If you want to slow the natural aging process of the face in a safe, natural, and effective way, regenerative facial fat grafting may be exactly what you’re looking for. We are excited to offer this procedure at our Charlotte, NC practice.
How it Works
Regenerative fat transfer involves using liposuction to remove regenerative cells from a patient’s body, then resizing and reinserting them into the face, neck, or hands for rejuvenation. In addition, this technology has an effect on the underlying bony changes that take place as a person gets older, and is believed to actually slow the decaying of the bone.
The liposuction portion of the procedure uses a small cannula (a small, thin tube) to break up and remove fat. This fat is then passed through a device that creates three differently sized fat particles, which are utilized in different ways.
- The largest-sized fat cells are injected into the deep fat compartments that lose volume with age
- The middle-sized fat cells are injected into the more superficial areas of the face and the hands
- The smallest-sized fat cells are injected very superficially into the skin to improve fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage by increasing collagen and elastin
