Achieve youthful fullness with Facial Fat Grafting

While getting older is usually associated with wrinkles, fat loss plays a major role in the aging process. Collagen reduction, which provides structural support, leads to sagging skin and diminishing vital fat deposits. Common age-related concerns include hollow cheeks, sunken eyes, and the development of wrinkles as facial volume declines.

Thankfully, there are now numerous treatments available to address the facial signs of aging. These include nerve-freezing injections to reduce wrinkles, surgical facelifts that restore volume by tightening the skin and muscles, and injectable fillers that replenish lost volume. In addition to synthetic fillers, the patient's own fat stores can now be utilized for facial rejuvenation through fat grafting. Patients from all over Southern California flock to Dr. Nassif's Beverly Hills office to benefit from this cutting-edge treatment.

Why Choose Fat Grafting?

Facial fat graft procedures offer multiple advantages for those looking to address aging concerns. Only a qualified physician, well-acquainted with your unique situation, can provide an accurate assessment and help you make an informed choice. Generally speaking, the factors that drive many of our patients to select facial fat grafting in Beverly Hills include the following:

Natural in both appearance and approach

Fat is the natural substance responsible for providing your skin with its volume, shape, and contours. While alternative filler options aim to mimic the effects of natural fat, using the patient's natural fat can achieve results that are more in line with their aesthetic goals. Dr. Nassif meticulously injects the fat into your face to replicate the natural distribution, yielding a wholly authentic appearance and almost no sign of having had work done. Beyond that, although synthetic fillers are proven to be safe and compatible with the body, some patients prefer the idea of an all-natural alternative and are uncomfortable with the notion of introducing synthetic materials into their bodies – which is where fat grafting comes into play.

Long-lasting results

Instead of merely diminishing the signs of facial volume loss, our Los Angeles fat transfer procedure actively tackles the issue by replenishing the lost volume. Unlike temporary dermal fillers, which get reabsorbed by the body, fat transfers, while not permanent, offer enduring enhancements.

Stem cells and their benefits

Fat collected from your own body possesses a distinct advantage in that it contains rejuvenating stem cells. Stem cells can transform into various cell types within the body, effectively replacing and mending neighboring cells. These stem cells initiate an internal rejuvenation of the face, delivering enduring, youthful outcomes.

The "two birds with one stone" effect

Most of us have wished at some point that we could transfer fat from areas like our thighs or stomach to other parts of our body. With fat grafting, that is now a possibility. The fat grafting process offers a twofold advantage, involving the removal of fat through liposuction or a similar method from the donor site and then utilizing it to replenish volume in areas affected by the aging process.

How long does it take to see the aesthetic results of facial fat grafting?

Is facial fat transfer a painful procedure?

Discomfort after facial fat grafting is generally minor and easily managed with oral pain medication. Both the donor area from which fat is extracted and the facial area where purified fat is injected may feel tender for a few days post-procedure.

Will I be under general anesthesia during facial fat transfer?

Every patient's pain tolerance varies. Typically, facial fat grafting involves intravenous sedation alongside local anesthesia. We always take into consideration the patient's unique pain threshold to ensure a comfortable procedure.

Why is facial fat transfer considered superior to dermal fillers?

Many patients seek longer-lasting solutions. Dermal fillers eventually get reabsorbed by the body, while facial fat transfer incorporates transferred fat cells into your body, providing enduring results in the new location.

How is the fat harvested for facial fat grafting?

Fat is harvested during facial fat grafting using a small hollow needle known as a cannula. The size of the fat cell parcel is a crucial factor for its future viability in the new location. The extraction process involves gentle suction, minimizing cell damage, and is obtained from areas with excess fat deposits, such as the thighs, buttocks, or love handles.
