Medical communities have recently come to the conclusion that aging of the face, hands and buttocks is not only loose skin, but mostly fat loss that causes the skin to droop over to the hollow areas thereby creating the aged look. Replacing volume, however was not so easy in the past as it was limited to temporary fillers. In larger areas such as the buttocks, fillers were not realistic at all due to the large amount needed for volume replacement. Fat was always the best option but until recently the techniques available for fat transfer were unpredictable as was to keep the volume of fat in place. The fat transfer techniques have improved significantly and we combine PRP (platelet rich plasma), growth factors extracted from the patient down. blood, to stimulate growth and repair of the freshly transferred fat. Results are much longer lasting and very natural looking.
The fat is extracted by a simple liposuction procedure under local anesthesia and immediately transferred to the area of volume loss. Patients have minimal down time and are only required to use a compression garment in the area where liposuction was performed.
