WHAT IS Facial Fat TRANSFER?

There are plenty of procedures that 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. Volume loss, frequently caused by aging, is usually more prominent around the cheeks, jawline, and eyes. 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. 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.

Facial Fat Transfer FAQ

Should I get a dermal filler or fat transfer?
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 fat graft to the face 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.

Can facial fat grafting be combined with another procedure?
Facial fat grafting can be combined with a nonsurgical treatment like BOTOX® (a wrinkle relaxer) or a skin treatment (for example, a facial). A fat transfer has also become a popular treatment to complement another cosmetic surgery. A fat transfer can add volume that helps to improve the balance of your face during a facelift, neck lift, or chin augmentation. Talk to Dr. Ricks in your consultation about your wants so he can develop a comprehensive plan with surgical and nonsurgical procedures that help to reach all of your goals.

How long does facial fat grafting take?
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.

Which areas of the face can be improved with fat grafting?
A fat transfer can be used in several areas to add volume or decrease lines. Fat grafting is ideally designed to augment the mid-face so that the area appears lifted and fuller without having to undergo 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, 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.
