Facial Fat Transfer

Facial Fat Transfer: Facial fat transfer is a cosmetic surgery procedure that uses your own fat to add volume and fullness to areas of the face that have lost volume due to aging or weight loss. Fat is liposuctioned (suctioned out) from an area like the abdomen or thighs, processed, and then injected into targeted areas of the face, like the cheeks, lips, or temples.

Natural-looking results: Uses your own tissue, minimizing risk of allergic reaction.
Long-lasting results: Transferred fat can survive for years.
Can improve skin quality: Fat contains stem cells that may promote collagen production.

Requires two surgical procedures: Liposuction and fat injection.
Possibility of fat reabsorption: Not all transferred fat survives.
Potential for temporary side effects: Swelling, bruising, and discomfort.

Alternatives: Dermal fillers, implants.

Recovery Time: 1-2 weeks, with swelling and bruising gradually subsiding.

Disclaimer: Facial fat transfer is a surgical procedure with risks. Discuss your options and concerns with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
