Fat and fillers injection

Autologous fat injection is widely used in surgeries, and fat is injected into a specific area of the body to enhance volume and give safe, long-lasting results and a natural appearance, as the missing fat in the area is compensated for by the body fat itself. The process of transferring fat to one area requires first obtaining the fat from another area of the body by suctioning it, then processing what was removed from the fat and injecting it again into the area to be enlarged.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ideal candidates for a fat transfer to face procedure who have started to notice a hollow or shallow appearance to individual or multiple areas of the face, or those who desire augmentation of features such as the lips, cheekbones, chin or jaw. There is no “perfect age” for fat grafting to the face, because age-related changes are determined by genetics, lifestyle, and many other factors.
Prior to your fat grafting to face procedure, we will identify which area(s) of your body will be used as a donor site. During the procedure, this site (or sites) will be injected with an anesthetic and a small incision will be made for access to harvest the fat. The appropriate amount of fat will then be gently suctioned out through this incision using a specialized cannula. Once the fat is removed, it is processed and prepared for transfer. Fat is typically processed using a centrifuge to separate the fat from fluids and oils that have been removed from the body. This ensures that only healthy, viable fat cells will be injected into the treatment areas and helps to promote fat viability.
Recovery from fat transfer usually isn’t overly burdensome, but you should expect to look puffy and a bit bruised for about one to two weeks.  You may also experience mild discomfort during the first week, appropriate pain medication will be prescribed to help reduce pain. The majority of swelling should disappear within a month, and bruising will subside in about 10-14 days.
Approximately 50-60 percent of transferred fat cells will survive after the procedure, so it’s common for facial fat grafting (and fat grafting in general) to be repeated in order to achieve ideal volume. However, it’s difficult to predict if a patient will need to undergo another treatment. Generally speaking, patients usually wait around three-to-six months after their first fat grafting to face procedure before deciding if an additional treatment is necessary.
The transferred fat cells that survive in the treatment area will generally stay there indefinitely. The fat will continue to age naturally with your body and it will behave just like other fat in the face. This means that it may still decrease in volume over time, but you can expect your results to last for many years to come. Significant weight fluctuations may affect your results, so it’s best to stay at a stable weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle for optimal results.
