What are the benefits of a facial fat transfer?

natural facial fat filler and transferFacial fat transfer, commonly known as fat grafting, is a cosmetic technique that provides various advantages to people seeking facial rejuvenation. One of its primary benefits is the ability to provide natural-looking results because the technique uses the patient’s own fat tissue to restore lost volume, addressing issues such as sunken cheeks or hollow under eyes. Facial fat grafting has long-lasting effects, and some of the transferred fat frequently becomes permanent.

This minimally invasive technique uses liposuction to extract fat, providing the dual benefits of contouring the donor location and improving facial features. Facial fat transfer also minimizes the chance of allergic responses because the procedure uses the patient’s own cells, for more natural results. Furthermore, this cosmetic treatment promotes collagen production and improves skin quality. Overall, facial fat transfer is a highly successful and versatile method for creating natural-looking facial rejuvenation.

Who is a candidate for facial fat grafting?

Facial fat transfers involve a meticulous process known as fat grafting or facial fat transfer. This comprehensive procedure begins with the harvesting of excess fat from donor areas such as the abdomen, back, thighs, or hips. Dr. Azouz uses liposuction, to carefully remove fat cells from the donor area.
The harvested fat undergoes a purification process, meticulously removing contaminants, extra fluid, and damaged cells. This step guarantees that only healthy fat cells remain for grafting, contributing to the overall safety and success of the procedure.

What is the anesthesia for facial fat transfer?

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Azouz uses sedation and local anesthesia to both the donor area and face. This ensures that pain is controlled during liposuction as well as after fat grafting. The local anesthetic can help with pain for up to 24 hours after the procedure. Dr. Azouz avoids general anesthesia to minimize postoperative side effects and enhance recovery.

What is the recovery after facial fat grafting?

Immediately after the procedure, you may experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising. During the first few days, these symptoms should gradually fade. You may experience tightness, numbness, or tingling in the treated area for up to 2 weeks. These feelings are temporary, and they tend to go away as you recover. It can take up to 6 months for the full effects of your facial fat transfer to become apparent. Over this time, the transferred fat will naturally settle into its new position and swelling will resolve.

During your routine follow-up appointments, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Azouz will make specific recommendations for optimal recovery. To reduce swelling, get lots of rest and keep your head elevated. Apply cold packs to the affected area to alleviate swelling and discomfort. Stay away from strenuous activities or exercise for at least 2-3 weeks to allow the transferred fat to settle properly. Avoid direct sun exposure and use sunscreen to protect the treated area while it heals.

How Long Will the Results of Facial Fat Transfer Last?

Despite popular belief, facial fat transfers provide long-lasting results if post-procedure guidelines are carefully followed. In order to guarantee that cells generate and sustain a strong blood supply, it is imperative to minimize trauma to treated areas, especially avoiding compression. With the expertise of Dr. Azouz and proper post-operative care, you can expect the majority of your swelling to subside within the first 1 to 2 weeks. You will see your final results after several months. Facial fat transfers provide your face with a longer-lasting volume that keeps you looking young and fresh.
