I Have Hollow Cheeks. Can a Facial Fat Transfer Make Them Full Again?
Hollow cheeks can develop as the skin between the cheekbones and jawbone become thin. The sunken look comes from the tissues not having enough fat. This can make you look older than you really are, and one of the worst parts is that these cheeks can naturally occur as you age due to depleting fat tissue.
The good news is you don’t have to live with hollow cheeks forever. At MedSuite at Castle Hills in Carrollton, TX, board-certified family medicine physician and medical director Dr. Anam Tharoo and our expert staff have solutions to keep your cheeks looking full through a facial fat transfer procedure. We use the innovative BeautiFill device to restore your face for a fuller, more youthful appearance in Lewisville, TX.
How does the fat transfer with BeautiFill process work?
The facial fat transfer through BeautiFill involves gathering fat cells from a part of your body with excess fat, such as the thigh or abdomen, and transferring them into the cheek area. During your consultation, Dr. Tharoo can review your body to ensure your fat comes from a safe spot without producing potential medical harm.
The laser-based treatment provides a safe approach to fat grafting. The fat cells are liquefied and centralized in one area to make them easier to remove from the targeted area. The fat tissue is vacuumed out of the region through a small opening, which is much easier to manage than what you’d find from a traditional liposuction procedure.
The fat is then purified through a centrifuge machine and transferred to the cheek area. An injection will safely move the fat to the proper tissue, ensuring the spot stays full and firm.
What makes this procedure so popular?
The BeautiFill process is easy for the body to tolerate. Since the practice uses your natural fat, the process virtually removes the risk of an allergic reaction. The fat tissue also lasts longer than various dermal fillers that might weaken and break apart over time in Lewisville, TX.
BeautiFill is less invasive than surgical procedures and doesn’t require any significant incisions or surgical efforts. Since the laser-based treatment liquefies the fat to be moved, it becomes easier for the transfer to work.
How long will facial fat transfer results last?
One reason the facial fat transfer process is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available here at MedSuite at Castle Hills in Carrollton, TX is the long-lasting results. You can expect the fat transfer results will last for about 5 – 10 years on average. The fat tissue is absorbed by the cheekbone area during the first few months after the procedure and will eventually function like all the other soft tissues in the body.
