Age is the most significant factor contributing to the overall change in the appearance of an individual's facial features over time. The purpose of any cosmetic procedure is to reverse the aging process that has occurred in an individual. During the last 5 years, volume restoration through lipotransfer combined with lifting procedures has been instrumental in elevating these procedures to a new level of excellence in comprehensive facial rejuvenation. The authors believe that restoration of facial volume can be achieved safely, precisely and reliably by lipotransfer. In this article they describe their techniques of lipotransfer.
