Face Lift & Facial Fat Grafting
Face lifting techniques are designed to correct the aging changes of the skin and deep structures of the face and neck that occur over time. The sagging tissues of the neck, jowl, and cheek are areas that most patients want corrected as they age. A facelift (which includes a neck lift) is the procedure most appropriate for correcting these sagging tissues.
During a facelift, an incision is made around the ear and placed in the hairline. This provides access to the skin and deep structures of the face and neck which are elevated, supported and tightened. Facial fat lost during aging is restored through the transfer of small quantities of fat harvested from the abdomen or thighs. Fat is restored to the cheeks, upper and lower eyelids, brow, lips, chin and jaw line.
The combination of facial volume restoration by fat grafting with more traditional skin and deep tissue tightening yields a very natural un- operated appearing result and represents a significant advance in facial rejuvenation. The goal is for patients to look ‘well’ and healthy after the healing is completed. Pigmentation changes in the facial skin, fine and coarse wrinkles and heavy pores can be addressed by laser resurfacing at the conclusion of the facelift procedure.
Whatever type of facelift procedure you opt for, Dr. Namnoum will ensure that your results are subtle and natural.
Facial Fat Grafting
Fat grafting of the face can be accomplished through the transfer of small quantities of fat from abdomen or thighs to the facial tissues. This procedure is a powerful tool to correct the loss of facial fat that occurs during aging in the temporal region, brow, upper and lower eyelids, cheeks, jawline, upper and lower lips, and chin. The fat is completely natural and long lasting as opposed to synthetic fillers. Facial fat grafting creates a very youthful, rested, and healthy appearance that no man-made filler can duplicate. It is impossible to overstate the value it provides. As an added benefit, the procedure can be performed under local anesthesia.
