Facial fat grafting is an innovative facial rejuvenation method that can help you reverse the signs of aging and take years off of your appearance. It is a great way to restore lost facial volume caused by the aging process.
Dr. Richard Ellenbogen can perform facial fat grafting as a stand-alone procedure if you prefer a more minimally invasive facial rejuvenating option. However, he often recommends fat grafting in conjunction with a face lift in order to achieve enhanced results.
The best way to determine whether facial fat grafting is the right procedure to address your needs is to speak with Dr. Ellenbogen in person. Please call 310-276-3183 today to schedule a consultation at our Beverly Hills plastic surgery office.
Am I a Candidate for Facial Fat Grafting?
Ideal facial fat grafting candidates have a loss of facial volume in the cheeks , around the lips, or below the eyes. It is also effective for individuals experiencing deep wrinkles, nasolabial folds, or sunken eyes.
In general, facial fat grafting is an excellent option for patients who are looking to correct:
- Thin or gaunt face
- Long face
- Bottom-heavy or jowly face
- Chubby face
- Midface flatness
- Asymmetrical face
Often, Dr. Ellenbogen will perform facial fat grafting along with rhinoplasty . This allows him to achieve better results by shaping the face to match the nose.
Your Facial Fat Grafting Procedure
Your facial fat grafting procedure uses minimally invasive methods and requires almost no downtime. During your procedure, Dr. Ellenbogen will perform liposuction to remove fat from a donor site such as the back or love handles. The fat will then be purified to ensure that only undamaged fat cells are used for your grafting procedure. The purified fat cells are injected deep within the structures of the face to accentuate the cheekbones, midface, lips, cheeks, chin, and jawline.
By using this minimally invasive technique, your face can be reshaped without the prolonged downtime associated with more invasive procedures. In addition, you also achieve body contouring benefits since the donor region will be sculpted when fat is initially removed.
