Facial Fat Grafting
Facial Fat grafting is the only procedure that addresses the symptoms and causes of aging. Facial Fat grafting is unique in that it addresses the cause of aging, repairing bone and soft tissue atrophy while slowing the aging process. The vast majority of patients in my practice look five years younger after fat grafting. Facial Fat grafting is an acquired skill and very technique dependent. I have lectured and published on this subject and have built a solid reputation for great results with this procedure.
Once certain conditions are present, you cannot substitute fillers in place of a face lift. Once soft tissue descent is present and Ulthera® is not deemed an option, a face lift is advised. While a more emotional investment for the patient, the results are routinely highly successful. How do you quantify success? I would define it as replacing what is missing and tightening the underlying facial structures to their former, youthful position without visible scars for a refreshed, natural appearance devoid of any pulling or obvious intervention. Although a difficult emotional decision, to attempt to use fillers when only a lift will do is to risk a much less natural result. Overusing fillers can leave you with as bizarre an outcome as an overdone face lift.
