An International Conference Reveals Global Facial Rejuvenation Innovations, Including Micro Fat Grafting

Vancouver, British Columbia (PRWEB) June 05, 2015

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Owen Reid attended a facial rejuvenation conference in late March in Belgium to work with world-class facial surgeons on the latest advances in aesthetic surgeries and services. Trained in face, breast, and body surgery, he nevertheless has frequently chosen to treat facial rejuvenation non-surgically at his practice. When it comes to getting youthful effects similar to a facelift, Vancouver patients could choose from a variety of injectables that offer non-invasive, though temporary solutions.

Always seeking to stay up with the latest advances, Dr. Reid returned from the conference armed with innovative ideas on everything from short-scar facelifts to chemical peels to micro fat grafting.

Considering that many patients are now seeking facial rejuvenation, but are hoping for something less invasive than an extensive facelift, the micro fat grafting technique is proving to be one that is generating interest in both doctors and patients.

In the short time since the conference, Dr. Reid has embraced micro fat grafting in Vancouver by adding new instruments to his practice and immediately using the techniques covered at the event, which welcomed 47 plastic surgeons hailing from 28 different countries.

Dr. Reid’s aim is to further enhance micro fat grafting’s effectiveness in treating hollow eyelids, nasolabial folds, and upper lip lines. These happen in areas particularly susceptible to volume loss—a natural occurrence that comes along with aging—that can lead to sunken areas on the face and sagging skin that many people feel adds to an older, flabbier appearance, as well as a frequent or permanent negative expression. A facelift has long been a procedure of choice for men and women seeking to tighten their skin, but it carries with it the standard risks of surgery, as well as the associated recovery time.

As a facial rejuvenation alternative, micro fat grafting involves using liposuction to remove a small amount of fat from a donor site, such as the abdomen. The fat is then processed and ultimately injected into the area targeted for treatment via a small cannula.

Since this is the patient’s own fat, the results can be more natural looking and longer lasting than other less-invasive options. The effects can be boosted even further by combining micro fat grafting with another procedure, such as a chemical peel, which restores a youthful shine to the skin by removing the dulled and weathered outermost layer.
