Facial Fat Transfers

Fat under the skin helps create a firm, youthful face. It is common to lose facial fat as you get older, contributing to looser skin and changes in the facial structure. Hollows under the eyes, flatter cheeks, sunken temples and other signs of lost facial fat can make your face look older. At pēkomd® cosmetic surgery center, we offer facial fat transfers to restore a more youthful face at our clinic in Toledo, OH.

Fat grafting is an effective and natural face & neck option for replacing lost volume in the face. While dermal filler injections can add volume under the skin, the effects are temporary and may only last a few months. Fat transfers or injections use your own fat harvested from another area on the body to restore the contours on your face. The injections add the fat under the skin with many of the fat cells surviving for years to come.

To harvest the fat for grafting, liposuction is first performed. The fat can be removed from the abdomen, thighs, flanks or any area with excess fat. Once the fat is removed, it is purified through a centrifuge before it can be transferred or injected into the desired areas on the face.

Facial Fat Injections

Fat injections can be used to add volume under the skin in many areas on the face. Fat can plump under frown lines, worry lines, smile lines and other wrinkles, creating a more youthful appearance. Some of the most common areas for facial fat grafting include:

  • Lip enhancement
  • Cheek augmentation
  • Under the eyes
  • Temples
  • Jawline

The facial fat transfer procedure does require some downtime due to the liposuction performed to harvest the fat. The fat injection areas may have some swelling or bruising, but there are no sutures or incisions to heal. The swelling will dissipate over the next week or longer, revealing your long-term results.

If you have lines, wrinkles or lost volume in your face, fat injections may be a lasting solution to improve your facial appearance. Dr. Peter Koltz at pēkomd® is a board certified plastic surgeon who can perform facial fat grafting to reshape your lips, cheeks and other facial areas.

I’m love Dr. Koltz. He’s performed a lower face lift in me and recently an abdominoplasty and 360 lipo. I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you to his wonderful staff too. These experiences have enhanced my life immensely.
