What is Facial Fat Grafting?
Facial fat grafting is a procedure that uses fat from one area of the body to plump or re-volumize other areas of the body. For example, if you want to add volume to your lips, cheeks, deep facial lines or under-eye area, this procedure may be for you. Also known as fat transfer or facial fat rejuvenation, facial fat grafting in San Jose is a minimally invasive procedure that can greatly improve your overall complexion without the need for surgery.

How is Facial Fat Grafting Performed?
The facial fat grafting procedure begins with removing fat from the “donor” site. This could be anywhere on your body that has excess fat to spare, including your hips, abs, thighs, buttocks or anywhere else. Your technician will first apply a local anesthetic, and then use a syringe to suction out the fat. After treating the fat cells – removing the blood and other fluids – this fat is then ready to be implanted into your treatment area, which is done with a small hypodermic needle.
Am I a Good Candidate for Facial Fat Grafting?
Anyone who wants to fill out facial lines or add volume to sunken areas of the face may be a good candidate for facial fat grafting. You must, however, have excess fat to spare in order to obtain fat from a donor site. Most importantly, patients should be in good health with no pre-existing conditions, and have realistic expectations of the outcome.
What are the Typical Results of Facial Fat Grafting?
Following the facial fat grafting procedure, our patients have been thrilled with their smoother, more youthful complexions, which you can see in our facial fat grafting before and after pictures. And while results are generally long-lasting, it does depend on the patient. Results have been known to last anywhere from three months to three years, so you may want to consider having multiple sessions to have the best outcome. Immediately following the procedure, do not massage the treatment area, and refrain from wearing makeup for at least 24 hours.
