Fat Grafting — Bellevue Injectable Facial Volume
If you’re 40 years or older and have noticed that your cheeks and other areas of the face have lost some of their tissue, you could be a perfect candidate for fat grafting. However, the best way to know for sure is by being evaluated by facial plastic surgeon Dr. James M. Ridgway.
Fat grafting is a process growing in popularity in which unwanted fat is extracted from one area of the patient’s body and reinjected into the hollowed and wrinkled areas of the face. The harvested fat is usually suctioned out using traditional liposuction techniques.
Once injected into the face, the fat must be nourished by capillaries in the area. Naturally, some of the fat will be dissolved into the body while the remaining may become a permanent fixture.
