Preventing And Correcting Facial Fat Loss

Fat loss is part of the aging process, and it can't be stopped entirely. The best way to prevent excessive fat loss in your face is by maintaining a healthy, steady weight. However, genetics also play a part in this process.

If you already have areas that have become devoid of fat and have taken on a hollow and concave look, fat can be added back. Known as fat grafting, micro-fat grafting or autologous fat transfer, this procedure first involves harvesting fat from one part of the body (like the buttocks, hips or thighs), before it's process and reinjected into the needed areas to add back volume and shape.

Not only does fat transfer provide low-risk, long-term results (up to 70% of the transferred fat remains permanently), many doctors also favorite it for the natural look it gives.
