During the natural aging process, we tend to lose volume in our faces. This loss of volume contributes to a less youthful appearance. Volume replacement with your own fat can help counteract this process and restore a more youthful appearance. Facial fat grafting is a minimally invasive option for full facial rejuvenation. In some patients, it can act as substitute for a traditional facelift surgery.
Facial fat grafting begins by gently harvesting fat from an area on the body such as the abdomen, hips, flanks, or thighs. For facial fat grafting, Dr. Pirani believes that this must be done with the most atraumatic technique possible in order to maximize fat survival. The harvested fat is then centrifuged and only the finest fat cells and growth factors are used for facial fat grafting.
Dr. Pirani uses extremely fine cannulas to inject the fat into the areas of concern. This is done with a very delicate and meticulous technique in order to maximize fat survival.
The beauty of facial fat grafting is that in conjunction with restoring volume to the face, Dr. Pirani can harvest fat from an area on your body with relative excess fat. Many patients appreciate being able to combine the dual benefits of a liposuction procedure to their abdomen, hips, or thighs with facial volume restoration.
If you are concerned about any of the following, then you may be a candidate for facial fat grafting:
You may experience a small amount of swelling and/or bruising for a few days to weeks. Many individuals go back to work within a few days after their facial fat grafting procedure. If you do experience some bruising, it can almost always be concealed with makeup.
There is a large amount of information to review during a facial fat grafting consultation. Dr. Pirani will usually spend an hour with you during this initial consultation. He will go over risks and complications and give you an idea of what you should expect in terms of results and recovery.
Dr. Pirani’s goal is to educate you so that you fully understand your customized treatment plan.
