FACIAL FAT TRANSFER IN MEXICO
Facial fat transfer, also called face lipofilling, facial fat grafting, fat injections, is a new procedure in the field of cosmetic surgery. It consists of reshaping the face and rebuilding the loss of volume in the face due to aging. The results of face lipofilling are permanent and most of the time it doesn’t required additional sessions. This method is 100% natural with long-lasting effects, contrary to filler injections, such as hyaluronic acid, which must be injected on a regular basis to maintain the desired result.
As we age, the skin loses its natural elasticity and the tissues sag as time passes. In addition to that, the volume is lost in the tissues under the skin over time, making us appear older than we feel. Traditionally, the first two factors have always been corrected by surgery, while the loss of volume was treated with the use of fillers.
These permanent artificial fillers can lead to serious problems and should be avoided using them. The solution was found in the transfer of fat cells by injection, from the body itself. Fat processing techniques have evolved rapidly in recent years, making this technique one of the most efficient, safest and popular ways to restore volume and contour to the face. The fat is obtained under local anesthesia through conventional liposuction, which is an added benefit.
The disadvantage of the face lipofilling method is that not all fat cells survive this process and a slight loss of volume (around 60% of it) is observed in the first 6 weeks before it stabilizes. Because of this, a second procedure is sometimes necessary. The fat cells that survive the procedure give a long-lasting result.

The surgeon will inject the fat into your face obtaining a 100% natural appearance, this makes it different from other techniques that can make a procedure like this more noticeable. Although it is safe to use synthetic fillers for facial cosmetic procedures, many people are more comfortable using their own body fat as a 100% natural alternative.
Unlike temporary dermal fillers that are reabsorbed by the body, fat transfers are not permanent, however, they have a long-lasting effect result.
Stem cells and their benefits. The fat that is extracted from your own body contains revitalizing stem cells. Stem cells can transform into different types of cells in the body, replacing and repairing the surrounding cells. These stem cells are responsible for rejuvenating the face and in this way effective and long-lasting results are obtained.
The fat grafting process has a dual benefit because fat is removed by liposuction or a similar procedure from the harvest site and then used to restore volume where it has been lost due to aging.
