Facial Fat Grafting and CO2 Resurfacing
Facial Fat grafting is one of the top cosmetic procedures performed in Miami and other parts of Florida. Dr. Jhonny Salomon can perform the best facial fat grafting procedure along with CO2 resurfacing to give you the youthful look you desire.
How Does Fat Grafting Work?
As we age, we begin to see facial changes. Not only do you lose natural elasticity, but your skin may also suffer due to loss of volume. Today it is possible to replace your natural fat loss, with fat grafting to the face. Both men and women choose facial fat grafting to combat loss of volume and fine lines and wrinkles. Fat grafting has become a popular option because it is especially good at restoring the volume and fullness that you lose in your face with the aging process. The doctor will begin with the removal of fatty deposits from different areas of your body. Some of the more popular places to remove fat include your:
The natural fat found in your body is a better choice than other fillers because it can last for much longer. Those deposits also have cells with natural adipocytes that rejuvenate your skin and reduce the signs of aging.
CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
In addition to fat grafting, Dr. Salomon offers laser skin resurfacing to restore the youthful and rejuvenated look of your skin. Also known as a CO2 laser treatment, it is a simple procedure that restores your skin to its optimum ability. It treats skin damage caused by aging, exposure to the sun, and pollutants in the air and removes damaged skin cells. Some of the areas where resurfacing can help include the:
This procedure can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles all over your face. It can minimize sun damage and improves skin texture and will even your skin tone. It also stimulates collagen for a firmer more youthful skin. Your skin will look and feel tighter, making you look younger, and your skin feel smoother and refreshed.
How Long Does It Take?
Many patients want to know how long the procedures will take as well as how long they need to wait before seeing their results. Dr. Salomon can perform both fat grafting and CO2 resurfacing in the same appointment in about 90 minutes. You can expect to have some swelling and minimal pain right after the procedure, but those symptoms should go away quickly. Full recovery can take between 1-2 weeks.
When Can You Go Back to Work?
When you choose both the CO2 laser resurfacing and the fat grating, the doctor will usually recommend that you take a minimum 5 days off work. This gives your skin time to heal and ensures that the redness and swelling subsides. If you opt with the fat grafting alone, your down time is virtually none. You may have some swelling right after but that will be resolved in a few days. You should stop smoking for a minimum of two weeks before the procedure and stop taking medications such as ibuprofen, aspirin, and even vitamin E as this can lead to prolonged clotting.
Who is a Good Candidate?
The best candidates for this procedure include those who are in good health and who do not have any condition that might affect the healing process. Also, patients who are realistic about the procedure and the results they will obtain.
