What is facial fat transfer?

The practice of fat grafting has greatly elevated the outcomes we can accomplish at Florida Plastic Surgery Group. This minimally invasive technique, used in facial rejuvenation and breast enhancement, restores lost facial volume and harnesses your body’s resources for a soft, natural, long-lasting enhancement. Autologous fat grafting involves meticulously extracting fat via liposuction from your abdomen, hips, thighs, or buttocks. 

This procedure serves the primary purpose and offers the bonus benefit of sculpting the donor area, a feature our patients appreciate. The fat grafting technique has considerably improved the outcomes our plastic surgeons at Florida Plastic Surgery Group perform in various procedures.

How is facial fat transfer performed?

The first step of a facial fat transfer procedure is liposuction. This process involves carefully harvesting fat from a donor area on the patient’s body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, or buttocks. The fat is then delicately processed to remove everything except your own body’s fat cells.

Afterward, the concentrated fat is injected with small needles, eliminating the need for any incision. Some overcorrection may be required, as not all fat injected will survive. In addition, a second or third stage of fat grafting may be required.

Facial rejuvenation with natural fat transfer

As we age, our facial soft tissues deflate and descend, creating a hollow appearance around the eyes and cheeks. By restoring volume to these areas, autologous fat grafting can recreate a full and youthful appearance. Fat grafting facial rejuvenation is performed by injecting your body’s own fat into the cheeks, wrinkles around the mouth, and any sagging areas around your jaw to give you a natural and refreshed look without any incisions. The recovery time is much shorter than many other facial rejuvenation techniques.

Fat grafting can also be used to help fill in and soften wrinkles around the neck, cheeks, forehead, and face. Fat has been especially useful in blunting the nasolabial fold (line around the check) and furrows around the brow.

Contour irregularities after liposuction

Occasionally, after body contouring procedures and liposuction, patients may develop contour irregularities. These contour irregularities can be corrected with the injection of fat without the need for incisions. Some overcorrection is required, as not all of the fat injected survives, and a second or third stage of fat grafting may be needed depending upon individual circumstances.

Fat grafting breast reconstruction

Fat grafting has significantly enhanced our ability to create a more natural look and feel for reconstructed breasts. Fat grafting fills the hollows above the breast to create a fuller, softer, and more natural appearance to the superior pole of reconstructed breasts. In addition, fat grafting can also fill the voids in the middle to create more cleavage and medial fullness.
