We all know that facial wrinkles and creases are part of the aging process. They begin to appear as the underlying collagen and elastin fibers break down and wear out. While this breakdown is part of the natural aging process, it can also result from excessive squinting, frowning and smiling.
Fat transfer, also called fat grafting or fat injections, is a simple concept: Dr. Magassy removes fat from areas in the body where it is abundant, and places it in the areas where it is needed. Fat transfer is a safe, natural, non-allergenic procedure designed to re-contour. It can fill the lines in your face and can provide definition to your cheeks and chin. The advantages are natural looking results, long-term enhancement, quick recovery period and no scarring. Fat is abundant, is easily molded, has a natural feel and look, can be permanent and does not cause any allergic reactions.
The use of fat transfer is a very important cosmetic tool for Dr. Magassy because he can use the technique to rejuvenate the face or augment the body. Fat grafting to the body has been most popular in gluteal (buttock) augmentation. This procedure is commonly known as the Brazilian Butt Lift. This is a safe and effective way to improve the aesthetic contour of the buttock region.
