Nowadays, there are many procedures that refresh the fullness and contours of your face; however, autologous fat transfer to the face is rising in popularity since it provides natural-looking improvements and long-lasting benefits for the skin.

What is Facial Fat Grafting?

Lost volume, frequently caused by aging, is usually most prominent in the areas around the eyes, cheeks, and jawline. Autologous fat transfer to the face may be used to diminish some of the more typical signs of aging, and it increases volume by smoothing fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on your face using your transferred fatty tissue.

By liposuctioning extra fat from areas of your body, the purified fat can be carefully placed into the desired sections of your face for beautiful, long-lasting results. With autologous fat transfer to the face, you don’t just see a refreshed facial appearance, you smooth the curves of your body.

Ideal Candidates

Facial fat grafting may improve wrinkles, such as laugh lines, smile lines, and Crow’s feet. Transferred fat may also minimize the visibility of pitted areas and scars. You can even enhance your cheeks and lips for a rejuvenated appearance. With results similar to an injectable wrinkle filler, such as Restylane or Juvéderm, a facial fat transfer is a great treatment if you’d like longer-lasting results. In order to be a candidate for a fat transfer, you need to have enough extra fat to fulfill your goals.

Surgical Technique

Facial fat grafting is a two-step process that includes liposuction and injection.

Because only a minimal amount of fat is required, we usually use twilight or local anesthesia. To start, we will use liposuction to extract fat, which may be taken from your abdomen, hips, or flanks. As soon as the fat is removed, it will be processed and then placed in syringes. We use different injections angles and techniques to provide ideal immersion rates into your skin, as well as to create symmetry. According to your plan, fat will be transferred to your lips, cheeks, and/or beneath your eyes to create volume, as well as to correct lines, wrinkles, and facial depressions.
