What is Facial Fat Grafting?

Facial fat grafting, also known as micro fat transplantation, is a minimally invasive injection procedure that revitalizes the face by transferring fat from the patient’s own fat cells in other areas of the body. This process helps fill in wrinkles and depressions on the face and can also address hollows around the eyes, temples, and cheeks.

Your plastic surgeon will choose a “donor area”, typically the abdomen or buttocks, to extract the fat from. He or she will use a small needle to harvest the fat. The fat graft is prepared by centrifugation and separation of the fat cells and the stem cells from the blood serum and local anesthesia. The grafted fat is ready to be transferred once it has redeveloped a blood supply. About 50% of the injected fat will survive. The injection usually only takes a few moments per site and depending on the number of areas treated, the whole process could take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. The injection will not be painless and your plastic surgeon will use a cold instrument or administer local anesthesia to ease the pain.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Facial Fat Grafting?

Individuals who are in good health and have reasonable expectations about what can be achieved with this procedure. Patients who undergo fat grafting in the face can be any age.

Younger patients tend to use fat grafting as a means for plumping an area that can benefit from volume. Older patients tend to use fat grafting to restore areas that have lost fat due to the aging process.
