What is Fat Transfer to the face?

Fat transfer to the face, also known as fat grafting or facial fat transplantation, is a cosmetic procedure that involves transferring fat from one area of the body to the face to restore volume, improve contours, and rejuvenate the appearance. This procedure is often used to address signs of aging, such as volume loss, hollowing, and wrinkles, as well as to enhance facial features and symmetry.

Here’s how fat transfer to the face typically works:

  1. Harvesting Fat: The procedure begins with the harvesting of fat from a donor site on the patient’s body, commonly the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. The fat is harvested using liposuction techniques.
  2. Processing Fat: Once the fat is harvested, it is processed to separate the fat cells from blood, oil, and other fluids. This typically involves centrifugation or filtration to purify the fat and create a concentrated solution of fat cells, known as the fat graft.
  3. Injection into the Face: The processed fat is then injected into specific areas of the face using small needles or cannulas. The injections are strategically placed to restore volume, fill in hollow areas, and enhance facial contours. Common areas targeted for fat transfer include the cheeks, temples, under-eye area, nasolabial folds (smile lines), and lips.
  4. Integration and Healing: Once injected, the fat graft integrates with the surrounding tissues and blood supply. Some of the transferred fat cells may be reabsorbed by the body in the weeks following the procedure, but a portion of the fat typically remains permanently. Over time, the injected fat matures, and the final results become more apparent.
