What Is Facial Fat Transfer?

Facial fat transfer is a facial plastic surgery procedure that utilizes the patient’s body fat to fill or plump the facial area. It is a highly adaptable procedure and can be used in various facial areas such as under-eye, cheeks, and lips. What makes this procedure stand out for patients is that it relies only on your own body cells to provide improved facial contours.

The goal of facial fat transfer is to restore volume in the face, smooth out wrinkles, improve facial contour, and even add volume to facial features like the lips or cheeks. The facial fat transfer procedure is relatively simple, and when done correctly with an experienced facial plastic surgeon, can provide long-lasting results.

What Is the Procedure Like?

Facial fat transfer is a two-step process. First, Dr. Sohrab will use specialized liposuction to harvest fat cells from the patient’s body in an area that has excess fat, such as the abdomen or thighs. The facial fat transfer procedure involves harvesting your own natural facial fat and then transferring it into the facial area, such as under-eye or cheeks, where it is needed.

Once the facial fat cells have been harvested, they will be prepared for the fat transfer. This requires a special technique that separates the useful fat cells from surrounding tissue and debris. Then Dr. Sohrab will gently inject facial fat with a micro-cannula into the facial area to create volume and improve facial contours according to your goals.

Benefits of Facial Fat Transfer

Facial fat transfer is an effective facial plastic surgery procedure for facial rejuvenation, with quite a number of advantages. Below are some of the key benefits of the procedure:

  • It can accomplish facial contour improvements such as building facial volume, reducing wrinkles and lines, and adding more definition to facial features such as the lips or cheeks.
  • This procedure is also beneficial because it only utilizes naturally-derived material from the patient’s own body, avoiding the use of artificial materials.
  • The facial fat transfer procedure is also a less invasive facial plastic surgery, as it only involves minimal incisions at the donor site (usually in an area like the abdomen or thighs).
  • Facial fat transfer can provide natural and long-lasting results, with many patients reporting improvement up to two years after their procedure.
It is a pleasure with work with Dr. Sohrab. She is so talented and knowledgable and explains everything in great detail.

Am I a Candidate for Facial Fat Transfer?

Facial fat transfer is a facial plastic surgery that can be used for facial rejuvenation and contouring. As such, it may not be suitable for everyone and should be discussed in more detail with your facial plastic surgeon. Still, it is open to a wide range of patients who want to use natural cells to improve their facial contours. Generally speaking, those who are looking to improve facial volume or facial definition are likely to benefit from facial fat transfer. Also, an ideal candidate will have enough fat in a donor part of the body for use in the transfer process.

What Is the Recovery Process?

The facial fat transfer procedure is typically quite straightforward, and patients can typically return to their normal activities within a few days to about a week after the procedure. Patients should expect some bruising or swelling in the facial area where the facial fat transfer was performed, but these should resolve quickly with time.

When Can I See the Results?

The facial fat transfer procedure is a facial rejuvenation procedure that provides gradual, natural-looking results. Most patients will begin to see the effects of facial fat transfer in the weeks after their procedure, and these effects should continue to improve for up to two years following their facial plastic surgery.
