Fat Filling is the ultimate solution for treating all areas where more volume is needed, as well as plumbing wrinkles and folds. Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used for the same purposes; however, when a longer lasting filling is needed, fat is the solution. The treatment is done using the patient’s own fat, a fact that has many advantages:
- No possibility of having an allergic reaction.
- No possibility of rejection.
- More cost effective.
- Long lasting, semi-permanent.
It consists of performing liposuction for areas with extra fat, filtering the collected fat, and re-injecting the purified fat in the volume-deficient areas in the face.
The result is a full volume rejuvenation of the whole face, restoring its youth and regaining a harmonious and healthy appearance.
Down time is 4 or 5 days of swelling and mild bruising. The patient can resume his/her normal lifestyle by the end of the 5th Patients are highly satisfied as their self-esteem is greatly improved. Fat Filling is considered the Rolls Royce of fillers.
