Fat transfer/Face

Refresh Your Appearance Naturally

Why choose facial fat transfer?

Facial fat transfer is chosen for several reasons:

  • Natural Results: It provides natural-looking results because it uses your own body fat, which integrates well with facial tissues.
  • Volume Restoration: It effectively restores lost volume in areas such as cheeks, temples, and under-eye hollows, which can improve facial contours and rejuvenate appearance.
  • Longevity: The transferred fat can potentially provide long-lasting results compared to temporary fillers, as some of the fat typically survives and becomes permanent.
  • Dual Benefit: It combines the benefits of liposuction (fat removal from unwanted areas) with facial rejuvenation, achieving a more balanced and youthful appearance.
  • Safety: Since it uses your own tissue, there is minimal risk of allergic reactions or rejection.
  • Overall, facial fat transfer is a popular choice for those seeking natural and lasting facial rejuvenation.

Results of facial fat transfer

About 30% of injected fat cells may not “survive” the transplantation process. To become part of the tissue, it is necessary for a network of blood vessels to form that will supply them with oxygenated blood. Sometimes, more fat is initially injected, leading to temporary swelling of the face. However, this is done because it is expected that some of the cells will be naturally absorbed through a process of natural selection.

A portion of the fat obtained through liposuction can be stored and preserved for potential future corrections. It is kept under completely sterile conditions at low temperatures, following the protocol of the World Health Organization.

Preparation and Results

Preparation for facial fat transfer

Preparation for fat transfer involves consultations with a surgeon to determine the ideal areas for liposuction and transfer.

Facial fat transfer procedure

Fat transfer involves liposuction of fat from selected parts of the body, followed by injecting purified fat cells into desired areas of the face. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and typically takes about 90 minutes, promising natural and long-lasting results.

Recovery after facial fat transfer

Recovery is fast, with minimal swelling and discomfort, allowing you to return to your daily activities soon after the procedure.

Risks after facial fat transfer

Bruising and mild swelling at the injection sites are common risks after facial fat transfer. Some individuals may also experience uneven skin tone post-transfer, which can often be addressed with cold compresses and gentle massages.


How long does recovery take?

Most patients return to normal activities within a few days after surgery, with complete recovery and visible results typically seen within 5-7 days.

While the risks are minimal, slight swelling and bruising at the injection sites are possible. Our team will provide you with all necessary information regarding postoperative care to minimize any unwanted effects.

The results are long-lasting, but it’s important to note that approximately 30% of transferred fat cells may not “survive” the process. Because of this, surgeons may inject a larger volume of fat to compensate for expected absorption.
