While the youthful face is full and round, an aging face tends to result in a thinner shape and increased skin laxity. This, in turn, causes the formation of fine lines and wrinkles that can also result in an aged appearance. With the help of our team at The Bougainvillea Clinique in Winter Park, FL, patients can achieve that more youthful appearance without having to use cosmetic injectables. Instead, Dr. Walt Sweeney is pleased to offer Lipostructure, a specialized treatment that works by allowing the doctor to harvest fat cells from other areas of the body, such as the flanks or abdomen, and utilize that fat where it is needed by reinjecting it into the facial area. Lipostructure, a type of fat grafting procedure, continues to be a popular anti-aging solution used by new and established patients at our facility.
How does Lipostructure work?
First, patients will consult with their doctor to determine if they are a viable candidate for this treatment. Once patients have been evaluated by Dr. Walt Sweeney and the process is explained, patients can undergo their treatment. A specialized method of removing the unwanted fat on the body harvests fat cells, which are then reinjected into the face to add contour, structure, and volume. Lipostructure works perfect for patients who need to improve the following areas:
- Nasolabial folds
- Crow’s feet
- Volume loss in temples
- Chin definition
Do I need separate appointments?
There are two ways in which we can help patients. The first option is same-day treatment, where the fat is both harvested and injected during the same appointment. Some patients might opt to have separate appointments, where the fat removed is frozen and reinjected in small amounts every week for a more gradual enhancement.
