WHAT IS FACE FAT TRANSFER?

Neurotoxins like BOTOX Cosmetic® and dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® are excellent choices for those interested in easing facial aging signs. Not only can these treatments aid in wrinkle reduction, they can also improve the contours of your face. However, while these treatments offer temporary solutions, a face fat transfer can give you the facial contours you want for much longer. To learn more and experience this treatment for yourself, schedule your appointment today.

HOW IS A FACE FAT TRANSFER PERFORMED?

A face fat transfer is two surgeries in one, combining liposuction with natural face augmentation. In this procedure, the doctor first identifies areas on your body where you wish to remove excess fat. During the procedure, that fat is removed through liposuction and then injected into the face until you have reached your desired facial volume. Because there are two procedures involved, the whole process usually takes between four to six hours. Once it is complete, you will enjoy fuller cheeks and a more sculpted chin.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING A FACE FAT TRANSFER PROCEDURE?

Face fat transfer procedures are performed by our own Dr. Boudreault at our AAAASF surgery center in Palo Alto. These treatments are done under local anesthesia and involve the extraction and relocation of fat. Dr. Boudrealt will use liposuction to collect fat from your abdomen or thighs. The collected fat will then be processed by centrifuging, filtering, or rinsing. Once ready, this pure liquid fatty tissue will be injected into the trouble areas on your face. The process will be done through several minute injections to ensure even distribution and proper integration with your facial tissue. This entire process will take about an hour to complete.

HOW LONG IS RECOVERY TIME FROM A FACE FAT TRANSFER PROCEDURE?

Soreness can typically be felt in the treatment areas after the treatment, but this can easily be managed by over-the-counter pain medication. Additionally, you may experience swelling, but this will usually diminish after the third day. Social activities can be restarted after about one week, sometimes with the help of some make-up. You may resume activity the day after the procedure, but it is important to avoid strenuous activity until your face fully heals.

WHAT DOES A FACE FAT TRANSFER TREAT?

A face fat transfer is an excellent choice for those interested in correcting deep wrinkles and folds. The integration of fat can also treat irregularities as well as improve volume in the cheekbones, cheeks, and chin. The addition of volume can have a positive impact on the quality of your overlying skin. After your body absorbs a percentage of the fat, 20-50% the correction can be considered permanent.

HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS FROM A FACE FAT TRANSFER PROCEDURE?

It may take some time for your face to fully heal from the procedure. Once the initial swelling and soreness diminish, it may still take a few weeks for some of the injected fat to be absorbed into your body. This process can be gradual, therefore it is important to be patient. When some of the fat has diminished, the results of the procedure will become permanent. You can enjoy an increase in volume as well as a decline in the appearance of wrinkles once the fat has fully settled.

HOW MUCH DOES A FACE FAT TRANSFER PROCEDURE COST?

The average cost of a face fat transfer is $5,100, but this depends on the amount of fat that is harvested and transferred. This estimate includes anesthesia and facility fees. If you would like your face fat transfer procedure soon but would like to spread out the payments into smaller monthly increments over time, we are happy to offer flexible payment plans through CareCredit and Alphaeon. Many of our patients will choose to apply for credit cards with longer terms at 0% interest, so you can enjoy your results soon without the immediate financial burden upfront.
