Orange County Fat Grafting
The natural aging process for most people can have a dramatic affect on their facial features. Normally as people get older, the layer of fatty tissue that lies just beneath the skin starts to shrink. As this layer of fat that supports your skin gets thinner, your face’s shape can change. Your cheeks may flatten or you may develop wrinkles around your eyes and mouth as a result of this disappearing support. Many cosmetic surgeons will advise a patient to have a facelift to correct for these issues by stretching the skin of the face tighter and eliminating some of the problems. Other options include injecting a filler material under the skin to augment the fat layer and provide the lacking support for your skin. Even though these are effective options for most patients, there is a newer approach that solves this problem in a more natural way with less risk and expense.
