WHAT IS FACIAL FAT TRANSFER?
Nowadays, there are different procedures that refresh the youthful fullness and contours of your face, but fat grafting to the face is rising in popularity due to its natural outcomes and long-lasting benefits. Loss of volume, most commonly due to aging, tends to be more prominent around the cheeks, jawline, and eyes. Fat transfer with cutting-edge BeautiFill® Alma laser technology can be used to correct some of the most common signs of aging, and it restores fullness by smoothing facial wrinkles and folds in your face through your own fatty tissue. By gathering extra fat from areas of your body, Allurant Regenerative Medical Spa can carefully apply the purified fat to the desired parts of your face for beautiful, long-lasting outcomes. To get more information about facial fat grafting, contact our San Diego, CA med spa to schedule a consultation.
FACIAL FAT TRANSFER FAQS
Should I get a dermal filler or fat transfer?
Both a facial fat graft and an injectable wrinkle filler (like JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®) may correct the appearance of lines and wrinkles, as well as restore volume. While wrinkle fillers may create great results, a fat graft to the face often lasts longer and looks more natural. If you need help deciding how much volume you want and where, our aesthetic team at Allurant Regenerative Medical Spa might suggest starting with dermal fillers. As soon as you have decided what you like, we can schedule a fat graft to your face in San Diego, CA for results that last years instead of months.
Can facial fat grafting be combined with another procedure?
Facial fat grafting can be performed with another procedure, such as BOTOX® (a wrinkle relaxer) or a skin treatment (for example, a facial). Facial fat grafting is also a popular treatment to complement another cosmetic surgery. A fat transfer will add volume to improve the proportions of your face, which enhances the surgical results of a facelift, neck lift, or chin augmentation. Talk to a member of our team about your needs and wants so we can craft a plan with a nonsurgical treatment that reaches all your aesthetic goals.
How long does facial fat grafting take?
The length of time needed for your facial fat transfer will vary, depending on the amount of fat being removed, plus the volume needed to attain the desired result. Once your plan is developed in your initial consultation, we will discuss what you should expect, for example, how long it will take. Our team takes the time to carefully graft thin layers of fat with advanced techniques so your results are natural.
Which areas of the face can be improved with fat grafting?
Facial fat grafting can be used in several locations to increase volume or fill in wrinkles. Fat grafting is ideal to enhance the cheeks so that the area appears fuller and lifted without surgery. Additionally, transferred fat can also be used to add volume to your lips. You can also consider a fat transfer to improve the hollow under-eye areas. A fat transfer to your face can also treat the appearance of pitted acne scars and wrinkles (for example, brow furrows and marionette lines). Our team will develop your personal treatment plan to focus on your concerns and cosmetic goals.
