BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - May 14, 2014) - "Anyone who is starting to show signs of aging in the face can be considered a candidate for fat injections," writes Boston plastic surgeon Leonard B. Miller, MD in a recent blog post titled, Are Fat Injections Right for Me? "In fact," he continues, "fat injections are probably the best, most effective treatment patients can receive if they are compulsively interested in maintaining a youthful facial aesthetic, as they provide much longer-lasting results than other injectable alternatives."
At the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation, Dr. Miller's private practice, the Boston plastic surgeon has been using fat injections for over 30 years to address sagging skin, lines, wrinkles, and a variety of other age-related issues that appear on the face. Some of the most common areas in which he administers fat injections include:
- Cheeks, lips, and chin
- Area surrounding the eyes
- Forehead and brow
- Jawline and neck
Fat used for injections is generally harvested from the hips, abdomen, thighs, and/or buttocks, depending on the area of the body with ample accumulation. Once injected into the targeted region, Dr. Miller says fat not only expands and volumizes the skin, but stem cells and other stimulatory growth factors contained within the fat help to restore collagen and skin thickness. He notes the innovative treatment's ability to restore volume and lift to the face is unprecedented.
According to Benefits of Fat Injections -- another recent post on Dr. Miller's website -- fat injections offer patients a number of other distinct advantages in relation to other facial rejuvenation alternatives. Four key benefits highlighted and expanded upon in the post include: the procedure is natural and non-allergenic; fat injections can be performed with relatively minimal discomfort; the results achieved tend to be long-lasting; and the effects of fat injections can often enhance and/or complement other treatments.
To conclude the former of the two blog entries, Dr. Miller professes, "Fat injections really are the treatment of the future."
