Volume loss, frequently caused by aging, is usually more prominent around the cheeks, jawline, and eyes. Many procedures restore the contours and volume of your face; however, autologous fat transfer to the face is increasing in popularity because of its natural-looking results and lasting benefits for the skin. By gathering excess fat from your body, Dr. Jon Ricks in Frisco, TX, can artfully place the purified fat into the needed parts of your face for lasting, beautiful results. To learn more about facial fat grafting in Frisco contact Ciao Bella Medical Spa to make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Ricks.
Autologous fat transfer to the face with advanced BeautiFill® technology can be used to correct the most common signs of aging, and it restores volume by smoothing facial wrinkles and folds on your face using your own fat.
A Long-Lasting Look You’ll Love
A facial fat transfer or facial fat graft can be used in several areas to add volume or decrease lines and wrinkles. Fat grafting is designed to augment the mid-face (and other sections of the body) so that the area appears lifted and fuller without surgery. In addition, transferred fat can also be used to add volume to your lips. You may also consider a fat graft to improve the hollow or sunken under-eye areas. Facial fat grafting may also improve the appearance of scars and wrinkles (brow furrows, marionette lines). Dr. Ricks will develop your custom treatment plan to focus on one or more areas of your face based on your needs and aesthetic goals.
In Expert Hands
If you have excess body fat and are looking to correct volume loss and signs of age, you are likely a good candidate for facial fat transfer. A facial fat graft or a dermal filler (like JUVÉDERM and Restylane) may improve the appearance of lines and static wrinkles while restoring your face’s volume. Although wrinkle fillers can give you beautiful results, a facial fat graft typically lasts longer and looks more natural. Once you have decided what you want, he can perform a fat graft on your face for results that last years instead of months.

"Dr. Ricks is a great doctor! He’s compassionate and understanding. He also takes time to listen to what I have to say instead of trying to rush me out, which is very important. He also takes time to call to check on me after the many surgeries that I have had, and that says a lot. Dr. Ricks goes above and beyond for his patients. A doctor that goes that extra mile and still has time to run a full time business says a lot. THANK YOU, DR.RICKS."

"Dr. Ricks is by far the best OBGYN out there. From the first appointment, he has been great. His bedside manner is amazing, and he is truly knowledgeable and will spend the time with you to be sure you understand what’s going on, too. He will go above and beyond for his patients and has personally done that for me, as well as a couple of my friends that see him too. The office staff and clinical team are also top-notch…You’re not just another number to any of them. Hands down, the best office."

Correct Signs of Age
After your initial consultation for a facial fat transfer Frisco injectables expert, Dr. Jon Ricks will develop a treatment plan just for you. The day of your procedure, you will be brought into the treatment room and thoroughly prepped. Our laser lipo cannula, which is attached to our Beautifill system, is used to remove fat from the sites on the body that were chosen during your consultation, which is then prepared so that only whole, undamaged fat cells are used. Finally, the fat cells are injected into the targeted areas to obtain the desired appearance.
A Soft, Natural Look
Dr. Jon Ricks will clearly go over all post-care and what you should expect in recovery during your initial consultation, as well as answer any questions during your appointment. There may be bruising and some swelling. Both generally go mostly away in a couple of days, and the swelling should be completely gone within a month.
Total Facial Rejuvenation
As your recovery period draws to a close, your swelling will go down and the fat transferred to your new area will largely remain. Because this fat is from your own body, the cells that make it through the transfer process will stay there, growing and shrinking over time like fat cells in any other part of your body. You will also see a reduction in size in the donor location. While those fat cells are gone for good, keep in mind that other fat cells in the area will continue to grow and shrink. Maintaining a healthy balance of diet and exercise is a great way to ensure your facial fat transfer results last.
You Deserve to Glow!

Either a facial fat graft or a dermal filler (like JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®) may improve the appearance of lines and static wrinkles while also restoring volume to your face. Although wrinkle fillers can give you wonderful results, a facial fat transfer typically lasts longer and looks more natural. If you need help deciding how much volume you want and where Dr. Ricks may recommend using wrinkle fillers. Once you have decided what you want, he can perform a fat graft to your face for results that last years instead of months.
Once your facial fat transfer has settled and healed around four to six weeks after the procedure you may combine with additional treatments such as neurotoxins and/or laser treatments. Fat transfer has also become a popular treatment to complement another cosmetic or aesthetic procedure. Talk to Dr. Ricks in your consultation about your desired results so he can develop a comprehensive plan with surgical and nonsurgical procedures that help to reach all of your goals.
The procedure time for a facial fat graft will vary depending on the amount of fat being removed, as well as the volume required to reach your goals. Once your plan is developed in your initial consultation, Dr. Ricks will discuss what you can expect, including the time it will take. Dr. Ricks takes his time carefully grafting thin layers of fat with innovative techniques — so your outcomes look beautiful.
