What Is a Facial Fat Transfer?

Facial fat transfers are facial contouring procedures that are increasing in popularity as they provide natural improvements and lasting benefits for the skin. Volume loss in the face, often caused by aging, is usually more prominent around the cheeks, jawline, and eyes. Facial fat transfers (or grafting) can decrease these typical signs of aging and increase suppleness in the skin by smoothing lines, wrinkles, and folds on your face through your own transferred fatty tissue. By taking excess fat from your body, our expert facial plastic surgeons can carefully apply the purified fat to the problem areas of your face for lasting, beautiful results.

How Does a Fat Transfer Work?

As a minimally invasive treatment, facial fat transfers at Colorado Facial Plastic Surgery can fill in fine lines and wrinkles, volumize sunken cheeks, plump thin lips, and address other facial aesthetic concerns. Facial fat grafting is a two-part procedure that includes harvesting the fat from the hips, abdomen, thighs, or flanks using liposuction. The harvested fat is then purified and artfully injected into your lips, cheeks, and/or beneath your eyes to create volume and fill in lines, wrinkles, and facial pits. While you might notice some improvements initially, it may take several weeks before you see your final results. A small amount of fat may be reabsorbed by your body, but with appropriate maintenance, your facial fat transfer can provide lasting, natural-looking results.

Facial Fat Transfer FAQ

How much does a facial fat transfer cost?
Your cost for a facial fat transfer will include fat removal and will vary based on how much volume is being transferred. After a thorough assessment, your surgeon will determine how much fat is needed to create your goals and will prepare a personal plan. After this, they can begin to estimate costs, like facility and anesthesia fees. To help make your treatment easier to afford, Colorado Facial Plastic Surgery takes several payment methods and can help you find low-interest financing.

Should I get a dermal filler or fat transfer?
Either a facial fat transfer or a dermal filler (for example, Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®) may improve the visibility of lines and wrinkles as well as restore facial volume. While dermal fillers can create beautiful results, a facial fat transfer often lasts longer and looks more natural. To help you decide how much volume you want and in which areas, your surgeon may suggest using wrinkle fillers. Once you've figured out what you like, they can perform a facial fat transfer for long-lasting results.

Can a facial fat transfer be combined with another procedure?
A facial fat transfer can be combined with another procedure such as BOTOX® (a wrinkle relaxer) or a skin treatment (for example, a facial). A fat transfer will increase volume to improve the balance and proportion of your face, which enhances the surgical results of a facelift, neck lift, or chin augmentation. Talk to your surgeon during your consultation about all your needs and wants, and they can create a plan with surgical and nonsurgical procedures that help reach all your goals.

How long does a facial fat transfer take?
The length of time needed for your facial fat transfer will depend on the amount of fat being removed, plus the volume required to attain the desired result. As soon as your treatment plan is created in your initial consultation, your surgeon can go over what you should expect, like how long it will take for liposuction, fat preparation, and grafting. Our talented surgeons take their time carefully employing advanced techniques — so your results are beautiful and natural.

Which areas of the face can be improved with a facial fat transfer?
A fat transfer can be used in several locations to increase volume or fill in lines. A fat transfer is ideally designed to augment or enhance the cheeks so that this area looks fuller and lifted without surgery. Additionally, transferred fat may also be used as a natural lip filler. You may also consider a fat transfer to improve the sunken or hollow areas under your eyes. Facial fat transfers may also correct scars, wrinkles (like marionette lines or brow furrows). Your surgeon will develop your personal treatment plan to address your concerns and goals.
