Facial Fat Grafting

The facial fat grafting procedure completes two goals—it reduces areas of unwanted fat cells in the body and helps to sculpt the face. Common areas for injection include the cheeks, under eye area, jawline and lips. Similar to dermal fillers, facial fat grafting has been proven to sustain longer lasting effects.

Cosmetic Goals

The procedure uses cells from the patient’s own body. Individuals often choose to remove fat from the body that have not responded to regular dieting and exercise. Contouring enhancements include fuller cheeks, eye areas, lips and jawline while reducing the size of other areas of the body.

Is It Right For Me?

Liposuction is involved in this procedure and it is best suited for individuals who wish to remove fat cells from one area of the body as well as enhance distinct areas of the face. Ideal candidates are non-smokers, physically and mentally healthy adults with no serious medical issues.
