Imagine the Possibilities
What changes with aging
The changes that occur with aging are a loss of volume, gravity changes, loss of skin elasticity, and the formation of wrinkles. The purpose of fat injection is to restore the loss of volume.
The right volume in the right spot
Fat injection is a procedure that involves harvesting fat with a small tube (called a cannula) from the abdomen or flanks, and injecting it to the face. It is vital to have a surgeon with an artistic eye for proper placement of the fat to produce optimal results.
Though this procedure is now gaining popularity, Dr. Shahar has been performing the procedure for the past 10 years. Having done thousands of fat injections, Dr. Shahar has the experience and expertise to obtain optimal results.
Lasts for years!
As filler, the fat injection can last for years in certain areas of the face and body. A fat injection can correct disproportion of facial features to bring balance and harmony to your face. It can enhance your cheeks, eliminate depression of your lower eyelid and nasolabial folds (deep folds that run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth), or eradicate the pre-jowl depression. It is the preferred method of choice since your own fat is being used. Compared to other injectables with temporary results, this procedure provides long lasting results.
Fat injection is highly effective. Some patients may find it more effective than a face lift. Most of the time, fat injection is performed together with a facelift. The procedure is done under local anesthesia, and you can return to work the next day.
There are numerous alternative filler substances used today as well. These include Restylane, Perlane and Radiesse. Each one of them has advantages and disadvantages.
