Are you looking for a way to rejuvenate your face and achieve a more youthful appearance? Fat transfer to the face may be the solution you’ve been searching for. At La Bella Cosmetic Surgery Center in San Jose, California, Dr. Dang uses local anesthesia to ensure a comfortable and safe experience for patients, while providing natural and great results.
What is Fat Transfer to Face?
Fat transfer to the face, also known as facial fat grafting or fat injection, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the transfer of fat from one area of the body to the face. The procedure is designed to restore volume to the face, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and improve facial contours for a more youthful and refreshed look.
Reminder: Most of the time this procedure is done together with liposuction of the face or body. Liposuction requires some time to heal, and as the skin heals, it automatically molds around the newly shaped area. So, you can offer a warm welcome to a more defined contoured shape!
How Does Fat Transfer to Face Work?
The fat transfer process involves three main steps:
● Harvesting: During the first step, Dr. Dang will use liposuction to remove fat from a donor area of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs.
● Purification: The harvested fat is then purified to remove any impurities or excess fluids.
● Injection: The harvested fat is then purified to remove any impurities or excess fluids.
Benefits of Fat Transfer to Face
An incision is made in non-noticeable areas that need more volume to proceed with the fat transfer. Some areas could be the lips, under eyes, nasolabial folds, cheeks, chin, forehead, nose, etc. The fat acts like dermal fillers and is more natural looking.
There are several benefits to choosing fat transfer to the face over other cosmetic procedures, including:
- Natural-looking results: Since the procedure uses your own fat, the results are more natural-looking and long-lasting compared to other fillers or implants.
- Minimally invasive: Fat transfer to the face is a minimally invasive procedure that requires only local anesthesia, reducing the risk of complications and downtime.
- Versatile: The procedure can be used to enhance various areas of the face, including the cheeks, lips, jawline, and under-eye area.
Recovery and Results
After the procedure, patients may experience some mild swelling and bruising, which typically resolves within a few days. Most patients are able to return to work and resume normal activities within a week.
The results of fat transfer to the face are long-lasting, with many patients experiencing natural-looking results for up to several years. However, it’s important to note that the final results may take several weeks to fully develop as the swelling subsides and the fat settles into its new location.
