Fat Transfer Facial Restoration

The facial appearance is fundamental in our social relations; it distinguishes and identifies us in our relationships with others.  A tired and aged face, furrowed by wrinkles, is certainly less pleasant and less capable of achieving social success than a refreshed, harmonious and youthful one.  The loss of volume in some areas of the face, such as the zygomatic region or the cheeks, and the skin ageing are the main processes involved in facial ageing.  A number of treatments can restore harmony and freshness to the face: today it is possible not only to repair but also to replace and regenerate your own face by using your own fat tissue.

For over 30 years, the only surgical rejuvenation procedure has been the facelift, which is aimed to tighten the skin but not rejuvenate the face.  A survey of 100 patients comparing their pictures at present time and when they were 20 years old found that the most important effect in the ageing face is the loss of volume, followed by skin ageing and sagging of tissue.

24K Fat Transfer is a minimally invasive procedure which ensures natural and harmonious results, without any sacrifice of your social life.  24K Fat Transfer technology aims to restore volume and regenerate tissue achieving a natural, safe and long lasting result.

The 24K Fat Transfer Procedures

24K Fat Transfer Technology takes fat from one area of your body and relocates it to another area of your body.  This technique addresses the restoration of lost volumes and regeneration of tissues in facial rejuvenation.  This injecting procedure is safe, simple, effective and long lasting.  It is performed with local anaesthesia, using a special micro cannula to harvest fat, with a preference for the areas where the fat is more compact (the abdomen, gluteus area, and the inner thigh).  Once the cells have been aspirated, it is a matter of removing excess fluids and breaking it down in size. Then, using very thin cannulas or needles, the transplant of fat is performed with implantation in the areas, where corrections of the volume and skin regeneration are necessary (cheekbones, cheeks, lips, eyebrows, areas around the eyes)

What happens after 24K Fat Transfer treatment?

After the procedure patients are immediately able to return to their usual activities.  Some swelling of the treated area may appear for approximately 48 hours and any resulting redness can be covered with makeup.

The transplanted fat remains for a variable amount of time, from 6 months to 3 years, and in part for life, while the transplanted fat cells are activated regenerating the skin. In order to stabilize the treatment in time, patients can undergo a new session after about 1 year.

What should I expect after a 24K Fat Transfer treatment?

With respect to classic fat injections, 24K Fat Transfer technology causes less swelling due to the fact that the fat injected is smaller in sizes and it has a dual action of also being regenerative, thanks to the activity of mesenchymal fat cells. This regenerative activity takes a few months to totally manifest.  Therefore you must expect a gradual, but constant improvement over the first 6 months. In the first days the small bruises will begin disappearing, then the swelling will diminish, but the skin's appearance and tone will continue improving for a long period.
