printFAMI

Has your face become thin, gaunt? Facial muscle shrinkage is a natural part of the aging process. Even if you're eating right and exercising, your face may appear thin, due to muscular change. Occasionally, in extreme examples, the face may become skull-like.

Traditional Face Lift Alternative: FAMI

FAMI can provide actual facial rejuvenation rather than a mere stop-gap treatment. Your features can be augmented in the mouth, chin, jaw, cheeks, even forehead to restore the full-faced, youthful look.

This plastic surgery alternative is an outpatient procedure that involves removal of tissue from the lower part of your body by liposuction and then refining and injecting the tissue into your facial muscles. The resultant rejuvenation is both natural and long-lasting. FAMI does not introduce a foreign toxic substance into your body as is the case in botox injections.

How is FAMI different from botox?

"Botox" is an abbreviation for Botulism Toxin. That's right: poison. Botox injections introduce small amounts of poison into your body. Why would anyone prefer a bacterial venom injection over an infusion of your own body's natural products?

Botox injections block nerve impulses to the treated facial muscles. This paralysis is the desired effect, but, over time, this can lead to atrophy of the affected muscles. This will cause your face to look older faster.
