WHAT IS a Facial Fat TRANSFER?
Nowadays, there are plenty of options that restore the fullness and contours of your face, but fat grafting to the face is growing in popularity since it provides natural improvements and lasting benefits. Volume loss, often due to aging, tends to be most noticeable in the areas around the cheeks, eyes, and jawline. Fat grafting to the face with advanced BeautiFill® technology is used to reduce some of the more common signs of aging, and it increases plumpness by smoothing lines, wrinkles, and folds throughout your face with your own fat. By taking unwanted fat from your body, Dr. Anam Tharoo in Carrollton, TX can carefully apply the purified fat into the desired areas of your face for lasting, beautiful outcomes. To find out more about autologous fat transfer to the face, contact MedSuite at Castle Hills to schedule an appointment with Dr. Tharoo.
What are the benefits of a facial fat transfer?
Volume loss as you age is normal, but as the volume in your face diminishes, wrinkles and lines can become more pronounced. Many individuals decide to pursue facial fat transfer as a means to fill in hollow areas and lines that make them feel self-conscious. At the same time, you can also remove undesirable fat pockets from elsewhere on your body to create the look you want. This versatile approach can provide patients with a more youthful appearance overall. Dr. Tharoo has helped countless patients turn back the hands of time by using their own body's natural tissue.
Who is a candidate for facial fat transfer?
Candidates for facial fat grafting desire fuller and refreshed features through a more natural means of treatment. It's often chosen by patients who are uninterested in alternative procedures like dermal fillers that contain foreign substances and need to be re-administered frequently to maintain the desired outcomes. Ideal candidates for a fat transfer are in good health and have realistic goals for their results. Optimal results occur in individuals who have a good amount of elasticity in the skin. Dr. Tharoo can perform a quick skin assessment to determine your candidacy.
How is a facial fat transfer performed?
A facial fat transfer is a quick and relatively easy procedure performed in our office. Dr. Tharoo begins with a local anesthetic — so patients stay comfortable and relaxed throughout the process. We then use advanced laser technology to remove high-quality tissue from the extraction area. The fat is purified and transferred to the desired regions of your face. Patients are able to return home that same day and recover quickly. The great news is that BeautiFill results are long-lasting, making it a popular choice for those looking to enhance their unique features.

facial fat transfer faq
Should I get a dermal filler or fat transfer?
Either a facial fat transfer or a dermal filler (for example, Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®) may correct the visibility of lines and wrinkles, as well as restore volume to your face. While fillers can give you wonderful results, a fat transfer typically looks more natural and lasts longer. If you need help deciding how much fat you want to add and where, Dr. Tharoo may recommend using dermal fillers. As soon as you've decided what you like, Dr. Tharoo will schedule a fat graft to your face for results that last years instead of months.
Can facial fat grafting be combined with another procedure?
A fat transfer to the face can be combined with another procedure, such as BOTOX® (a wrinkle relaxer) or a facial treatment. Facial fat grafting is also a popular treatment to enhance facial surgery. A fat transfer can increase volume that helps to improve the balance and proportion of your face during a facelift, chin implant, or cheek implant. Talk to Dr. Tharoo in your consultation about all your needs and wants so she can develop a plan with nonsurgical and surgical treatments that reach all of your goals.
How long does facial fat grafting take?
How long it takes to complete your facial fat graft will vary, depending on how much fat is being removed, plus the volume required to attain the desired result. Once your plan is developed in your consultation, Dr. Tharoo will go over what you can expect, like the time it will take for liposuction, fat preparation, and grafting. Dr. Tharoo takes her time to carefully place even layers of fat with innovative techniques so your outcomes look natural.
Which areas of the face can be improved with fat grafting?
Facial fat grafting may be used in a number of areas to increase volume or decrease lines. A fat transfer is great to augment or enhance the mid-face so that the area looks fuller and lifted without surgery. Additionally, fat can also be used to add volume to your upper and/or lower lips. You may also consider a fat transfer to fill the hollow or sunken areas under your eyes. A fat transfer to your face can also treat acne scars and static wrinkles, like brow furrows and marionette lines. Dr. Tharoo will develop your custom treatment plan to address one or more areas of your face based on your needs and aesthetic goals.
