As we grow older our face become more and more affected by the sun, gravity and use of expression muscles (chewing, smiling, etc). Deep tissues loose the ability to maintain a young look and expression marks appear on our faces. Fat grafting can help you fill the defects and regain younger appearance. It can be used to fill expression folds, sunken cheeks, scars and lips. This procedure is not sufficient to treat deep defects like multiple grooves around the mouse of heavy smokers. It can be done as isolated treatment or as a combination with laser, facelift and botox.

It's a procedure which might be needed to be repeated several times to achieve the desired result. Swelling, which is commonly seen after fat is injected, usually goes within 2-3 weeks. The degree of swelling mostly depends on the area injected. Generally patients who are considered for fat injection are supposed to be in good health. If you have a history of abnormal bleeding or swelling you should notify your surgeon before the treatment. A smoking history should be disclosed to your surgeon. Each patient's anatomy and proportions vary, and the decision to utilize fat injection techniques depends on the goals of the patient as well as the surgeon.

Fat grafting is an clinic-based procedure that is usually performed under local anesthesia. The fat used in fat grafting is harvested through liposuction from elsewhere in your body, usually an area where you have some to spare. The fat is then sterilized, processed and injected into the target site in a process called autologous fat transplantation or microlipoinjection.


Your face may be a bit swollen at first and it might look like you were over-filled. Many surgeons inject extra fat because not all of it will survive in its new location. The swelling will subside and the final results will emerge in three to four months.
