Fat Grafting Defined
Successfully performed, fat grafting is undetectable to the observer as it rejuvenates as well as slows the aging process. As one of the originators of fat grafting, beginning more than 25 years ago, Dr. Kornstein’s techniques increase the retention and functioning of the fat grafts as well as the restoration of one’s natural aesthetic.
“There is nothing currently available that comes close to the aesthetic and anti-aging benefits of fat grafting”
Living fat cells are the body’s most powerful stem cells; they are capable of rejuvenating age-related facial skeletal defects as well as the overlying skin. Grafting means the fat cells are transferred to their new location where they get a new blood supply and are subsequently energized, secreting growth factors. It is the fat cells derived support and growth factors that rejuvenate the skeletal and skin organ systems allowing them to properly and optimally function. A surgeon’s skill, experience, and aesthetic vision are of the utmost importance when fat grafting for total facial rejuvenation, from hairline to jawline. Fat grafting is a great enhancer to old hands, the stem cells rejuvenate the hands, giving them a natural look blending veins and tendons out of sight.
Fat cell grafting is long-lasting (and perhaps permanent with a healthy lifestyle) In comparison, fillers are temporary and do not share the genuine rejuvenate characteristics of one’s own fat-derived stem cells.
Facial fat grafting and Profound RF® are a powerful combination therapy.
