Fat Injection in Cleveland: Because Extra Fat Is Not Always Bad
A good number of people who visit our Cleveland plastic surgery practice are not looking for a surgical procedure that can improve their appearance but are interested in adding volume to various areas of the body through a less invasive procedure that still offers long-lasting and very natural-looking effects. If you have excess fat in certain areas of the body, it can be harvested and re-injected to areas where there is volume deficiency and requires augmentation.
What can fat injections treat?
Face. Facial fat transfer can reduce the appearance of laugh lines, forehead wrinkles, lines between the nose and mouth, and crow’s feet. If you have acne scars, it can be filled in using your own fat. Sunken areas, such as the lips and cheeks, can benefit from fat transfer as well.
Hand. Fat can be used to add volume to wrinkled areas in your hands. It plumps up these areas and improves skin quality over time.
Skin indentations and depressions. Indentations and depressions in your skin caused by liposuction can be corrected by fat transfer, too.
What are the benefits of fat injections over other cosmetic treatments?
- The body tolerates fat injections very well.
- Results look natural and are long lasting.
- The procedure is safe with no risks of allergic reactions and toxicity.
- It is a non-invasive procedure that can rejuvenate the face.
- It offers more permanent correction compared to dermal fillers.
Am I a good candidate for fat injections?
You need to have donor sites where fat can be harvested. It is also important that you don’t have a medical condition that affects blood circulation to be a good candidate.
