What is Fat Grafting?

When it comes to getting youthful volume back in your face, it may feel like you have one of two options: get a facial filler, or opt for a facial implant.

But as it turns out, there’s a third option – one that produces exciting results, and even comes with a bonus benefit of minor body contouring.

That’s right: we are talking about fat grafting.

Grab a cup of coffee and settle in, because we’re about to tell you everything you need to know about fat grafting and its exciting benefits. We’ll also discuss what results you can expect to see from your facial fat grafting procedure.

What is Fat Grafting?

Fat grafting is an innovative cosmetic procedure that uses your body’s own fat to augment key facial areas that may have lost volume over time as a result of:

  • Aging
  • Weight loss
  • Hormonal changes
  • And more

During a fat grafting procedure, your plastic surgeon removes a specific amount of fat from a donor area of your body (usually the abdomen, thighs, or another area with high-density fat tissue). This fat is cleansed and placed into a special injector tool, which is used to directly inject the fat in the desired treatment areas.

Fat grafting is an excellent choice for candidates who want to treat the following cosmetic issues:

  • Dark under eye hollows
  • Sagging skin
  • Hollow cheeks
  • Facial folds
  • Moderate wrinkles
  • And more

Fat grafting can help create a more youthful appearance that doesn’t look fake or frozen.

Best of all, because you’re using your own fat tissue for the procedure, there’s absolutely no risk for rejection or an allergic reaction (which can occasionally occur with dermal fillers or a synthetic facial implant).

When Will I See Results from Facial Fat Grafting?

You’ll see results from the procedure right away, as the fat produces noticeable lift and improvement.

However, fat tissue can take some time to settle into its final position, which is why we tell our fat grafting patients to wait for final results about six months after the initial procedure.
