After your skin has experienced years of wear and tear from the elements, facial revitalization can be a welcomed improvement. Facial fat transfer could be the best option among the many available facial procedures out there.

This rapidly growing technique is great for the cheeks, nasolabial folds, temples, mouth and jawline, as well as under the eyes.

One critical prerequisite of any fat transfer procedure is the health of the fat cells. After the plastic surgeon has purified the fat to end up with the healthiest cells possible, these cells will be injected into their new locations.

Naturally, some of the cells will be reabsorbed and metabolized in the body, but a strong percentage of cells usually live on. These thriving fat cells are the ones that have successfully connected with the blood supply, and they will provide a younger and healthier look to the face for years to come.
