Exploring the Face Fat Transfer Procedure
Your plastic surgeon may recommend a face fat transfer procedure for you if you are dissatisfied with the signs of aging on your face. Over time, the face loses volume, creating jowls and a flattened cheek area. This minimally invasive plastic surgery restores your youthful appearance by adding volume. It even improves the texture of your skin.
During a face fat transfer procedure, the plastic surgeon removes unwanted fat from various areas of the body. Fat is then injected into the facial areas to plump up the skin and restore volume. The use of the body’s own fat for this procedure—as opposed to injectable fillers—means that your results will last longer. You can expect to return to your normal activity level within one to two weeks.
