A youthful face is a common desire for men and women alike, and sometimes a little help in meeting this desire is needed. One cosmetic solution to keep a young, full looking face is transferring fat to the face. Also known as facial fat grafting, this procedure is an effective way to improve the loss of volume that occurs as we age.
Transferring fat to the face is a common form of plastic surgery and one that has proven to be highly successful. As you can see from this before and after gallery, the procedure can help by adding volume to the face that have begun to droop or sag over time, thus providing an overall healthier appearance. In the end, facial fat grafting is a great way to improve your natural beauty.

During your first consultation with Dr. Smith, you can discuss the various options available to you for your specific needs. Both men and women can benefit from a facial fat transfer, and can be performed on anyone between the ages of 18 and 65; older patients can have the procedure if they’re healthy, though you should be in good health regardless of your age.
Dr. Smith and his team will make sure all of your questions are answered and concerns are addressed so you are fully aware of everything the procedure entails.

The procedure is typically done under local anesthetic or IV sedation, and in some cases, facial fat grafting can be performed with other procedures, such as rhinoplasty (“nose job”), to achieve the desired look. During your consultation, Dr. Smith will help you determine the best type of anesthesia to use for your individual needs. Fat is first removed from a number of possible areas around the body, such as the abdomen or the thighs. Once removed, the fat is processed down to reduce it to its purest form. Then, using a very a fine needle, the fat is transferred into the necessary areas until the desired results are seen. Unlike some other types of plastic surgery, facial fat grafting leaves no scars, and the recovery time is minimal. For more information on recovery times, please click here.
