Facial Fat Grafting

Home » Face » Facial Fat Grafting

Facial fat grafting offered by Dr. Z, is a transformative procedure that utilizes a patient’s own fat to enhance the contours of the face, chin, and cheeks. It treats age-related volume loss, and hollow cheeks and provides natural-looking rejuvenation, benefiting individuals seeking facial enhancement and restoration.

Restore Facial Volume &
Elevate Natural Contours

Facial fat grafting is a cutting-edge procedure designed to restore facial volume and elevate natural contours. It involves two main steps: harvesting fat from donor areas like the abdomen or thighs through liposuction and injecting it into targeted facial regions that have lost volume over time. This technique addresses age-related volume loss, hollow cheeks, and sagging skin, providing a natural-looking rejuvenation that lasts longer than temporary fillers. By utilizing the patient’s own fat, facial fat grafting achieves excellent results with minimal risk of allergic reactions or rejection.
