Treating Volume Loss in the Face- Fat Grafting and Voluma
- Posted on: Mar 29 2017
Facial aging usually presents itself with volume loss in certain areas of the face. Areas such as the cheeks and the under eye area are the typical concerns patients voice to us. At Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Roberto Garcia specializes in accurately diagnosing the correct treatment options for these specific areas. Our goal is to make the face appear natural by adding volume in the areas that are aging the face most dramatically.
The use of fat grafting can provide long lasting results. In the right hands, volume augmentation can be a valuable component in making the face look younger. Fat grafting has a lot of advantages; it is very cost effective and longer lasting than a synthetic Hyaluronic Acid filler such as Juvederm Voluma XC (Voluma). Fat grafting is highly technique dependent therefore, it is important that patients find a surgeon with significant experience with this procedure.
For hollowness in the midface, the use of fat grafting is very effective in replacing volume. Natural, long lasting results can certainly be achieved.
Voluma is an excellent choice for volume augmentation in the cheeks as well. Lasting up to 2 years, Voluma instantly provides patients with plumper cheeks and rejuvenates the mid face beautifully.
It is advisable to seek the opinion of a double board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon for an evaluation to determine which procedure is best for you. It is also helpful to review the surgeon’s before and after photo gallery for more information.
