Recycle Your Fat!

Green recycle arrows on the palm of a hand on a white backgroundEarth Day was recently celebrated, and people all over the world demonstrated their support for environmental protection throughout the entire month of April. Earth Day was established in 1970 to inform and prompt people to preserve, restore, and improve the environment, and every little bit helps. One way that people who desire to participate in reducing their environmental waste is with fat transfer, also known as “autologous fat grafting.” This procedure can eliminate fat to help you achieve more slender body contours, and rather than disposing of the fat, it can be used to produce a more youthful facial appearance.

Negative Results of Aging

The aging process causes fat cells in the face to deteriorate, and the skin loses its flexibility, known as “elasticity,” as the collagen and elastin break down. This leads to a loss of youthful fullness and firmness in the face over the years, which often causes hollows, wrinkles, and deep creases to develop. As we age, our metabolism also slows down, which makes it more difficult to maintain a lean figure and easier for fat to accumulate in unwanted areas.

A Body Enhancement and Facial Rejuvenation Procedure

Fat transfer achieves body and facial enhancement in one minimally invasive procedure by removing unwanted fat from a particular area of your body and using it to add volume to the face. Almost everyone has at least one area they would like to eliminate stubborn fat from, and the fat transfer procedure harvests this fat through pinpoint incisions. The fat is then thoroughly processed to remove any impurities before being carefully injected into the areas of the face that require rejuvenation.

Fat transfer can be used to improve a variety of areas of the face, such as:A happy girl in a pink sports bra giving a thumbs up on a grassy, city, and sky background
