Facial fat grafting in Montgomery AL is often considered the ideal filler material to help restore volume to the face, as it comes from the patient’s own body and therefore provides a soft, natural look and feel.
How facial fat transfer works
Facial fat transfer replaces and/or enhances the existing structural framework that supports the skin soft tissue envelope of the face. Fat tissue is delicate, and the fat cells can be damaged as fat is removed from the abdomen or other body areas — or during re-injection into areas of volume loss in the face.
The damaged fat cells will dissolve and be removed by the body. After the fat cells are injected into the needed area, the remaining undamaged fat cells must obtain enough oxygen to be sustained. Those that do not will also dissolve and will be removed by the body.
Therefore, the goal with facial fat transfer is to use enough fat in each area to have a substantial improvement after the body clears the damaged and oxygen-deprived fat cells. We use state-of-the-art fat harvesting, purification, and injection techniques to increase survival of the injected fat cells.
