Fat grafting or fat transfer is a facial rejuvenation procedure that uses the patient’s own natural fat to restore lost facial volume and enhance the contours of the face. Fat grafting can provide beautiful results that look incredibly natural. Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Jeff Jumaily strives to provide all of our patients with outstanding results from their fat grafting in Beverly Hills.
What Is Fat Grafting?
Fat grafting (sometimes known as fat transfer) is a procedure to transfer patient’s own fat from one area to another. Fat grafting is a great tool to add volume to cheeks, areas around the eyes, temples, marionette lines, and cheek lines. Fat is typically harvested from the stomach or thighs. The fat is then isolated and separated before being placed in the desired areas of the face. The transfer to the face is done via very small needles. Long incisions are not needed. The procedure is done under sedation and discomfort is minimal.
Recovering from Fat Grafting
Fat grafting is performed under intravenous sedation which is safe and significantly improves patient recovery over the traditionally used general anesthesia. Patients experience less nausea, headaches, and grogginess with the use of intravenous sedation.
Recovery time is usually one to two weeks while the bruising and swelling subside. Pain is minimal and after-surgery care is straightforward.
