Facial Fat Grafting
If you want to add more volume or contour to your face, explore the benefits of facial fat grafting in Ormond Beach. Your facial structure can change when the effects of aging set in. Harsh wrinkles may form, and areas may become hollow. Facial rejuvenation through fat grafting restores a softer and more youthful profile by reversing facial volume loss.
What Is Facial Fat Grafting?
Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer or lipomodelling, makes use of excess fat from other parts of your body to add volume to your face. Donor areas may include your thighs, belly, or buttocks. Unwanted extra fat is harvested through gentle liposuction. The harvested fat will be carefully injected into your face to restore your youthful look.
Fat transfer achieves a more natural appearance and fills in grooves and hollowed facial regions effectively. It also helps smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. It is important you go to a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Ashley Lentz because the injections of fat need precision and strategic placement.
Am I a Good Candidate for Facial Fat Grafting?
If you start seeing hollows under your eyes, at your temples, or on your cheeks, facial fat grafting may be right for you. You may be an ideal candidate for facial fat grafting if you have deep lines and furrows you want to fill in. This minimally invasive procedure is also a good way to reshape and enhance the contours of your face.
It is best to be in good health if you’re interested in undergoing facial fat grafting. Realistic aesthetic goals are important to understand before you decide on this treatment.
* Individual results may vary.
During your facial fat transfer consultation with Dr. Lentz, an evaluation of your facial structure will be performed. Your medical history will be discussed, and for your safety, you will need to mention any underlying conditions, allergies, and medications being taken. To compare your progress, photographs will be taken for documentation purposes.
Dr. Lentz will discuss your expected outcome and formulate the best treatment approach to achieve that. You will be informed of the details of the procedure, including its benefits and any potential complications.
Your Facial Fat Grafting Procedure
Your facial fat grafting procedure starts with liposuction. Fat will be harvested from a predetermined part of your body though tiny incisions. The harvested fat will be processed so that only pure fatty tissue remains. This will be injected into the facial regions where volume is needed.
The whole process can take about an hour, depending on the amount of fat that needs to be transferred and the number of issues being addressed.
The Recovery Process
Facial fat transfer recovery time can vary from one patient to another. Expect some bruising and swelling on both the donor and treated areas. These, along with some tenderness, will gradually subside after a few days.
To minimize the swelling, apply a cold pack on the treated area in the first few hours after the procedure. You can go back to your normal routine a week after your treatment.
How Much Does a Facial Fat Grafting Treatment Cost?
The cost of facial fat grafting varies depending on each individual’s concerns and expected results. The price of your facial fat grafting treatment will be based on the extent of work done to achieve your desired outcome.
