Fat injections in Colombia

Defined facial features, visible contours and natural angles that are proportionate all create structural balance in your face and a more attractive appearance.

The appearance of your face is determined by three basic components: skin, soft tissues and underlying facial bones.  Healthy skin with good elasticity provides a beautiful package.  The volume and position of facial fat determines facial proportions, balance, and harmony.  Underlying bony structure defines visible determinants of beauty such as the cheekbones, chin, and jawline. 

Facial wrinkles and creases are part of the aging process.  Fat transfer, also lipoaugmentation or micro-lipoinjection, plumps up facial features with a patient's own fat and is a popular alternative to smooth out wrinkles and enhance facial appearance.  Fat transfer to the face is a safe, natural, non-allergenic procedure designed to recontour your face and provide definition to your cheeks and chin. It can also be used to correct facial deformities.  With fat transfer in Colombia, the doctor can liposuction fat from your stomach, hips, or thighs and transfer a portion of it to another area to add volume and smooth contours.  This is commonly performed for lip augmentation, filling of the nasolabial folds, and augmentation of facial tissues.

Fat grafting is a natural approach to restoring a youthful look to the face that does not involve removal of skin, stretching the skin, or the risk of an unnatural looks that can result from a facelift.  Fat grafting can be combined with a facelift, if that is what you need.
