Fat Transfer to the Face Dallas


If you’re like most women, as you get older you notice that parts of your face appear more sunken and not as full as they were when you were younger. You may have noticed some areas sagging. The reason is that you lose volume in your mid face areas as you age, which results in this sunken look. This is due to a loss of fat volume in the face. One method used to rejuvenate this area and replenish the fat is with the use of fat grafting.



Liposuction first to harvest the fat; then grafting of fat to the face

With fat grafting, we perform liposuction in an area of your body that has some fat, which harvests the fat. We process the fat and then reinject it back into you face in strategic areas to replace the lost fat. The result is a fuller, refreshed, more youthful look to your face. In addition, with volume restoration, a certain amount of lifting of the skin occurs too.



3-D Fat Transfer plus PRP

This three dimensional approach of transplanting your live fat cells to another part is called fat transfer. To improve the results, we can also use your own growth factors to stimulate the production of the capillaries into this fat and keep it alive. These growth factors are found in your blood, particularly the platelet rich plasma part of your blood. Mixed with your fat, your facial rejuvenation is enhanced. PRP also helps your skin to heal after a CO2 laser resurfacing is performed.

Fat grafting can be an Awake Procedure

Fat transfer to the face can be performed completely under local anesthesia. Some people also like to have mild sedation with this, and this option is also available. We tell all our patients that fat grafting is very unpredictable and you almost always need a second transfer procedure to be performed to enhance the fat more. The result, however, is a beautifully restored three dimensional architect of your face.



Remarkable Results of Fat Grafting and CO2 Laser Resurfacing

For example, check out the before and after photos of this 86 year old woman. She had the sunken appearance of her face, especially on the left cheek area where she had a prior scar and the fat went away in that area over time. You can see the fullness that resulted from the fat depositing within the scar. We grafted fat into the scar and the other sunken areas of her face, added PRP to it to stimulate the growth of the tissues, did laser resurfacing to decrease pigmentation and wrinkles, and helped stimulate her now younger looking positive and happy attitude.
