COMBINING THE MIDFACE-LIFT AND FAT TRANSFER

         As we age, the skin will become loose or the fat will begin to disappear, which this make us look older. There are various methods for this treatment, such as using nourishing cream, sunlight protection and using laser. One of treatments is to use the filler substance as a substitute in place of disappeared fat underneath.

        The best treatment is using the individual’s fat from other parts of the body to fill in where the fat underneath the facial skin is missing. Since the fat that will be injected is still has some parts of the stem cell, this can help the skin to retain the youngness and bright aura. By using natural fat from native body, this will allow the facial structure and skin to stay rejuvenated for much longer than any other filler substance (Pontius & Williams III, 2006). The research indicated that this treatment method can last up more than 8 years (Ersek et al., 1998) (depending on individual)

        The facial location where the fat usually disappear are underneath the eyes that causes the “eyes bags”, cheek, or jawline, which resulting in unclear jawline, older looking facial. Some people can appear around forehead, around the eyes, etc.

     In the past, injecting fat used to be was not popular or effective way to rejuvenate the aging skins due to its property of being dissolve back into the body after the treatment. But nowadays, the technologies allowed the preservation of transplanted fat cell to stay alive and remain in place as a body living tissue. Furthermore, this method of fat extraction and injection become much more suitable for patient who wants firm looking shape (e.g. tummy and upper leg) and put the undesirable fat into good use else (Coleman, American Society of Plastic Sugery,2006)

 

However, this method does have some side effects such as swelling, uneven bruise, post-surgery infection, occlusion of arteries, etc.

The good treatment is not only concern about the outside of the body, but also from the inside as well to make sure that the patient will received the best treatment possible.
