Volume loss, skin laxity, soft tissue descent, folds, and depressions are all common signs of aging that can affect multiple parts of the face. If you would like to rejuvenate your face as naturally as possible, you may benefit from facial fat grafting.

Using a patient’s own fat to restore volume to the areas of the face that have suffered effects of aging can often provide a more long-term rejuvenation than synthetic fillers.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kelly Bolden is skilled in the art of facial fat grafting and can help women and men regain a youthful and refreshed appearance.

Continue reading to learn how facial fat grafting works and if it’s right for you.

What Is Facial Fat Grafting?

Facial fat grafting is a minimally-invasive plastic surgery procedure that transfers fat from one part of the body to the face in order to correct sagging, hollowness, lines, and wrinkles.

This process involves a donor site, from which fat is extracted or harvested, and a treatment site, which receives the purified fat.

Popular donor sites include the abdomen, hips, and thighs. Common treatment sites include the forehead, temples, tear trough, frown lines between eyebrows, cheeks, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines.

Who Is a Good Candidate for this Facial Rejuvenation Technique?

Facial fat grafting is an excellent option for women and men who wish to rejuvenate their faces with the most natural filler available.

It’s also ideal for patients who struggle with wrinkles, skin laxity, or scarring, but are concerned about hypersensitivity to other injectable products.

It’s also important that candidates for this procedure are in good health, are non-smokers or are willing to stop smoking before and after treatment, and have realistic expectations.

How Is Facial Fat Grafting Performed?

Facial fat grafting can be performed with local anesthesia and oral or IV sedation. Dr. Bolden will extract a few ounces of fat from a predetermined donor site and then prepare the fat in order to separate stem-cell-rich fat from other fluid.

The concentrated fat cells are then placed in a syringe and precisely injected into areas of concern with a micro-cannula. Fat cells must be positioned in close proximity to a blood supply to increase their chance of survival.

In the coming weeks, stem-cells will grow and naturally integrate with tissue.

What Can Patients Expect After Facial Fat Grafting?

Recovery from facial fat grafting typically takes one week, mostly due to minor associated bruising.

Patients should carefully follow Dr. Bolden’s post-care instructions, including avoiding pressure on the treatment area and forgoing strenuous activities for a couple of weeks.

Unlike with synthetic fillers, patients can enjoy a naturally smoother, fuller, and youthful appearance for up to three years.
