Fat Transfers Can Help Tampa Bay, FL, Patients Maintain a Youthful Appearance
Fat transfers performed by Tampa Bay, FL-area cosmetic surgeon, Dr. John Roach, can help patients minimize the signs of aging and maintain a more youthful appearance. Dr. Roach is well-known throughout the Tampa community for his holistic approach to patient care. During an initial consultation, he will discuss your perceptions and goals, answer your questions, and recommend a customized treatment plan to achieve the most natural-looking results possible, while at the same time revitalizing your overall sense of well-being.
Although good nutrition and exercise remain the two best ways to enhance your appearance, genetics and the inevitable aging process can unfortunately serve to counteract the positive effects of a healthy lifestyle. Depending on your unique needs and goals, fat transfers may help:
- Reduce facial wrinkles
- Smooth out skin
- Enhance lips
- Restore volume to other areas of the body affected by the aging process
Fat transfers use the patient’s own fat cells, which are biocompatible and thus reduce the risk of rejection or allergic reaction. Through a liposuction procedure, fat is withdrawn from a pre-determined area of the body with sufficient fat deposits for the graft. After being purified and concentrated, the harvested fat cells are injected into the desired site. Within a few days, capillaries will reach and supply blood to the newly transferred fat cells, of which up to 60 percent may die. For this reason, fat transfers sometimes require more than one treatment to achieve the desired result.
