Restoring facial volume
Facial volume loss, or fat tissue atrophy, is a process we all face over the years. As time passes, the skin becomes less elastic, collagen and elastic fibres are reduced, and due to gravity, the tissue sags.
There are two ways you can solve this in our polyclinic:
- Fat transfer (Micro Fat Grafting) is a procedure which uses liposuction to take fat from hips, thighs or stomach and then processes and transfers it into parts of face. This procedure helps the patient in two ways – body fat in critical areas is reduced, and the face restores youthful appearance. The effect of the procedure is to “turn back time” even up to 10 years. Transferred fat cells continue to live in the area where we transplanted them, and one part of fat cells during the procedure is damaged and resorbed. There might appear a small swelling after the procedure, and bruising in the place of injection, but the recovery is immediate.
- Hyaluronic acid is a natural ingredient in our body which provides skin volume and elasticity. Hyaluronic acid is gradually dissolved, and the effect of the treatment lasts 9-18 months depending on the face area that is treated.
