- About Us
As we age, our face loses some of its 3-dimensional volume, which can result in a deflated appearance, which affects our temples, brows, eyes, nose, cheeks, jawline, and mouth area. A loss of facial fat causes drooping and sagging along with noticeable wrinkles and skin folds. While aging is a natural part of life, there is a safe, natural remedy to avoid looking old. Discover the age defying benefits of a facial fat transfer procedure at Hogue Clinics by artist-surgeon, Dr. Roger Hogue.
While there are many procedures available to turn back the hands of time, fat grafting is perhaps the most natural remedy. Unlike synthetic fillers and injectables, a fat graft is a living tissue that offers years, if not permanent results. Fat is harvested from surplus areas on your body to restore, volumize, and regenerate depleted areas of fat in skin and tissues that have been lost during the aging process.
Keep reading to learn more about a fat grafting procedure and how it can be used to create a more youthful look for your face, hands, and body.
With advances in cosmetic surgery and the fat grafting renaissance, there are multiple effective approaches to sculpt, volumize, and restore one’s youth. There are many benefits and advantages for choosing fat grafting as the ideal procedure for addressing your cosmetic skin and tissue aging concerns.
One of the major benefits of fat grafting is the natural approach inherent with the procedure. Fat is a naturally occurring substance abundant in all of us. Fat tissue is comprised of numerous regenerative cell populations, including adipose-derived stem cells. Fat is an insulator, a cushion, and a regenerator of skin and tissue.
While there are synthetic fillers that have been made to imitate the natural look and feel of fat tissue, doesn’t it make more sense to just use fat, the real thing?
With fat grafting, your cosmetic surgeon skillfully injects healthy viable fat clusters, optimally-sized for the graft recipient area, to sculpt your face, breasts, dorsum of hands, or other body areas. There is no comparable substitute for an autologous fat graft.
Unlike synthetic fillers or injectables which simply minimize the appearance of volume loss, an autologous fat grafting procedure seeks to correct the primary underlying issue which is fat atrophy, volume loss, and degeneration of skin and tissue.
After undergoing a fat grafting procedure, you can expect long-lasting results that preserve your youthful look for many years to come.
We all have pockets of surplus fat that we wish we could transfer to somewhere else on our body. That possibility is a reality today!
Fat can be harvested from numerous body area including:
Once removed, the harvested fat clusters can be washed, sized, concentrated, then transferred by artful injection into the face, hands, breasts, and other areas. Because of the nature of fat grafting, the process offers dual benefits, allowing you to remove pesky fat from a place of excess, while grafting and reusing it elsewhere to restore volume and provide skin and tissue regeneration.
