As people age, their skin loses the natural elasticity and luster that it once had, resulting in wrinkles, furrows, hollows, and age lines. Many individuals wish to eliminate these outward signs of aging. At Genesis Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa, Dr. Fredrick Thompson, M.D. understands our patients’ needs and desires. Through the fat grafting BOTOX® procedure at our Kansas City practice, Dr. Thompson is able to guide our patients towards the youthful appearance they desire.
The Fat Grafting BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedure
The fat grafting BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure at our Kansas City practice is used primarily for facial rejuvenation. Many of our patients wish to rejuvenate their facial skin while maintaining their natural beauty. Thanks to the fat grafting BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure, patients can refine the appearance of their faces without the need for more invasive treatments. The initial fat grafting procedure restores fullness to the face, and the subsequent BOTOX® injection smoothes the wrinkles.
The fat grafting BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure, like fat grafting breast augmentation, is really two procedures in one. As with other fat grafting procedures, fat grafting BOTOX® Cosmetic begins with a procedure very similar to liposuction, in which excess, unwanted fat is removed from the patient’s abdomen, buttocks, jowls, or thighs. Once the fat has been removed, the fat cells are isolated and cleansed using a centrifuge. The newly cleansed fat cells are then put into syringes for injection into the patient. Once the syringes are ready, Dr. Thompson injects the patient’s fat cells into sunken areas of their face and lips, adding volume and creating more aesthetically pleasing contours.
Once the fat grafting is complete, the BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure can begin. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is far less invasive and time consuming than the initial fat grafting. The entire BOTOX® procedure is completed in about ten minutes through several small injections. The BOTOX® Cosmetic injections work by relaxing the facial muscles that contract to cause wrinkles and fine lines. The results of the injections will last for several months, whereas the fat grafting results will last significantly longer.
