Fat InjectionsFat Injections
Our face ages not only from laxity of the skin, but also due to loss of volume. This is most commonly seen in the drawn, pursed appearance around aging lips or the hollowness in aging cheeks. Filling out these areas with Fat Grafting or other facial fillers returns a youthful plumpness to the face and a healthier, more vigorous appearance.
Many fillers are available to diminish facial lines or add volume to specific facial features. One of these fillers is fat. In performing Fat Injections and Fat Grafting, Dr. Maxwell will harvest fat from the abdomen or hips and inject it into the desired facial area. The lips, mouth and cheeks are all popular areas for this procedure. Because the tissue used is all your own, allergic reactions are avoided.
Commercial fillers used at Maxwell Aesthetics Med Spa include: Juvederm®, Volbella®, Vollure, Voluma®, Radiesse® and Restylane®. These products are used strategically to add volume to the nasolabial folds (from the nose to the corner of the mouth), lips, cheeks and around the mouth. There is an art and a science to performing these injections and attaining a natural look. At Maxwell Aesthetics, highly trained Registered Nurses administer the injections, provide outstanding personalized care and leave you looking refreshed and rejuvenated.
