What is Facial Fat Grafting or Fat Transfer To Face?

Facial fat grafting is a minimally-invasive procedure that aims to restore a youthful appearance of the face. It involves taking fat from your abdomen and/or thighs by liposuction, purifying the fat, and transferring it to different areas of your face to restore lost volume from age related changes.

Common areas that can be treated include:

  • Midface / cheeks
  • Temples
  • Forehead
  • Upper eyelid hollowing
  • Lower eyelid / tear trough
  • Lower cheek hollowing / submalar depression
  • Indented scars

Facial fat grafting is often used in conjunction with surgical procedures such as lower eyelid surgery or facelift. Increasingly, fat transfer to face is also gaining popularity as a minimally invasive independent procedure that can produce a natural, long lasting effect.
