Facial Fat Grafting RESULTS

What is Facial Fat Grafting ?

Facial Fat Grafting, also known as facial fat transfer or fat injection, is a cosmetic procedure that involves transferring fat from one area of the body to the face to restore volume, enhance contours, and rejuvenate the facial appearance.
During the procedure, Dr. Chahin will first harvest fat from a donor site, typically areas such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks, through liposuction. The harvested fat is then processed and purified to remove impurities and excess fluids. Finally, the purified fat is injected into targeted areas of the face, such as the cheeks, temples, lips, or under-eye hollows, to restore volume and improve overall facial harmony.

What is the process?

The process includes harvesting fat through liposuction from donor sites, purifying it, and injecting it into specific facial areas. Recovery is generally quick, and over time, the transplanted fat integrates, providing a rejuvenated and more youthful facial appearance.

Benefits of Facial Fat Grafting

Natural-looking results

Facial Fat Grafting uses your body’s own fat cells to restore volume and contours to the face. Since the fat is sourced from your own body, it blends seamlessly with existing tissues, resulting in natural-looking and long-lasting results.

Volume restoration

As we age, our face tends to lose volume, leading to a sunken and hollow appearance. Facial Fat Grafting addresses this concern by strategically injecting fat into areas of the face that have lost volume, such as the cheeks, temples, and under-eye hollows. This restores a youthful and fuller appearance to the face.

Long-lasting results

Compared to temporary facial fillers, which may require repeated injections, Facial Fat Grafting offers long-lasting results. The transferred fat cells have the potential to survive and maintain their volume for several years or even permanently, providing a more sustainable solution for facial rejuvenation.

Improved skin quality

The fat injected during the procedure contains stem cells and growth factors that can help improve the quality and texture of the overlying skin. This can lead to a more youthful and radiant complexion.

Versatile and customizable

Facial Fat Grafting is a versatile procedure that can be tailored to meet individual needs and goals. Dr. Chahin can precisely sculpt and contour the face by adjusting the amount of fat injected in different areas, allowing for a personalized and harmonious enhancement.
Procedure Timeline

During your initial consultation, you will meet with Dr. Chahin to discuss your goals, assess your suitability for Facial Fat Grafting, and create a customized treatment plan. The consultation typically lasts around an hour.

Prior to the procedure, you may be required to undergo certain pre-operative tests and evaluations to ensure you are in good health. You may also receive instructions on pre-operative care, such as avoiding certain medications or supplements. This phase typically takes place in the days or weeks leading up to the surgery.
On the day of the surgery, you will be administered anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Dr. Chahin will then perform liposuction to harvest fat from the donor area, such as the abdomen or thighs. The harvested fat will be processed and purified. Once ready, Dr. Chahin will carefully inject the fat into the desired areas of the face. The duration of the surgery can range from one to several hours, depending on the complexity of the procedure.
After the surgery, you will be monitored in a recovery area to ensure your safety and comfort. You may experience swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort in the treated areas, which are normal and temporary. Dr. Chahin may provide you with instructions on post-operative care, such as wearing compression garments and taking prescribed medications. The initial recovery period typically lasts a few days to a week, during which you may need to limit your activities and follow specific guidelines for proper healing.
Following your Facial Fat Grafting procedure, you will have several follow-up appointments with Dr. Chahin. These appointments allow Dr. Chahin to assess your healing progress, monitor your results, and address any concerns or questions you may have. The number and frequency of post-operative appointments will vary depending on your individual recovery process.

Is Facial Fat Grafting a safe procedure?
Facial Fat Grafting is generally considered a safe procedure when performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Fadi Chahin. However, as with any surgical procedure, there are inherent risks and potential complications. Dr. Chahin will thoroughly assess your health and discuss the potential risks and complications with you during the consultation.
How long do the results of Facial Fat Grafting last?
The longevity of the results can vary from person to person. While some of the transferred fat cells may be reabsorbed by the body, a significant portion typically establishes a blood supply and survives long-term. The remaining fat cells can provide long-lasting results, but the aging process and lifestyle factors can still affect the overall appearance over time.
