The loss of facial tissue is one of the common signs of aging. As you grow older, you might start to notice your cheeks sagging or wrinkles forming on your forehead. One of the ways to rejuvenate your face is to undergo a fat transfer surgery, where fat from another part of your body is literally transferred to your face to plump up sagging areas. This procedure may allow you to hit two birds with one stone. Aside from regaining your youthful appearance, you can also slim down problem areas as the fat will be taken from your thighs, stomach, or arms.

Fat transfer to face surgery is an excellent solution for people who may be allergic to implants and substances such as silicone. Since the fat comes from your body, simply transferring it into another location poses no risks of substance rejection. Original fat is often safer than foreign fillers. Of course, there are also drawbacks. There is a possibility that your body will reabsorb the transferred fat.

Natural fat is also said to be harder to manipulate and might case unevenness, but this problem has already been solved. Just look for plastic surgeons who make use of derma rollers. A derma roller is a technique wherein a hand roller that comes with tiny needle pricks and punctures the second layer of the skin or the dermis. This sends a message to your brain telling it to repair cells that promotes collagen production. This also helps to speed up the healing process as new blood will be flowing into the site where the derma roller is used. Anaesthetic cream or local anaesthesia will be applied to numb the facial skin beforehand.

The actual fat transfer to face will require at least three derma roller treatment sessions. Each session has a quick recovery period of about 24 hours. There are no serious side effects, except that the skin might look a little sunburnt.

Make sure to consult with a plastic surgeon first before you decide to undergo fat transfer to face surgery. Some people are not allowed to undergo procedure mainly because they don’t have enough fat to transfer to their face. Depending on the condition of the face, the plastic surgeon may suggest a facelift instead. To ensure the best results as well as your safety, contact a licenced plastic surgeon experienced in fat transfer to face surgery.
