A lot of the common aesthetic concerns that people have with the appearance of their face can be the result of a loss of facial volume. Noticeable facial folds, drooping cheeks, and diminished facial contours. Thankfully, there are ways to restore lost facial volume and rejuvenate the youthful beauty of the face. Fat grafting is an amazing facial rejuvenation procedure that uses the patient’s own natural fat to restore lost facial volume to various areas of the face. 

What Is Facial Fat Grafting?

Facial fat grafting is a facial rejuvenation procedure that restores lost facial volume by injecting purified fat into different areas of the face. The fat is harvested using liposuction from an area of the person’s body that has excess fat. Areas of the body where fat is typically harvested include the thighs, abdomen, and flanks. The fat is then processed and purified so that it can be safely injected into the desired areas of the face. 

Facial fat grafting can be used on multiple areas of the face including the cheeks, temples, jawline, lips, and brow. Facial fat grafting can both subtly lift the treated areas of the face and soften the appearance of folds and wrinkles to give the face a smoother and more youthful appearance. Facial fat transfer can also be used to correct asymmetry in different areas of the face. Facial fat grafting can also be combined with other procedures like a facelift in order to provide more comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
