Fat grafting has been a popular procedure since 2010. Its usage continues to increase by the day as more people report impressive results from the procedure. Dustin C. Derrick, MD is the lead plastic surgeon at Cosmetic Surgery of DFW for Mommy Makeovers and various other procedures in Fort Worth, TX. Facial fat grafting restores depleted volume in your skin tissues to give you the desired look. Here are just some of the many benefits that you can get from this treatment option.
It Can Address Facial Lines and Wrinkles
Aging can be a nuisance. Apart from causing your body to slow its processes, it also causes the body to lose some of its functions. Collagen is essential in our skin structure. It determines how firm or full our skin is.
Aging inhibits the production of collagen. It also facilitates the body from breaking down existing collagen. These two actions take a toll on your skin by reducing its overall volume. Since the skin cannot shrink at the same rate as collagen depletes, you develop wrinkles.
However, fat grafting can reverse these processes. Grafting fat directly into the facial tissues reduces the rate at which the body loses collagen. In doing so, it addresses the issue of collagen lost by replacing it with fat.
The wrinkles and lines that were beginning to form will stop allowing your skin to rejuvenate. That coveted youthful appearance will return. You can work the fat in any part of your face.
It Can Fill in Scarring
The skin is exposed to the environment. Most of the time, we have challenges taking care of it over time. Since fat grafting is a targeted process, it allows you to select a specific facial area that you want to rejuvenate. You can choose the areas that have suffered the most from scarring and other issues. Fat grafting offers you a workable solution.
Two Benefits in One
If you have some fatty spots that you want to solve, you can use the fat tissues from that zone to use them to fill in various areas. Whether you are interested in facial fat grafting or butt enhancement, this procedure could be just what you have been looking for to achieve your goals.
