What Is Facial Fat Transfer?
Facial fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, is a surgical procedure that enhances facial volume and improves overall facial appearance. Dr. Ladner often combines it with facelift and eyelid surgery for more noticeable rejuvenation.
Good candidates for facial fat transfer are typically seeking facial rejuvenation, enhanced volume, or correction of facial asymmetry. Ideally, candidates should have sufficient excess fat in donor areas to enable the fat grafting procedure.
How Is Facial Fat Transfer Performed?
Fat transfer involves a 3-step process. It begins with liposuction to collect excess fat from a donor area, such as the abdomen, thighs, or hips. Dr. Ladner then uses an advanced nano-fat purifying system to prepare the harvested fat for transfer.
Next, Dr. Ladner uses a small cannula or syringe to meticulously place the purified fat into targeted facial areas requiring augmentation or rejuvenation. This precision ensures a smooth and natural-looking outcome.
What To Expect During Recovery From Facial Fat Transfer
After the procedure, patients may experience some initial mild swelling, bruising, or discomfort at the injection site, which typically resolves within 7 to 10 days. Over time, the transferred fat establishes a blood supply and integrates with the surrounding tissues, resulting in long-lasting and natural-looking results.
Swelling and bruising at the liposuction site may linger longer, generally taking 2 to 3 weeks to resolve fully. Dr. Ladner may place a bandage or compression garment over the liposuction site to inhibit swelling and fluid accumulation.
