A Look Inside
Main Description
This book/DVD set is a thoroughly illustrated "how-to" guide to facial fat transfer, a new facial rejuvenation procedure that allows the surgeon to sculpt the face and restore it to its natural beauty. Fat is harvested from fattier areas of the body through a suction technique and injected into the face with a small cannula. The fat transferred becomes incorporated as living tissue and the results are extremely long lasting. The book guides readers through this procedure with easy-to-follow instructions and more than 200 full-color step-by-step illustrations. Two DVDs accompanying the book contain videos demonstrating the procedure and pitfalls.
Title Summary
"Traditional procedures like blepharoplasty, when performed alone, can serve to hollow the frame around the eye further and may, in fact, exacerbate the appearance of aging. This book will elaborate on a proposed new aesthetic model (framing the eye, restoration of a heart-shaped face, and the importance of highlights and shadows) and explain how the surgeon can use fat grafting as a complement to rather than a replacement for a standard facelift, blepharoplasty, and other surgical procedures. It also provides an easy blueprint for those interested in performing facial fat grafting as a stand-alone procedure."--BOOK JACKET.
