When you get to a certain age, facial wrinkles start to show and can become a problem. The first facial aging signs can be seen around the lips and eyes. To alleviate those signs, more and more people choose a cosmetic surgery with Dr.Bouzguenda called facial fat grafting.

Fat grafting

Fat transfer is a procedure that harvests fat that accumulates in the thighs, the stomach or the loves handles with liposuction to transfer it in the lips, the chin or the cheeks in order to bring volume and smooth down wrinkles. Facial fat grafting is an alternative treatment to facelift in Tunisia, the goal of the procedure is to restore the natural roundness and curvature of the face. The main benefit of fat transfer is that it leaves no visible trace. After the fat has been processed, it is re-injected with syringes. The injected fat sits close to vital tissues with blood supply, which allows fat cells to survive. Fat injections are made in hollowed or sagging areas of the face. The difference with dermal fillers is that once it has settled in the treatment area, the volume increase is permanent. It is worth noting that part of the fat transferred doesn’t survive (20% to 30% on average) and is naturally reabsorbed by the body after surgery.

Non-invasive treatment

The LED facial treatment is one of the most used techniques to alleviate wrinkles, it is another excellent alternative to facelift surgery. Light therapy stimulates skin cells and triggers different skin rejuvenating processes. For instance, the fibroblasts are encouraged to produce more collagen whereas the production of collagen degrading enzymes is diminished. The LED therapy also boosts the renewal of skin cells, which allows the skin to regenerate faster and improves skin tone. Studies have shown that cells exposed to LED light therapy regenerate 150 to 200% faster than the cells that are not.
