You can tell a lot about a person from their face. You can sense the type of mood they are in, and even get a sense of the things they have accomplished and persevered through during their life. And usually, a person’s face will give away their age as well.
If you feel the aging process is taking its toll on your face and forcing you to look older than you are, then it might be time to consider cosmetic surgery options. For many patients, an intensive surgery is not the route they want to go. But Long Beach residents might be surprised to find out about a less invasive option with a shorter recovery time.
Fat grafting is an alternative to other surgeries that will still allow a person to take up to 10 years off of their face.
This procedure, which was developed by Dr. Kevin Sadati, fills in a person’s face with unwanted fat from other parts of that patient’s body. The natural aging process causes the fatty tissue underneath the face to wear down over time, and this procedure gives a patient a refreshing look that revitalizes their face in a natural way.
One of the reasons this surgery is so successful and yield such long term results is the fact that Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is used to help make the graft viable. The PRP is extracted from a person’s blood just before the surgery takes place, and when the time comes, it is injected into the fat that will be grafted underneath the facial tissue. PRP has natural growth factors in it that speed up the wound healing process, and because it is a natural substance, it gives the patient the long term results they desire.
