What is Facial Fat Transfer?

Facial Fat Grafting

Fat grafting is not a treatment for all aging, just the part that involves loss of volume. Volume loss is particularly more pronounced around the eyes, cheeks, and jawline, where fat transfer can play the greatest role in creating a balanced and comprehensive rejuvenation strategy for the face that may include blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery) and/or a facelift.

Fat grafting in our NJ Plastic Surgery Center involves removing fat from one’s own abdomen or thighs to put into certain regions of the face that start to lose fat. Only tiny amounts of fat are removed so this should not be equated with liposuction.

Using blunt cannulas (which are 1 mm hollow tubes with a blunt end and a small hole through which the fat comes out) the fat is injected as little droplets throughout the areas of facial hollowness. By using this microdroplet technique, transfered fat has a much higher blood supply so that survival is improved and the results are smoother given how small each individual fat parcel is.

Facial Fat Transfer, and Volume Restoration In Depth

Volume restoration for the face also adds more light to the face, which in turn can make the skin look more radiant. Adding fat back to the face can even begin to help the skin texture and tone through what is thought to be a stem-cell response that the skin undergoes over areas of transplanted fat. This phenomenon is only speculated and is not conclusive but can be evident towards a year following fat grafting performed by the best cosmetic surgeon in NJ & NYC.

Fat and Stem Cell Graft also appeals to many prospective patients, as it is minimally invasive and does not require any traditional facial incisions. With a global perspective on the aging process, fat transfer has assumed a more prominent role in our ability to combat the signs of aging.
