Autologous Fat Grafting

As we develop through life, natural bone remodelling along with shrinkage and shifting of the facial fat compartments can lead to signs of facial ageing, such as:

  • Hollowing of the facial contours
  • Flattening of the cheek projections
  • Lines appearing around the eyes and lips
  • Lowering or sagging of the brows
  • Deepening of the nasolabial folds between the nose and mouth corner
  • Development of jowls

Loss of fat volume as we age can also affect the backs of the hands, giving a skeletal look. Restoring the fat volume to the face and hands can bring back youthful and more aesthetically pleasing contours.
