What Are Micro-Droplet Fat Injections?
Micro-Droplet Fat Injections involve using fat from another area of the body (such as the thighs or hips) and transferring and injecting it in the facial areas that exhibit sagging, creases, or wrinkles. Because the face loses volume over time, Micro-Droplet Fat Injections can also be used to correct depressions and fill in areas to smooth and tone the face.
Where Are Injections Administered?
Targeted areas can include the lower eyelid, the brow area, the inner and outer cheek, and the chin. The fat grafts that are used in the injections can either add volume to a face or, when artfully placed, slim a face as well.
What Does Recovery Entail?
Because Micro-Droplet Fat Injections do not require an incision, the downtime is minimal. Most patients can return to their normal activities in about ten days. While there is some residual swelling, any discomfort can be easily alleviated with an over-the-counter or prescribed medication. Recovery time is dependent on how much grafting was needed for the injections.
What Are the Benefits of Micro-Droplet Fat Injections?
Micro-Droplet Fat Injections provide a more permanent solution than other injectable fillers, although touch-ups may be needed. Besides smoothing wrinkles, injections can be used to highlight the bones of the cheeks, accentuate the jaw, and reduce the marionette lines that can frame the mouth.
