Why have fat transfer to the face instead of dermal fillers?
The benefit of fat transfer to the face over dermal fillers is that the results of the procedure are long lasting and permanent.
70% of the fat will 'take' in the face and continue to behave exactly like normal fat. This fat will be long lasting, add structure and, because of the included stem cells, improve skin and scar quality. It is also possible to inject higher volumes of fat into the face, given its natural ('autologous') properties.
By contrast, the results of dermal fillers tend to fade after 6 months of your treatment and there is only so much that can be injected at any one time.
Fat transfer (fat transplantation) uses processed fat from your own body to re-contour and restore volume to facial areas that have become sunken with age, thereby rejuvenating your face and restoring a more youthful appearance. This may be achieved using the fat transfer technique.
