This is a relatively new and exciting focus in facial aesthetics. Replenishing facial volume by itself or in conjunction with other surgical procedures can greatly enhance facial rejuvenation and restoration of youth. Fat is harvested from other parts of your body that have unwanted excess and then re-injected as a filler to plump up volume depleted areas. New methods and techniques are being developed daily to improve this method and its consistent long-term results.
We are very involved and have taken measures to maintaining ourselves in the forefront of this technology. We feel that this is the wave of the future and will become one of the mainstays of facial rejuvenation. We have used this technique safely and effectively in the temple area, eyelids, cheeks, naso-labial folds, lips, chin and jaw-line. Finally, a natural, permanent filler.
Fat Grafting Solution Houston
If performed without other procedures, Facial Fat Graphing may be performed in Dr. Layton’s office under local anesthesia. It can also be performed in an accredited surgery center under general anesthesia if combined with other surgical procedures. Fat is carefully removed or harvested from another area of the body using a tiny cannula or suction device. The fat is processed and then loaded into syringes attached to small diameter blunt injection cannulas and injected into the deficient areas. This produces soft, natural and lasting results. You can go home the same day. Some swelling may occur but usually subsides within a few weeks.
