In the past few years, more and more patients have been opting for non-surgical procedures to help them maintain a younger appearance. Microfat injections can decrease wrinkles, fill in unwanted creases, and augment lips and cheekbones. It's a simple procedure with minimal downtime and quick recovery.
As you get older, you may notice the skin on your face starting to wrinkle and lose elasticity. That's because you're losing the fat deposits under your skin and those deposits are what fill out your face, and make you appear younger. A microfat injection can restore the volume you need, and give you a more youthful appearance.
Because you're being injected with your own tissue, and not a foreign substance like a filler, your body easily accepts the fat. With microfat injection, results are more predictable and last longer than other injectables.
The fat is withdrawn from elsewhere on your body with a syringe and a fine cannula (a very thin tube) and re-injected into select areas in your face using a small needle. Dr. Kasrai will overfill the area somewhat because your body will reabsorb some of the injected fat.
Microfat injections are done on an outpatient basis, under local anaesthesia, at the surgical facility in St. Joseph's Health Centre in Toronto, Ontario, where Dr. Kasrai is the Chief of Plastic Surgery.
Toronto microfat injections will most likely be able to get back to normal activities within a few days. You may experience swelling, redness or bruising in the injected areas and in the areas where the fat was taken from.
Avoid sun exposure for a few days after the procedure. You can use makeup with sunblock to cover up any bruising.
All surgery carries some uncertainty and risk. However, having a qualified microfat injections / fat transfer Toronto specialist such as Dr. Kasrai perform the procedure ensures that complications are rare. You can reduce your risks by following Dr. Kasrai's instructions, and by not smoking.
