Facial rejuvenation is a set of aesthetic/cosmetic treatments, which intends to restore a youthful appearance and this may be achieved by either surgical and/or non-surgical means.
While the surgical procedures restore facial symmetry through specialized procedures along with facial restructuring and alterations, the non-surgical ones target specific depths of facial structures and treat localized facial concerns such as wrinkles, laxity, hyperpigmentation and scars.
Surgical (invasive) facial rejuvenation procedures can include a brow lift (forehead lift), eye lift (blepharoplasty), facelift (rhytidectomy), chin lift and neck lift. Non-surgical (non-invasive) facial rejuvenation treatments can include chemical peels, neuromodulator (such as botox), dermal fillers, laser resurfacing, photo-rejuvenation, radiofrequency and Ultrasound.
Facial rejuvenation procedures can include (but are not limited to):
Nano Fat and Fat transfer are procedures which have been refined by Dr. Sydney Coleman. The fat is harvested using a small cannula attached to a syringe and is then either left to settle or placed in a centrifuge to spin off both the oil layer at the top and the debris at the bottom of the column of fat. The central purified fat is then re-injected to achieve not only fullness to the tired and sagging , but also injects a fresh lease of life into these tissues.
This procedure is frequently used as an adjunct to many other facial procedures, most notably a facelift. It is also used in conjunction with other non-surgical and cream based tightening and glowing programs, especially it is frequently placed into the perioral region to affect this facial rejuvenation.
Even though a facelift may soften the depth of the nasolabial folds and the marionette lines, these areas remain after a facelift. Fat injections can be safely performed at the same time as a facelift and this will produce a shallowing of these of the nasolabial folds and marionette lines and will be a useful adjunct to a facelift.
Fat can also be placed into the lip and philtral columns as well as to the malar (cheek) regions. It is also a procedure that can be performed as a stand-alone procedure in patients who are concerned regarding these specific areas due to aging or weight loss.
