People who want a younger looking face but don’t want extensive cosmetic surgery have discovered the benefit of fat grafting. This procedure, which was pioneered by Dr. Kevin Sadati and is popular in the San Juan Capistrano area, removes fat that is unwanted from other parts of a patient’s body and applies to to the layer under the facial skin. This brings new life to a person’s face by filling out their cheeks and other facial areas that are prone to wrinkles and sagging skin.
One of the reason’s that patients are electing to have this procedure over other more common options is that it has a high rate of success and is a more natural procedure. This is largely because of the use of Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP. PRP is drawn from a patient’s blood at the time of the procedure and is injected into the fat that will be grafted. This helps the graft become viable and allows the fat to make itself a permanent fixture.
Many people have questions regarding PRP’s safety. However, it is a perfectly safe and natural method of allowing a graft to be successful in a person’s face.
PRP has been used in surgery for more than 10 years, and not just in cosmetic surgeries. Other procedures it has been used for include cardiovascular surgeries, dental surgeries and orthopedic surgeries. Since it is created at the time of the surgery and is moderated by a physician, PRP is more than safe. Also, because it is made from the patient, it does not pose an infection risk.
