Using Facial Fat Transfer Surgery To Establish Balance & Highlight Features

As we naturally age, many of us experience volume loss in the face which can become a source of insecurity. Facial fat grafting surgery (often referred to as “facial fat transfer”) uniquely restores youthfulness in the face by using the body’s own fat to correct thinning or hollowed features, sinking cheekbones and overall signs of aging. Expert facial plastic surgeon Dr. Michelle Sieffert has perfected this form of rejuvenation here in Columbus, Ohio.

What Is A Facial Fat Transfer?

During autologous fat transfer surgery, a surgeon simply takes fat from an area of the body where you don’t want it and injects it where you do. Fat transfer is an advanced, minimally invasive surgical procedure used to safely fill out or plump tissue under aging areas, scars and deep wrinkles. It refines natural contours and smooths the surface of the skin.

Dr. Sieffert’s innovative technique allows for the precise augmentation and contouring of facial features, resulting in a natural look, a refreshed appearance and highlighted features.

Frequently Asked Questions

Fat grafting can add volume to the cheeks, nasolabial folds, temples and lips. Fat can be removed from anywhere in the body but is typically harvested from the abdomen or thighs.

Once the fat is removed, it is purified through a filter or centrifuge before injecting. Your surgeon will likely overfill the area because approximately 20%-50% of the fat is eventually reabsorbed throughout recovery. Patients have noticed ongoing improvements in skin tone, pore size and overall appearance for several years following surgery, with the results lasting a lifetime.

Fat grafting is perfect for those who have lost facial volume typically due to aging. If you are experiencing overall droopiness of the face, a tired look, or hollowing of your cheeks, facial fat grafting can help create a natural and beautiful look. You are an ideal candidate so long as you are in good health and have realistic expectations for your surgical results.

Your results will develop over the course of 6-12 months, so being aware of and prepared for the entire recovery process is essential when evaluating the results of your surgery.

You will see the final results of your facial fat grafting procedure between 6-12 months after your operation. Since fat grafting is often combined with other surgeries, downtime and recovery may vary. In terms of just fat transfer to the face, pain and discomfort are minimal. You can expect to be back up and walking around just a few days after surgery. You will have some activity restrictions that will be lifted throughout your 4 weeks of recovery.

You can return to work after about a week so long as you are able to follow your instructed restrictions.

The processes are similar in that both treatments include adding volume by means of injection. In general, dermal fillers require less downtime, and they last about 8-12 months depending on your metabolism and the exact product. Fat grafting is a permanent solution to volume loss in the face.

Since liposuction is involved, the cost of facial fat grafting varies, because the amount of fat being removed can impact the cost. Typically, basic facial fat transfer ranges between $4,000-$5,000. You will receive an exact quote from your surgical team based on your custom plan, and they will review financing options during your first consultation.

Fat grafting is permanent. You will see your full results between 6 months to a year after your surgery. During this time, 25%-50% of the fat that was injected into the face will naturally reabsorb into your body. If you lose weight, the fat added to the face isn’t as susceptible to disappearance, although it is still possible. Fat grafting does not prevent continued aging. It is common for patients to get touch-ups of facial fat grafting.

Facial fat grafting is a great addition to other surgeries like facelifts and eyelid lifts, as well as it being a transformative procedure all on its own. Through fat grafting, you can address two areas at once — the area where fat is being removed and the area that is going to receive the volume from that fat. Patients appreciate the ease of the procedure and recovery.

Because this surgical procedure is considered permanent, the majority of the work will have been done for you when it comes to restoring volume. However, other signs of aging may continue to persist. To combat these concerns, we have an array of treatments to protect your skin and even improve its current appearance.

These solutions typically include, but are not limited to:
