Facial Fat Transfer/ Fat Grafting

Facial Fat Transfer Treatment

Aging can have adverse effects on the volume of your face. The aging process causes the bone of your upper and lower jaw to resorb, the facial fat pads to lessen in size, and the skin to thin in thickness. Your face begins to develop features, such as frown lines, smile lines, marionette lines, eye bags, skin texture changes and wrinkles. We all desire to look our best, that is the reason one applies makeup, polishes one’s nails, styles our hair, and chooses wonderful looking clothing. One goal is to restore our youthful appearance. Everyone loves a beautiful, radiant look, right?

Fortunately, you can now restore your youthful appearance using a natural technique, using your own fat harvested from your body called facial fat transfer. This treatment involves removing fat cells from other parts of your body (most likely the abdomen or flanks), processing the fat by purifying and cleansing, adding growth factors (Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP) and then transferring the cells to the areas of facial volume loss through a microcannula injection.

It is true that people have reservations when it comes to cosmetic surgery, particularly regarding safety and success rates. Since we are using your body’s own tissue, it is extremely safe. Nevertheless, the fuss surrounding cosmetic surgery is often replete with misconceptions. You have little worries when seeking a face fat transfer procedure. Facial fat grafting is not only safe, but it’s also highly effective and permanent. About two-thirds by volume of that is injected, remains long-term. About 15% is salt water and about 20% of fat dies and is absorbed, this is the one-third that does not last permanently. Fat can be stored long-term for later use to revise any persistent volume deficiency. The fat is stored using liquid nitrogen and an anti-freeze substance to protect the fat and stem cells during this process. Your fat is stored in a government approved laboratory, American Cryostem.

Benefits of the Facial Fat Transfer Procedure

The benefits of facial grafting are numerous and include the following:

  • Helps restore facial volume for a more youthful appearance.
  • Improves wrinkles and tightens the skin for a more radiant look.
  • May make skin appear smoother.
  • Augments or enhances any flat area, such as the cheek or chin.
  • PERMANENT Outcome of facial volume replacement.


How It Works

The face fat transfer treatment seeks to restore facial volume. Alternative treatments which provide permanent facial volume replacement include the use of facial silastic implants of a permanent dermal filler known as Bellafill. Whichever your choice, each of these procedures play a great role in restoring a youthful facial appearance.

To restore your facial volume, a doctor will harvest fat cells from either your abdomen or hips. Interestingly, only a small amount of fat is necessary (35-100 cc) to achieve impressive results. Before injecting the treatment areas, the doctor will purify the harvested cells. The fat is then injected into the facial contours using a micro-droplet technique. Because grafted fat has a high blood supply, the healing process is faster, stable and more natural.

A facial fat transfer procedure is as safe as it is minimally invasive. The doctor does not have to make any incisions to transfer fat cells, only a 1 mm skin punch. It is also minimally discomforting. The procedure is performed with oral sedation, local anesthesia and may include facial nerve blocks.

Who Qualifies for Facial Fat Transfer Treatment?

Candidates who might require facial grafting are typically adults who would like to do away with the effects of aging. It is very rare to find teenagers undergoing facial fat transfer treatment unless they’re seeking reconstructive surgery. If you notice any wrinkles, frown lines or any facial volume loss, you should consider consulting a cosmetic surgeon.
