As people continue to work toward more natural options in their own lives, such as eating organic food and using exercise to help decrease anxiety, it makes sense that many patients are interested in more natural alternatives to cosmetic procedures. Instead of undergoing a more intensive surgery, patients in Laguna Beach have the option of fat grafting. This cosmetic surgery is less invasive and is a more natural approach to improving a patient’s facial appearance.
This procedure has the same impact as a face lift. It fills out a person’s cheeks, helps to fade away wrinkles and can even help enhance lips as well. The difference is that instead of stretching the skin that is there, this procedure refills a person’s face with the fatty layer that wears away over time.
Pioneered by Dr. Kevin Sadati, this innovative procedure takes fat from another area of the body where that fat is unwanted, such as from the buttocks or thighs. It then grafts that fat underneath the facial tissue so that it rejuvenates a person’s face in a natural way.
In addition to utilizing a patient’s own body fat instead of implants, this procedure also uses natural plasma in order to ensure the graft is viable. Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as PRP, is extracted from the patient at the same time of the procedure and is then directly injected into the fat that will be grafted. The PRP is full of natural growth factors that help speed up the wound healing process, which ultimately reduces the recovery time for the patient.
To see if this procedure is the right one for you, and to find out more specifics about this innovative technique, set up a consultation with Dr. Kevin Sadati today. From there you can take the next steps to looking fresh and young once again.
