Your surgeon will always discuss with you and recommend the treatment that is appropriate for you. During the consultation, the surgeon will also explain the treatment, its results and benefits, the duration of the result and the frequency of repeating the treatment.
FAT HARVEST/TRANSFER TO FACE & HANDS
Autologous fat (transferring one’s own fat) is today’s number one filling agent for loss of volume and creases on our faces. Our surgeons have over 25-years experience in fat injection both in London and Dubai. As we age the appearance of creases on our face is inevitable. Even though these creases are part of the normal ageing process and there is nothing we can do to stop it, we can fill out the creases with fat, thus making them decrease or appear less prominent.
As we get older, we start to lose fat from our upper face. This loss of fat and associated loose skin starts to show in the cheek area, giving us a sad, gloomy look. By placing the fat in the upper third of our face we produce an uplift effect, reshaping the face to the more youthful years.
As well as losing volume from the face, the backs of the hands can also lose volume. Therefore autologous fat is the ideal filler to rejuvenate the back of the hands, as well as the nasal labial fold (mouth to nose grooves) or any body depression.
Since it is the patient’s own fat there is no risk of rejection and no possibility of an allergic reaction. This procedure is mainly used to produce a more youthful look and for recontouring of the face, hands and other body contours.
