How Does A Facial Fat Transfer Work?

Facial fat transfer is a two-step procedure that includes harvesting the fat and injection. Dr. Ortiz typically uses twilight or local anesthesia since such a minimal amount of fat is needed. To start, Dr. Ortiz will perform liposuction to extract fat, which will probably be taken from your abdomen, hips, or flanks. Once the fat is harvested, it can be processed and then placed in syringes. Dr. Ortiz will use different injection angles and techniques to ensure ideal immersion rates into your skin and to create symmetry. Based on your plan, fat will be transferred to your lips, cheeks, and/or below your eyes to create volume as well as to improve lines and facial scars.

Who Is An Ideal Candidate for A Facial Fat Transfer?

A fat transfer can help if you want to add volume that looks natural to certain places on your face. A facial fat transfer may improve wrinkles such as laugh lines, Crow's feet, and smile lines. A facial fat transfer may also be used to improve the appearance of acne scars and pitted areas. You can also enhance your cheeks and lips for a rejuvenated appearance. With results similar to a wrinkle filler injection, a facial fat transfer is a good option if you want longer-lasting results. In order to be a candidate for a facial fat transfer, you need to have enough excess fat in your body to fulfill your goals.


Should I get a dermal filler or fat transfer?
Both a fat transfer to the face and a dermal filler can improve the visibility of fine lines and static wrinkles while also adding volume to the lips, cheeks, or under-eye area. Although fillers may create beautiful results, a facial fat transfer usually looks more natural and lasts longer.

How long does facial fat grafting take?
The procedure time for a fat transfer will vary, depending on how much fat is being taken, plus the volume needed to reach your goals. As soon as your treatment plan is developed in your initial consultation, Dr. José A. Ortiz, N.M.D. can go over what you can expect, including the time it will take for liposuction, fat preparation, and grafting. Dr. José A. Ortiz, N.M.D. takes his time carefully inject even layers of fat with innovative techniques so your results look beautiful and natural.

Which areas of the face can be improved with fat grafting?
Facial fat grafting can be used in a number of locations to increase volume or reduce wrinkles. Fat grafting is ideal to augment the mid-face so that the area looks lifted and fuller without surgery. In addition, fat may also be used to add volume to your lips. You can also consider a fat transfer to improve the hollow or sunken under-eye areas. A fat transfer to your face can also treat scars and static wrinkles, like brow furrows and marionette lines. Dr. José A. Ortiz, N.M.D. will develop your personal treatment plan to address your concerns and aesthetic goals.
