Facelift with Facial Fat Transfer
Many different changes occur to the face as it ages. The skin loses elasticity, forming lines and wrinkles. The tissue sags, and fat under the skin dissipates or moves. A facelift using facial fat transfer can address these aging factors. This is done by both lifting the skin and repositioning fat in the right places to create a more youthful appearance. Dr. John Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery is one of the most skilled facelift plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills, offering several facelift options, including a facelift with facial fat transfer.
The general facelift Dr. Anastasatos provides addresses the main indicators of an aging face. These include sagging jowls, nasojugal folds (lines under the eyes), nasolabial folds (smile lines) and the descent of the malar pads in the cheek. Lifting the mid and lower facial skin and tissue to a more youthful position can address many of the signs of aging. When combined with a brow, eye or neck lift, the look can be complete. However, some patients may have excessive loss of fat under the skin. To achieve a softer, youthful appearance, a facelift with a facial fat transfer may be required.
Creating Youthful Contours with Fat Transfer
If there is not enough fat under the skin, a facelift may not look natural. The normal curvatures of the face require some fat to support the skin and create the right contours. Many people lose fat in their face as they get older. Using a fat transfer, grafting or injections from another area of the body can create the volume and padding for a more youthful appearance to the cheeks and face.
