Facial Fat Grafting

Facial Fat Grafting to Restore Youth

The goal of today’s men and woman is to maintain their youthful appearance by undergoing smaller and less invasive procedures. Facial fat grafting is one such cosmetic surgery procedure which helps restore youthful facial fullness by filling the deep nasolabial folds, lower eyelid hollows, forehead wrinkles, and frown lines.

Facial fat grafting is rather a simple procedure with minimal discomfort and recovery. While simple in theory, it is rather a powerful tool which delivers significant facial rejuvenation while maintaining the natural appearance of the face and eyes. Unlike a facelift, facial and eyelid fat injections, do not give a stretched-out or mask-like facial appearance. That is precisely why facial micro-fat grafting is utilized as an adjunct to facelift, forehead lift, and mid-facelift, in order to deliver a more natural look. While older facial rejuvenation techniques such as a standard facelift focus on reversing the effects of gravity, today’s combined structural fat injections and facelift techniques that are performed focus on restoring facial volume and fullness that is present at youth.

Micro-fat grafting of the eyelids fills the hollows while smoothening some of the fine lines, shallow furrows, and grooves. It is often combined with blepharoplasty or eyelid tuck to remove excess eyelid skin and folds. Facial fat grafting of the nasolabial folds and the cheeks soften the facial lines while contouring the face and augmenting the cheeks to their youthful state. This can be combined with a mid-facelift, and/or blepharoplasty, or Geneoplasty with cheek implants in order to rejuvenate the middle face of a person who is still too young to have a facelift.

While many younger individuals often want fuller and sexier lips many mature women overlook the fact that aging thins out the lips. Restoring fullness to the lips is maybe one of the most overlooked steps in rejuvenating the aging face. Micro-fat grafting of the lips can bring back youth not only to the lips but also to the entire face.

Finally, the combination of all mentioned facial fat grafting procedures into a total re-contouring of the face is call Structural facial fat grafting which revives the cheeks, nasolabial folds, eyelids, foreheads, jaw lines, and lips. It is not uncommon to combine structural fat grafting with other facial cosmetic surgery procedures.
