About Facial Fat Grafting

Nowadays, there are plenty of procedures that refresh the youthful 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. Lost volume, frequently caused by aging, is usually most noticeable in the areas around the jawline, cheeks, and eyes. Autologous fat transfer to the face may be used to reduce 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, aesthetic plastic surgeon Dr. Andrea Basile can carefully place the purified fat to the desired sections of your face for beautiful, long-lasting results. With an autologous fat transfer to the face, you don't just see a refreshed facial appearance, you smooth the curves of your body.

Ideal Candidates

You are potentially a good patient for facial fat grafting if you desire a more refreshed and brighter facial profile by increasing fullness to particular areas on your face. This often consists of those that are noticing the results of aging or individuals who have experienced serious weight loss. It is additionally a promising alternative if you have an aversion, allergy, or intolerance to common dermal fillers. This cosmetic treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that usually does not leave facial scars; individuals have very light scarring from the fat extraction while also receiving an exciting and natural final product. Optimal results occur in individuals who have retained a considerable amount of elasticity in the skin but wish to attain smoothness and repair volume.

Procedure Technique

Facial fat transfer is a two-step process that is initiated by the liposuction of certain body parts. In most situations, fat is suctioned from the flanks, hips, or abdomen, and only minor amounts of fat are typically needed. The relocated fat is refined to a more organic form so that Dr. Basile can inject them into locations on the face where volume is requested. This is usually an individual's mid-face or cheek area but can include the lips. Dr. Basile employs different injection angles and techniques to provide ideal immersion rates into your skin as well as to create symmetry.

What to Expect

Depending upon the location where the fat is to be removed, you can expect to be offered local and/or general anesthesia. It's typically a simple outpatient surgery that can be completed in one visit or can be performed simultaneously with other cosmetic surgeries, including brow lift, neck lift, facelift, or eyelid surgery. If you are simply undergoing facial fat grafting, then the healing period should be one week or less with beautiful results noticed in two days. This quick recovery makes the surgery an outstanding selection for an effective, beautiful outcome.
