What is Facial Fat Grafting?
There are several options for procedures that refresh the fullness and contours of your face; however, autologous fat transfer to the face is rising in popularity because it provides natural outcomes and lasting benefits. Lost volume, frequently caused by aging, is usually most noticeable around the jawline, cheeks, and eyes. Facial fat grafting may be used to reduce some of the most common signs of aging, and it rebuilds plumpness by smoothing facial wrinkles and folds throughout your face using your transferred fat. By removing extra fat from areas of your body, Dr. Elias can carefully reinject it into the desired parts of your face for beautiful, lasting results. With fat grafting to the face, you not only see a younger facial appearance, but you also smooth your body. To learn more about fat grafting to the face, contact The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery in Pasadena, CA to arrange a consultation with Dr. Elias.
What is the Procedure for Facial Fat Grafting?
A facial fat transfer can improve wrinkles, like Crow's feet, laugh lines, and smile lines. Grafted fat can also reduce the visibility of acne scars and sunken areas of your face. You can also add volume to your lips and cheeks for a rejuvenated appearance and long-lasting results. Candidates for a fat transfer should have enough extra fat to fulfill their goals.
Fat transfer is a process that includes liposuction and fat placement. Since only a small amount of fat is removed and grafted, Dr. Elias usually uses twilight or local anesthesia. To start, Dr. Elias will use liposuction to remove fat, which will probably come from your flanks, hips, or abdomen. When the fat is removed, it will be purified and placed in syringes. Dr. Elias will use different techniques and injection angles. Based on your plan, fat may be grafted to your cheeks, lips, and/or below your eyes to create volume, as well as to fill in lines, wrinkles, and facial pits.
Following your fat graft, your incisions will be closed before you are sent to recovery. Dr. Elias will apply dressings and monitor you until you can be sent home. Before your surgery, Dr. Elias will tell you what to expect after the procedure and the recovery time. Follow-up appointments will need to be scheduled at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery so Dr. Elias can evaluate your recovery progress. Your recovery will vary based on the amount of fat that was taken and grafted, but you should plan to take 1 – 2 weeks to rest and recover. You may feel uncomfortable with swelling and bruising in the area(s) that received liposuction and the transfer site(s). You may see a little improvement right away in your face; however, it is going to take several weeks until you will see your final outcomes. A small amount of fat might be reabsorbed by your body, but with good maintenance, your improvements can last for many years.
