South Coast Specialty is staying on the leading edge with the latest techniques that are producing cosmetic procedures for patients of all ages. With the advent of new fillers there are excellent procedures available to correct deep furrows and wrinkles on the face. Depressions on other areas of the body can also be corrected through a procedure called autologous (meaning from the same individual) fat transplantation. This procedure can help contour the face, lift the cheeks and chin, and correct facial or body deformities.
Fat is removed from elsewhere on the body and then re-injected into the recipient site. This can be done under local anesthesia or IV sedation (twilight sleep). The process is repeated until the desired amount of fat has been transferred and the defect is corrected.
With this procedure, problems of rejection or allergic reactions are not factors, because the fat is transplanted within the same body.
Recovery time is very short and patients are usually up and around the day of surgery. The only downside of fat grafting is that some of the fat may dissolve and the patient may need additional fat grafting procedures to achieve the desired contour.
Fat grafting is a way of restoring lost volume and proportion in the face through minimal incisions and minimal scars with a fairly quick recovery.
