Natural fat injections can also be used to "plump up" certain areas of the face, including the nose and areas around it to alter the contours, the upper lip, jawline, and the temples. Many of these areas may only require a single treatment in order to achieve noticeable and long-term results. There are, however, other areas that might require Dr. Sonny O to perform more than one treatment in order to achieve the desired results.
Natural Fat Transfer or Dermal Fillers
One of the most important reasons why natural fat transfer is preferable to the use of other dermal fillers is that the use of the person's own fat does not introduce any type of foreign substance into the person's body. This can be particularly important to those who suffer from any form of allergy or sensitivity to dermal fillers such as Hylaform® or collagen.
Another consideration when choosing natural fat transfer for facial rejuvenation is the length of time the patient can expect the improvements to last. In most cases, the effects produced using natural fat can be expected to last for anywhere from a few months to two full years. On the other hand, most dermal fillers will begin to break down rather quickly and may disappear within a few months. This can lead to the need for multiple treatments in order to maintain the desired results.
A Simple Process
Natural fat transfer is a relatively simple process that is completed in three steps. First Dr. Sonny O will remove fat from a donor location in the person's body. The fat will then be placed in a centrifuge where it is spun at high speeds to separate the fat cells from the carrier liquid. Whole, undamaged fat cells are collected so that they can then be reinjected back into the chosen sites on the person's face to remove wrinkles and improve contour and shaping.

In order to become a plastic surgeon, the doctor must have undergone extensive additional training and residencies in the field of cosmetic surgery, including facial anatomy. The big difference is that while a doctor specializing in facial surgery concentrates all of his training in this area of the body, a general plastic surgeon receives training in all other areas of the body, including body, breast, hand, genital, and others.
Facial plastic surgery in considered by the American Medical Association as its own sub-specialty. At the same time, here is America we have become a nation who considers those who specialize in individual fields to be better than those who don't. However, when you are searching for the right plastic surgeon for your facial plastic surgeon, as much as you might think a specialist is your best choice, your eyes are a far better judge.
Let Your Eyes Do Their Job
Your eyes are the best tool you have when it comes to finding the right plastic surgeon. This is the perfect time to let each of the plastic surgeons impress you with the quality of their work. Any plastic surgeon worth his or her salt should have a portfolio of their work. Take the time to carefully browse through the photos so that you can see former clients both before and after their surgery. This is a good way to see the quality of their work.
Listen to how the plastic surgeon talks about himself and his work, does he or she have a positive attitude? Does he or she seem to put a lot of emphasis in describing his work without seeming to brag? There is nothing wrong with speaking well of your work as long as you are not boasting, a good plastic surgeon should appear to be confident and pleased with his or her work, not constantly sounding as if they think they are better than everyone else.

Reducing or Removing the Stretch Marks
One of the most common methods people use to reduce the appearance of stretch marks is to use a wide variety of creams and lotions. While this method might be the most affordable, if you were to ask the average person how successful these products are, you would find that in most cases they simply don't work.
Dr. Sonny O uses a relatively new technology called IPL or Intense Pulsed Light as a stretch mark treatment with an amazing amount of success. This is a completely non-invasive procedure that uses carefully targeted pulses of intense light to treat the broken and dilated blood vessels that cause stretch marks. IPL treatment can be safely used without the risk of damaging surrounding healthy tissues.
Using IPL to treat stretchmarks offers slow improvement over the course of time. It typically takes four to six treatments for Dr. O to achieve maximum results with each treatment taking approximately 20 minutes to complete. These treatments are typically spaced out at intervals of approximately three weeks. The good news is that by spacing the IPL treatments out in this way, Dr. O will be able to gradually improve the looks of the person's skin and be able to provide them with long lasting results. The number and length of the treatments will vary based on the extent and severity of the person's stretch marks, along with their location.
