Mini Face Lift - Fat Injection
With age, the skin loses the underlying supporting
tissue and so becomes loose and sags. Sun, other environmental toxins and
smoking damage the skin. The effects of aging are most visible on the face
There are many different procedures that can be done for a face lift -
depending upon your age and the areas of the face most affected. There are
many quick-fix procedures advertised, but these are usually by non-trained
persons and the effects are not long lasting. If it sounds too good to be
true, it probably is.
Fat injection is the new and fast becoming most popular method of improving
facial and neck tone. Fat is removed by liposuction from an area like thigh,
buttock etc. It is then injected with fine needle and syringes under the
skin around the face. This fat fills up the tissue spaces under the skin and
provides support to the skin of the face. The face thus appears more supple
and younger looking.
This can be used as a double procedure
- liposuction for body contouring by removing fat from difficult areas and
then using this fat for injection in the face and neck area. Mini Face Lift
can be done under local anaesthetic but do discuss this with your surgeon.
The bruising around the face will settle in a few days. Having a good
balanced diet, no smoking and regular exercise are the key to maintaining
healthy facial colour and tone.
