Facial fat transfer is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a patient’s fat, harvested from the abdomen, hips, or buttocks and injects them into the sections on their face that give off a hollowed-out appearance or other problem areas. This procedure offers some of the most natural-looking and longer-lasting results for reversing facial volume loss.
Facial rejuvenation doesn’t always have to involve surgery to achieve an individual’s goals. When your face has lost a bit of its plumpness throughout the years, fat grafting would be an ideal choice for any potential candidate. Used in tandem with face lift or eyelid surgery, for example, this fat transfer helps add volume to the areas around the eyes, cheeks, and mouth, providing not only a younger, refreshed look, but also ensures your facelift results last longer.
During an initial facial fat transfer consultation, we will discuss the benefits of this procedure and how it relates to your volume loss reversal goals. In addition, we will provide an overview of what to expect during and after your injections, including how to care for the target area of skin post-treatment.
* Each patient is unique and individual results may vary.
Facial fat transfer is an outpatient procedure that usually requires only local anesthetic or IV sedation, and there are no dressings or drains. The procedure, all in all, takes around two to three hours to complete, depending on the severity of a patient’s case and how many areas are to be treated.
Downtime is relatively easy and wouldn’t require much time off from work, though we recommend a week to let some of the side-effects post-treatment wear off. We recommend our patients avoid any sort of strenuous or physical activity that may knock the injected sites off-balance, such as gym visits and exercise. There may be some redness or swelling as a side-effect, as with any injectable treatment, but this occurrence is temporary and can be covered up with light make-up for appearance purposes.
