FAT TRANSFER

Over time, skin tends to lose some of its elasticity on areas of the face and body. During this time fat volume can also be lost. This results in volume loss, striations, creases, and depressed areas that can make the individual appear tired or drawn. It is also common for lips to lose their volume and appear thinner as we age.

Fat transfer, also known as “Autologous Fat Transplantation” or “Micro–Lipoinjection” can be used to correct many of these areas, as well as to improve acne scarring. During the procedure, fat is harvested from one part of the body such as the abdomen, and injected into the areas that have lost volume, such as the temples, cheeks, or lips. Fat transfer is the preferred method of volume restoration in patients hesitant about using prepared fillers and products such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse.

Welcome to the Nuance Facial Plastics Blog!

nuance facial plastics blog

Welcome!

The Nuance Facial Plastics Blog is here to give you the most honest, up to date information from us to you, in our “sponsored by nobody” style.  Our discussions will include topics that interest our readers, with a focus on facial plastic surgery.  We will use this space to answer frequently asked questions and also discuss current trends, new products, and emergent technologies.  Information is widely available on the internet, but good information that is not marketing material in disguise is hard to find, and often times constitutes a majority of what patients read as their “research”.  The Nuance Facial Plastics Blog differs, as we are an independent practice that has no exclusive deals with any vendors, companies, or other entities that would influence the quality and honesty of the information we provide you.

Our First Series

One of the most common discussions that we have with patients are about the differences between products that we offer, as there is some overlap.  The single most common question we get asked is, “what is the difference between Botox and Dysport?”.  Our first three-part series will explore the differences between the three neuromodulators currently available in the USA, Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin.  Several topics, such as differences in the strength, longevity, or “spread” between the products will be discussed.  Despite being broken into a three-part series, there is quite a lot of information, as the information from these posts are rooted in science, and the claims are supported by multiple articles published in high quality, peer-reviewed medical literature.
