Facial Fat Grafting BEVERLY HILLS / LOS ANGELES
Facial fat grafting is an innovative facial rejuvenation method that can help you improve 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 Facelift in order to achieve enhanced results.

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. 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.
Your Facial Fat Grafting Procedure
Individual results may vary.
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.
Why Choose Dr. Ellenbogen?
The Artistic Touch
“I started fat grafting and was the first to present it in the American literature and at a plastic surgical convention. I also was the first to use it in conjunction with a facelift and publish it in the Aesthetic Plastic Surgeon Journal. As a trained portrait artist, I can actually create faces now that look ten years younger but, more importantly, realistic-looking, fast healing, and an almost pain-free procedure without bandages. My statistics show excellent longevity of the fat and the facial procedure with a negligible re-do rate over the years.”
