Facial fat grafting overview
What is Facial Fat Grafting
As we age, our skin naturally stops producing collagen. This often results in hollow, sagging cheeks, sunken eyes, and smaller lips. Facial fat grafting uses excess fat from other parts of the body to restore volume to the face.
By removing fat from one area of the body and transferring it to the face, there's minimal risk of your body rejecting the transfer. The result is fuller, more dramatic face contours with a youthful appearance.
Fat transfer happens using liposuction to remove the appropriate amount of fat cells from another area of the body. These fat cells are then moved to the face using an injection.
Types of Facial Fat Grafting
There are many places on the body to harvest fat cells to use for facial filler. Many people opt for areas where they feel they have too much fat, such as the stomach or thighs. This fat can then be injected into the cheeks, lips, or forehead to address visible signs of aging. During your initial consultation with Dr. Troell, we will determine exactly where and how to transfer fat based on your unique bone structure.Book a free consultation

Am I a Good Candidate For Facial Fat Grafting?
There are many places on the body to harvest fat cells to use for facial filler. Many people opt for areas where they feel they have too much fat, such as the stomach or thighs. This fat can then be injected into the cheeks, lips, or forehead to address visible signs of aging. During your initial consultation with Dr. Troell, we will determine exactly where and how to transfer fat based on your unique bone structure.
Benefits of Facial Fat Grafting
There are many benefits to getting a facial fat transfer. Here are some of the reasons why this procedure is so effective for correcting signs of aging.
Fat injections will minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles on your face while increasing the contours in your cheeks, lips, or forehead. This gives your face a smoother texture and will help you appear more youthful.
Autologous fat transfer is usually a semi-permanent procedure. Once the fat cells have been transferred to your face, they will settle there, so touch-ups are rarely required. This makes it a good alternative to injectable facial rejuvenation treatments, which need to be touched up regularly.
When compared with facial plastic surgery, fat grafting is not particularly invasive. There are no large incisions or scarring, and you'll be able to return to your regular routine in just a few days.
If you're concerned about signs of aging in your face, a fat transfer can help you feel more confident. Many patients find that the youthful glow from this treatment helps them feel happier and more content with their appearance.
Expectations on the Day of Your Fat Transfer
Your fat transfer will start with liposuction from a fatty area of your body, such as your thighs. You will receive local anesthesia to make this procedure more comfortable. Your plastic surgeon will harvest more fat than necessary because some fat cells will die during the transfer. Then, we will purify the fat and carefully inject it into the target areas of your face.
This procedure usually takes less than two hours to complete. You will be able to return home directly afterward. In most cases, patients will be able to drive themselves home.
Fat Transfer Recovery - What to Expect After
You will experience some bruising and swelling at the liposuction site. You may also experience some pain, which can be treated with over-the-counter painkillers. These symptoms will subside after about three days.
You will also experience swelling and discomfort around your facial injections. You will need to wear a compression bandage to ensure the fat settles properly. Most patients take a few days away from work as a result. You should also avoid vigorous activity during this initial healing period.

Most procedures are done with local anesthesia, which means that you can drive yourself home right afterward. If your fat transfer is done under general anesthesia, you will need someone else to drive you home.
Since some fat cells will die during the transfer, you may need multiple appointments to achieve your desired look. However, the results are long-lasting once the fat has settled.
You shouldn't feel much pain during the procedure itself. Afterward, you may feel some pain at the liposuction site, but this will dissipate in just a few days.
This procedure uses a very small amount of fat, so it isn't a solution for weight loss.
