Fat Grafting — Volume Loss Houston Injectable
These days, there are quite a few non-surgical options to choose from to help preserve our youth. With age comes the unwanted appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. One of the primary culprits for these common signs of aging is facial volume loss. At our Houston-based facilities, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Ciaravino offers a solution to volume loss with an injectable treatment called fat grafting.
Fat grafting is a process by which unwanted fat cells are harvested from one area of the body, purified and then re-injected into the regions of the face where volume loss has occurred. When injecting the fat, the area is usually overfilled because some of the cells will not survive and will instead be reabsorbed into the body.
This type of procedure is considered minimally invasive. For more extensive facial rejuvenation, patients should consider surgical options.
