Read on to learn more.
It Can Last Long
The fat grafting procedure itself is fairly extensive. By surgically removing fat from one part of your body and then injecting it into your face, some of the fat will be lost in the process or will be naturally absorbed by your body. However, the fat that is successful at sticking can last for long periods of time— in fact; it can last for years. Compared to facial fillers and Botox which last anywhere from a few months to a year, the results from fat grafting are drastically better.
There’s No Allergic Reaction
Although it is rare for people to get allergic reactions to facial fillers or Botox, it still is a possibility. With fat grafting, however, because the process only involves using your fat to add volume to your face, there is no chance of having an allergic reaction. So, if you are allergic to injectables or if you have particularly sensitive skin, then you may want to consider fat grafting.
You Get Two For the Price Of One
During the fat grafting process, fat will be extracted from an area of your body like your abdomen, upper thighs, or buttocks and then it will be injected into your face. Although not a ton of fat will be taken from your body in the process, it will still be enough for you to notice an improvement. In essence, you are getting a slimmer body and a fuller face all in one procedure— it’s a buy one, get one.
