Facial Fat Grafting in Melville, NY

Modern aesthetic science has led to an array of treatments to restore lost facial volume. Facial fat grafting is among the most effective ways to achieve natural-looking results and long-lasting benefits for your skin. Loss of facial volume is a natural part of aging and becomes most pronounced around the cheeks, jawline, and eyes. Facial fat grafting can correct many of the signs of aging, restore plumpness and smooth lines and creases with your own natural fat.

Fat cells are harvested from an area of your body with an excess. Board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. James Romanelli, Dr. Yee Cheng Low, and Dr. John Layliev then artfully re-inject the purified fat to the desired areas of your face to create beautiful, lasting results.

With facial fat grafting, you don't just see a more youthful appearance; you have the added benefit of resculpting another area of your body. To learn more about facial fat grafting, contact North Shore Cosmetic Surgery in Melville, NY, to schedule a consultation.

Ideal candidates for facial fat grafting

You may be an ideal patient for facial fat grafting if you want a more youthful, refreshed facial look. Fat grafting can increase the volume and fullness of facial areas that appear gaunt or hollow. Good candidates are people who see the signs of facial aging or who have had a dramatic loss of weight.

This treatment is an excellent alternative if you have an allergy, intolerance, or do not want injections with traditional dermal fillers. Natural fat grafting is a minimally invasive option that does not lead to facial scars, involves minimal scarring from the liposuction in the donor area, and can create a stunning, very natural outcome.

The best results are achieved for those who have lost some degree of skin elasticity and want to restore smoothness by adding subtle, natural volume.

Procedure technique for facial fat grafting

Facial fat grafting is a two-step procedure that begins with the liposuction from the back, thighs, abdomen, love handles, or buttocks. Very little fat is required for facial fat grafting. The donor fat is refined to a more purified form and injected into the face to restore volume. The fat cells can be injected into the mid-face, cheek area, temples, or lips. We can also use different techniques and injection angles to provide the highest fat cell survival rate and the most natural-looking outcome.

What to expect from facial fat grafting

Depending on the donor area from which fat is harvested, you may need general or local anesthesia. Facial fat grafting is typically a simple outpatient surgery performed in one sitting or combined with other plastic surgeries, such as a facelift, neck lift, brow lift, or eyelid surgery. If you are only undergoing facial fat grafting, then the healing period should be one week or less. This quick recovery makes the surgery an outstanding option for a fast, genuinely beautiful outcome.
