As we age, our faces can start to look different from the appearance we're used to in a relatively short period. This is because sagging, wrinkled skin and facial volume loss can cause our faces to begin showing our actual age, keeping us from looking as youthful and vibrant as we've always felt. If you're experiencing this, the Vertical Restore® procedure and fat transfer is a comprehensive and highly customizable option to help.
Pairing Vertical Restore With Fat Transfer
Without exception, every individual experiences facial fat loss as they age. This fat is a crucial component in maintaining a youthful, healthy, and vibrant appearance, and its gradual decline becomes noticeable around our mid-thirties and continues to progress with each passing year. This loss pattern is consistent for everyone, regardless of body weight, and results in a face that appears more worn, tired, and aged.
Fat transfer refers to removing excess fat from one body area, such as the stomach or thighs, and injecting the purified fat cells into the face to restore volume. While this procedure can be performed independently, it can also be incorporated as part of the comprehensive Vertical Restore procedure.
The fat transfer procedure effectively blends the transition between the eyelid and cheek, resulting in a soft and gentle contour that promotes a healthier and more youthful appearance. Our facial fat transfer technique is highly successful because it is the most natural way to replace lost facial fat. One of the oldest principles in plastic surgery is to "replace like with like." You achieve the most natural rejuvenation by using your body's fat to restore lost volume. Additionally, fat cells containing abundant stem cells are linked to long-term rejuvenation effects, including improved skin clarity, texture, tone, and even a reduction in pore size.
