Have you ever wished you could take fat from one part of your body where you don’t want it and move somewhere more useful? Thanks to recent medical advances, this process is actually a simple and effective option for facial rejuvenation, breast augmentation, and body contouring. The surgeons at West End Plastic Surgery specialize in fat transfer at our Washington, D.C. practice and offer it as a natural alternative to facial fillers or implants.
Patients from Alexandria, Reston, Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Potomac, and other areas surrounding Washington, D.C. considering fat transfer can request a consultation online to meet with one of our surgeons to determine whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure. You can also call our office at (202) 785-4187 to schedule an appointment.
Are You a Good Candidate for Fat Grafting?
The best candidate for facial rejuvenation with fat grafting is a man or woman who has begun to notice a sallow appearance to the face. Many see deep nasolabial folds, marionette lines, deflation of the cheek bones, narrowing of the temples, or shadows and depressions under the eyes. These changes can start as early as the early 30s. Successful fat grafting requires skin that is not too loose. Most patients are in their late 30s to 50s, but facial rejuvenation with fat grafting can be successfully performed on people well into their 60s and 70s. If you are generally healthy, have a realistic view about the results that can be achieved with facial rejuvenation with fat grafting, and have any of the following conditions, you may be a good candidate for the procedure:
Loss of facial volume in isolated areas, regions, or globally
Wrinkles or furrows on your face or neck
Deep creases forming between the bottom of your nose and the corner of your mouth
A diminished jawline
Loss of facial volume leads to a loss of structural support in the face and the sagging that ultimately follows. Restoration of volume is like blowing up a partially filled balloon, revealing the smooth, youthful contours once again. Facial rejuvenation with fat transfer uses one’s own fat and the stem cells that come along with them to restore volume and stimulate changes in the surrounding tissues to restore youthfulness.
Meeting With Your Plastic Surgeon
Your consultation with Dr. Ruff, Dr. Ramineni or our team of surgeons and their staff is the time to describe your cosmetic goals. Your plastic surgeon evaluates your facial and neck structure, your skin elasticity and facial volume, and your underlying muscle tone to determine whether facial rejuvenation with fat grafting is right for you. Adjunctive procedures will be recommended if needed to create a harmonious rejuvenation. Those might include a neck lift, eyelid surgery, or laser resurfacing. Your surgeon thoroughly explains each technique along with its risks, benefits, and recovery times. You will be asked to describe in detail how you want your face and neck to look after your facial rejuvenation with fat grafting. Good-quality pictures of the face when you liked what it looked like are helpful in understanding your facial volume changes. Working together, you and your plastic surgeon will decide which technique will give you the results you desire
