Facial fat transfer is an advanced procedure to restore or enhance facial volume. The transferred fat cells become integrated into your natural tissues for the long term, with the added benefit of triggering natural skin regeneration.
Natural fat can be injected to enhance or restore various facial areas as an alternative to synthetic dermal fillers. The areas of your face that can be enhanced with this state-of-the-art procedure include:
- Deep tear troughs
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
Treat Facial Aging the Natural Way: Facial Fat Transfer Treatments
The facial fat beneath your skin gives it the plump contours of youth. With time, the fat diminishes and can leave your face appearing far less youthful. Facial fat grafting is the natural alternative to dermal fillers, with long-lasting results. This custom procedure can be used to rejuvenate or enhance your facial structure by adding natural fat volume.
What is the Procedure Like?
You will gain an added benefit with this procedure, as excess fat will be harvested from a body area that has an excess, such as love handles, abdomen, or thighs. Once the fat is harvested, with a gentle liposuction system to protect the viability of the fat cells, it is purified and placed within a syringe and meticulously injected to create natural facial volume. The beauty of the results will reflect the skills of your plastic surgeon, and you can be confident when under the care of Dr. Banerji, a master of this advanced aesthetic art. The treatment will not be painful, as you will be under mild sedation and the area numbed with a local anesthetic.
Harvesting Fat Cells for Transfer
Harvesting fat cells involves the use of a specialized cannula (a thin, hollow needle). The cannula is placed into the donor area, whether abdomen, flanks, buttocks, or thighs. The fat cells are then carefully extracted with the most gentle liposuction method to ensure fewer cells are damaged and remain intact and healthy for transfer. The cells are then purified and injected into the facial area you want enhanced. The fat cells work as a natural filler, smoothing away creases and lines and restoring facial areas that have age-related volume loss.
Enhance Your Look with a Custom Facial Fat Transfer Treatment
The gradual loss of facial volume eventually leads to fine lines, wrinkles, and creases. The skin becomes looser, begins to sag, and areas that were once plump and firm may now appear gaunt and sunken. Facial fat transfer is a groundbreaking way to naturally restore volume and the soft, round facial contours associated with youth and good health.
Recovery Time What to Expect?
You will have two areas that are sensitive following your procedure: the donor site and the injection site. It is normal to experience bruising, and these areas may feel tender and sore. The healing time varies from person to person but is typically between seven to ten days before returning to work or important social activities. The swelling gradually fades, and your rejuvenated look becomes evident – full, plump, and healthy in the most natural way.
