Why this procedure?
When the fat that is naturally positioned on our face begins to drain away, the normal signs of aging such as lines, wrinkles or the bags under our eyes, become more prominent. When this happens, not only do we look older, but our appearance may change as well and we might take on a tired or an angry look.
You see, our skin needs fat to look youthful and glowing. The problem is, as we grow older, it begins to go away and we may need a refill. The facial fat grafting procedure brings back the volume and healthy glow to your face and it does so without the need of a super invasive surgery: win-win situation. Restore the facial contouring you had when you were younger, today.
