Facial Fat transfer, also known as “facial fat grafting,” is a cosmetic procedure that adds facial volume using fat from your own body. This procedure can have a rejuvenating effect on the:
- the area around the nostrils
- nasolabial folds
- under eye bags and eye hollows
- chin and jawline
Fat Transfer to Face Techniques
Fat grafting is a technique used to treat certain parts of the face that appear deflated. Treatment involves a 2-part process: the collection of the fat, and its injection into facial areas in need of volume restoration.
First, fat cells are harvested from another region of the body using liposuction. After the collected fat is purified and cleansed, it is meticulously injected into facial depressions to create youthful volume. Once treatment is complete, you can enjoy more youthful facial contours and smoother skin where creases once existed.
Recovering From Fat Transfer to Face Surgery
There are minimal restrictions after fat grafting. You should avoid strenuous activity for a few days. You should expect to fully recover within four to six weeks after your procedure.
