Facial rejuvenation with fat grafting is a surgical procedure that reverses many of the most dramatic signs of facial aging, like wrinkles, volume loss, and hollowing. This minimally invasive procedure uses the patient’s own fat cells to create a refreshed, youthful appearance without synthetic fillers or surgical implants.
Is Facial Rejuvenation
right for you ?
Facial rejuvenation with fat grafting is an excellent option for patients seeking to refresh their face. Fat grafting offers results that last far longer than dermal fillers, as patients typically permanently enjoy their enhancements. This procedure provides the dual benefit of sculpting one area of the body by removing stubborn fat and augmenting the face with your own fat cells.
Long-lasting results without incisions or residual scarring
Sculpting of additional problem areas, such as the abdomen or thighs
Add volume to facial features that have become creased or sunken
Correct asymmetries of specific features or facial contours
Eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, particularly on the lower half of the face
Eliminate shallow scarring from acne, chicken pox, etc.
Eliminate early signs of jowl formation along the jawline
A patient care concierge will guide you through the entire consultation process, which can be attended in person or virtually. During the consultation, your surgeon will learn about your goals, answer any questions, and perform an examination to create a personalized surgical plan. You will then be matched with a surgical coordinator who will walk you through each step of the preoperative process.
Your surgeon will create tiny incisions to insert cannulas directly into the fat deposit to remove fat cells from the body. First, tumescent fluid is infused, loosening the cells to make them easier to remove, thus minimizing trauma on the tissue, which reduces discomfort and overall downtime post-surgery. Once the surgeon removes the fat, it is purified and prepared for grafting, which is performed similar to dermal fillers, injecting the fat at strategic points in the treatment area to create a smooth, natural result.
It is not unusual to experience some swelling and bruising around the incisions used for the fat removal process, as well as some mild swelling around the injection points on the face. Liposuction can leave you feeling a bit sore for a few days, but most patients are back to their regular schedules within a week.
Your surgeon will provide specific instructions for optimal post-operative care, including an advanced scar management protocol after the initial healing period. Your surgical team is always available and will closely monitor your recovery in the weeks and months following surgery.
