Is your sagging face making you look older than you are?  Your sagging skin is likely due to the loss of facial fat.  Volume loss is a major cause of facial aging because it causes hollowness in the cheeks, temples, and the area around the eyes.  Facial fat transfer is a relatively simple technique for reversing volume loss in the face.  But how does facial fat transfer work?

What Is A Facial Fat Transfer?

Facial fat transfer or facial fat grafting is a procedure in which fat is removed from another part of the body and transferred to the face to restore volume.  Typical donor areas include the abdomen, flanks, or thighs.   Facial fat transfer can be done as a standalone procedure, or combined with other facial rejuvenation treatments such as a facelift or blepharoplasty for more enhanced results. 

How Does A Facial Fat Transfer Work?

Facial fat transfer is a multi-step procedure.  The fat is first harvested from the donor area using a gentle liposuction technique.  The extracted fat is processed to separate it from the body fluids, and then injected into specific areas of the face to replenish volume.

Fat transfer technology is now available in the form of BeautiFill non-surgical fat transfer.  BeautiFill is a laser-based fat transfer system that combines liposuction, fat grafting, and skin tightening.  BeautiFill harvests fat cells efficiently and this increases fat viability to ensure more consistent facial rejuvenation results.   The results of BeautiFill are long-lasting and look completely natural.

Facial areas that can be successfully treated with fat transfer include the cheeks, temples, nasolabial folds, and jawline.

Facial fat transfer is a wonderful way to improve signs of aging and restore a healthier, more youthful appearance.
