Facial Fat Grafting

Fat grafting removes unwanted fat from one area of the body and transfers it to an area that will benefit from added fullness. This technique is most often used to add volume to the cheeks, eyelids, lips, nasolabial folds.

This is a permanent change.

What is Facial Fat Grafting Surgery Like?

In order to obtain the fat to be transferred, your plastic surgeon will perform liposuction, taking excess fat from your abdomen, hips and thighs, then prepared and injected into the face to fill in hollows, deep lines, and sagging.

We perform fat injections under ultrasound guidance.  The allows us to see exactly where the fat is placed.  It not only allows for better results, but it is much safer.  The surgeon can see where the fat is placed.  He can see the muscle and safely avoid it.
