Facial Fat Grafting and Stem Cell Rejuvenation Los Angeles, CA
Facial fat grafting involves liposuction of an area of of your body (usually the stomach area), purifying the fat, and reinjecting the purified fat into the face to improve skin texture and quality as well as add volume to depleted aging faces. Restoring an aging face’s volume gives the appearance of usefulness and gives a lifting effect. In addition, stem cells present withing the abdominal fat of an individual can be collected and grown to greater numbers and then reinjected with the fat.
Dr. Hughes trained with some of the best and most well recognized facelift surgeons in the country while receiving cosmetic surgery training at Harvard. Several of these surgeons routinely use facial fat grafting as a way to increase volume in volume deficient faces either in conjunction with face and neck lifts or as a separate procedure.
The procedure involves harvesting a small amount of fat by a liposculpture or liposuction technique, usually from the abdomen or medial thighs where stem cell and fat quality tend to be high. This fat is then sterilely processed to produce a very pure fat medium that can be injected in very small aliquots into areas of deficiency.
Fat grafting is a virtually scarless facial enhancement procedure with few risks and minimal downtime. It has the potential to provide dramatic improvements in facial contour and facial wrinkles and lines. Dr. Hughes recommends this procedure to many patients who have been facial filler patients, because fat grafting, if performed correctly, is 90% permanent. This property of facial fat grafting obviates the need for repeated filler visits, which are time consuming and costly.
