About Face Fat Transfer
Fat transfer to face is a cosmetic procedure that transfers fat from one part of the body to the face. The restored fat rejuvenates the face by filling areas that have drooped and minimizes wrinkles and even fine lines.
This fat grafting face procedure is an effective way to get rid of fat in one area and place it where it’s needed. Facial skin loses its elasticity much more quickly and dramatically than other body parts. Transferring fat to the face restores the chin and jawline, plump up sunken cheeks, and even restore the thin, sensitive skin under the eyes.
How to Prepare for Fat Transfer to Face?
Fat transfer to the face begins with liposuction on the area where fat will be harvested. Not much fat is needed for face fat transfer, so the process can be done with a local anesthetic. It is then injected into the face. It is not necessary to anesthetize the entire face.
What to Expect From Face Fat Transfer?
Although there will be some swelling at the injection sites on the face, the fat transfer effects are immediately visible. Most patients only need one face fat transfer for long-lasting results.
Some recovery time may be needed from liposuction. Most people can return to their normal activities in less than a week.
Fat Transfer to Face FAQs
Cons include the fact that the procedure is done in two parts (liposuction and injection); it takes longer to do than dermal filling; liposuction requires local anesthesia, and the procedure costs more than dermal filling.
