(Kate Gosselin gets a fat transfer to her face, not a facelift!)
Did you know that fat cells contain some of the highest concentration of growth factors, growth factors and hormones in the body?
No one wants extra fat cells, however, fat cells, typically from the stomach or legs can be transferred to the face for a younger looking appearance. Fat adds volume to the face, filling in contours and hollows that help the face look younger. In addition, fat can add a younger glow to the face by its relatively higher concentration in growth factors and hormonal effects.
Fat contains estrogen. When you see a male with large amounts of fat, he will often have some more feminized characteristics as a result in part to the hormonal content. Fat can be like a hormone transplant to the face. Fat transfers are a great way to restore a refreshed appearance in a quick and painless way, under local anesthesia and with minimal downtime.
Some of the many benefits of fat transfer include minimal pain or discomfort, short recovery time, minimal risk, the ability to treat all skin types, long-lasting results, cost-efficiency (especially in combination with other procedures), and the elimination of the risk of allergy or rejection.
