Standardized Steps for Successful Facial Fat Grafting

Tag Archives: Facial Rejuvenation

An experienced fat grafting plastic surgeon will understand the importance of using proven, standardized techniques for facial fat grafting in order to achieve optimal outcomes. If the surgeon manages to standardize the basic steps for harvesting, purifying, and injecting the fat grafts, the results can be more predictable and matching with the patient’s aesthetic goals. Some of the key steps that should be standardized in facial fat grafting are as follows:

  • As far as possible, the surgeon should opt for general anesthesia to perform the facial fat grafting procedure. This avoids the possibility of destruction of adipose derived stem cells due to local anesthetics containing lidocaine as well as risk to smooth blood supply that is important for grafting.
  • Fat removal should be performed using traditional liposuction techniques rather than laser or ultrasound based techniques. This will ensure better safety of fat cells that need to be harvested.
  • Fat harvesting and purification should be performed delicately, applying minimal pressure in order to preserve the integrity of fat cells.
  • Fat transfer using injections should be performed immediately so that the fat cells are not destroyed in absence of blood supply.
  • Outcomes can be more natural looking if the surgeon places fat micro-droplets in multiple layers of the face. More effective blood supply is ensured with this technique, and the longevity of fat cells is improved.
  • Frozen compressions in the treated area should be avoided because freezing temperatures may kill the harvested fat cells.
  • A large part of the post-op swelling will resolve quickly if the head of the bed is elevated for the first few days.
  • Fat-burning exercising should be avoided for the first few weeks following surgery so that the newly grafted fat cells are preserved.

Patients should choose a plastic surgeon with sufficient experience in facial fat grafting in order to achieve outstanding and salient aesthetic results.

In comparison to facial fillers and other non-invasive or minimally invasive aesthetic anti-aging treatments, facial fat grafting is a more effective and longer-lasting treatment by far. The key limitation of injectable filler treatments is that the results are not likely to last for more than a few months, or up to a year in most cases. At the same time, the outcomes may not be comprehensive or may fail to satisfy the patient’s aesthetic needs in an adequate manner.

Outstanding Results with Facial Fat Grafting

Facial fat grafting is a proven technique to produce more even, substantive and sustainable results. The procedure involves fat harvesting from a particular area of the body that has excess fat pockets and injecting it into the targeted areas of the face to replace lost volume. Results with facial fat grafting are not only deeper and longer lasting, but also aesthetically superior. The facial skin will achieve a regenerative, radiant effect with this technique.

This unique procedure involves transfer of living fat cells from one part of the body to another, which means greater sustainability of results. The living fat cells will continue to counter the aging process, and the patient’s face will usually continue to look better over time. These harvested fat cells are not merely a storehouse for fat, but are living hormone factories that will help regenerate the skin from inside out. The result is that the aging effects can actually be reversed with this technique.

Choosing the Right Donor Site

An experienced plastic surgeon will know the importance of choosing the right donor site in order to have the best possible impact of treatment. Donor fat cells from areas such as thighs, hips, abdomen and underarms are typically more reliable and resilient. These fats are more stubborn and will not be easily impact by weight fluctuations.
