Young faces are often characterized by their smoothness and fullness. However, over time, we begin to lose volume in our faces, which contributes to aging features like sagging or wrinkling skin and hollowness in the cheeks. Volume enhancement surgery at Midwest Facial Plastic Surgery refreshes our facial appearance by harvesting fat from other areas in the body to sculpt and reshape the face.
These types of fat transfer procedures correct aging facial features by filling hollowed areas, sculpting the cheeks, adding volume to the eyelids, reducing dark circles under the eyes, and even enhancing the fullness of the lips. Our patients frequently combine the restorative effects of volume enhancement with other procedures, such as eyelid lifts, brow lifts, or facelifts, for a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Most patients typically recover within one to two weeks after the procedure if post-surgery instructions are followed.
