Cheeky face-lift boom

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE - ■ by FE­LIC­ITY CROSS

WOMEN are hav­ing “bum fat” pumped into their faces to make them look younger.

The pro­ce­dure has been rated one of this year’s top cos­metic surgery trends.

Har­vested fat cells pro­vide vol­ume on bony or very lined ar­eas of the face.

Plas­tic sur­geon Gary Ross ex­plained: “The fat can be taken from an area in the body and placed into the face to try to vo­lu­mise the ar­eas af­fected by age­ing.

“Fre­quently, pa­tients opt to have their fat in­jected on to the bony por­tions of the face – usu­ally the mid face. It can also be used for finer lines.”

Hair trans­plants also fea­ture among 2017’s top sur­gi­cal trends.

Trans­plants are of­ten be­ing sought by women who have ex­pe­ri­enced hair loss.

Ex­perts say that they can lose their locks be­cause of their overuse of hair ex­ten­sions.

The in­dus­try has seen a spike in the num­ber of women seek­ing help with hair loss, said aes­thetic sur­geon Dr Mu­nir Somji.

He said: “I have seen a surge due to hair ex­ten­sions but this still re­mains most pop­u­lar for men.”

Else­where, the fo­cus has been on hav­ing quick and con­ve­nient pro­ce­dures such as one-stitch face lifts, and us­ing lasers to zap saggy skin, pores and wrin­kles in as lit­tle as 20 min­utes.
