Am I a candidate for facial fat grafting?

Facial fat grafting is great for almost anyone wanting to add natural-looking volume to different parts of their face. A facial fat transfer helps fill in fine lines, wrinkles, Crow’s feet, frown lines, smile lines, and laugh lines. This transferred fat helps reduce the appearance of scars and can also improve how the cheeks and lips look. To be a candidate for a facial fat transfer at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Atlanta, GA, you must have enough excess fat to harvest for use during this treatment.

Where is fat transfer used on the face?

The most common places we perform a fat transfer to the face include:

1. Lips

2. Eyes

3. Cheeks

4. Crow’s feet

5. Wrinkles (laugh lines, smile lines, frown lines)

During your consultation, we can discuss your goals for the procedure to ensure that we can successfully execute your facial fat grafting procedure.

How is facial fat grafting performed?

Facial fat grafting first involves the harvesting of fat and finishes with the injection process. We use local anesthesia since fat is removed and grafted. First, Dr. Mang will perform liposuction to remove fat from different areas of the body, including the back, flanks, abdomen, or hips. After the fat is harvested, it is then processed and inserted into different areas of your face. We use different injection angles and techniques to offer the best immersion rate for your particular skin.

FAQs about facial fat grafting

  2. Does fat grafting last forever? Fat grafting isn’t permanent but can last a long time, depending on how well your body responds to the fat transfer. For some patients, your body will reabsorb the fat cells, which will require multiple treatments.
