With age, areas of the face may begin to lose volume around the eyes, cheeks and jawline. Fat injection, also known as fat grafting, is a procedure that can help to restore lost volume in the face in order to provide a smoother, rejuvenated appearance.

While fat injections can improve the appearance of some lines and wrinkles, they are not the best treatment for severe surface wrinkles that may be better treated with laser resurfacing, a chemical peel or dermabrasion.

Am I A Good Candidate?

Dr. Stevens recommends fat injections for adult men and women in good physical and mental health. Good candidates should also be realistic in their expectations for the outcome of the procedure

The fat transfer process

First, fat cells are harvested from a donor area. A typical donor area may be the hips, the thighs, the stomach, or the lower back. These fat cells are then purified and sterilized. During the last phase, they are injected into their new home. Fat transfer is usually used to plump the cheeks, the temples or the lips, or to augment the breasts or the buttocks.

What to expect after surgery

There is usually very little pain or discomfort associated with fat injections. However, some swelling, bruising or redness may occur during the initial healing phase in both the donor and recipient sites. When overfilling is necessary, the treated area may appear puffy or swollen which can last for as much as several weeks. Work and light activity can often be resumed as soon as one day after your fat injection procedure.
