Facial Fat Transfer in San Diego, CA

What Is Facial Fat Transfer?

As you get older or lose weight, it's common to experience a loss of volume around the cheeks, eyes, and jawline, creating a tired, aged, or "hollow" appearance in the face. Thanks to advancements in plastic surgery, it's now possible to rejuvenate your appearance and fill out your features through a technique known as facial fat transfer (or facial fat grafting). Facial fat transfer is used at Rodriguez Plastic Surgery to minimize some of the most common signs of aging, and it increases volume by smoothing facial wrinkles and folds on your face using your own fat. By taking excess fat from your body, Dr. Jose Rodriguez can skillfully place the purified fat into the desired sections of your face for lasting, beautiful results. As an added benefit, facial fat grafting can also improve the contours of your body by relocating fat. To get more information about facial fat grafting, contact our office in San Diego, CA to book a consultation with Dr. Rodriguez.

How Does A Facial Fat Transfer Work?

Fat transfer is a two-step procedure that includes harvesting the fat and relocating it. Since such a small amount of fat is needed, the process usually involves local or mild anesthesia. To begin, Dr. Rodriguez will perform liposuction to remove fat, which may be taken from your hips, flanks, or abdomen. Once the fat is removed, it can be processed and then placed in syringes. Dr. Rodriguez will use different injection angles and techniques to ensure high immersion rates into your skin and to create evenness. According to your treatment plan, fat may be transferred to your lips, cheeks, and/or beneath your eyes to add volume, as well as to improve lines and facial depressions.

What Are the Benefits of A Facial Fat Transfer?

  • Less risk of allergic effect
  • Reduces lines and furrows
  • Reliable enhancements

Are facial fat transfer results permanent?

The results of a facial fat transfer can last for years or even decades, but patients should keep in mind that the natural aging process may cause subtle changes to your outcome over time. Additionally, gaining or losing weight can impact the size of the transferred fat cells, which can also compromise your cosmetic results. Maintaining a stable weight and healthy lifestyle is the best way to preserve your fat transfer results for as long as possible.

Where can fat be transferred to in the face?

Facial fat grafting is a highly versatile procedure that allows patients to smooth out wrinkles, fill in lines, and plump up deflated features almost anywhere on the face. Some of the most common treatment areas for a facial fat transfer include the cheeks, lips, and beneath the eyes.

How long will I need to take off work for a facial fat transfer?

Because the amount of fat harvested and transferred during a facial fat transfer is typically minimal, and because the treatment areas are usually small, the procedure does not generally require an extensive recovery period. Most patients are able to return to work and other activities within just a few days.
