About Facial Fat Grafting

We offer a variety of treatments that can refresh the beauty and contours of your face. Autologous fat transfer is a popular treatment because it offers natural-looking improvements and long-lasting benefits for the complexion. Often caused by aging, volume loss can happen around the eyes, cheeks, and jawline. Facial fat grafting can help combat the signs of aging, like volume loss. By taking unwanted fat from your body, facial fat grafting treatments add volume to help smooth facial wrinkles and folds. Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang is a skilled cosmetic surgeon who can artfully inject the fat into different parts of your face for beautiful, lasting results.

Is Facial Fat Grafting For You?

Facial fat transfer is a great option if you want to add natural-looking volume to certain parts of your face. This treatment helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, laugh lines, smile lines, scars, and Crow's feet. Patients can also enhance the volume in their cheeks and lips with facial fat transfer. Similar to the results of a dermal filler, facial fat transfer is an excellent option if you want longer-lasting results. To be a good candidate for facial fat grafting, you should have enough fat to transfer to the face.

Surgical Technique

Fat transfer is a two-part process that includes liposuction and fat injections. Because only a small amount of fat is needed, Dr. Mang uses twilight or local anesthesia. To start, we utilize liposuction to extract unwanted fat from your hips, flanks, or abdomen. As soon as the fat is removed, we place it in a centrifuge for processing. This purifies the fat and allows us to inject it into the face. As Dr. Mang starts to place your injections, he uses various techniques and injection angles to create smoothness. Based on your treatment plan, we will inject fat into your lips, cheeks, or below your eyes to add volume and to improve the appearance of wrinkles, folds, scars, or fine lines.

What to Expect

After your fat graft, we will suture your incisions and take you to the recovery area. Dr. Mang or someone from his team will apply bandages and monitor you in the recovery room. Before sending you home, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions and schedule follow-up appointments. The follow-up appointments allow Dr. Mang to assess your recovery and ensure you are healing properly. Your recovery period will depend on the amount of fat that we transferred, and you should plan for 1 – 2 weeks of rest and recovery. At first, patients may feel sore and experience bruising and swelling near the treatment sites. You might notice some improvements right away; however, it will take several weeks before you can see your final outcomes. A small amount of fat will likely reabsorb, but with proper care, your improvements can last for several years.

Fat transfer is a wonderful way to add volume, smooth wrinkles, and accentuate your gorgeous face.
