Providing Youthful, Natural Results for Facial Contouring

Facial fat grafting is a minimally-invasive procedure that can restore natural, youthful contours to the face without surgery. This procedure can also correct facial imperfections such as acne scars. Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS is a board-certified plastic surgeon, offering his years of experience performing facial rejuvenation through facial fat grafting to patients in Newport Beach and throughout Orange County.

Am I a Good Candidate for Facial Fat Grafting?

It is essential for facial fat grafting patients to possess good overall physical and psychological health. During your consultation with Dr. Wirth, you will be able to discuss your cosmetic goals and he will be able to determine if facial fat grafting is right for you.

A variety of facial contouring treatments can be carried out with facial fat grafting. You may be a potential candidate if you have:

  • Recessed scars
  • Thin lips
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Laugh lines
  • Facial folds and creases
  • Loss of volume

How Does Facial Fat Grafting Work?

Our Newport Beach facial fat grafting is an outpatient procedure that involves both a donor site (where the fat is removed) and a treatment site (where the fat is being transferred). Both areas will be anesthetized with a local anesthetic prior to your procedure to eliminate discomfort, at which point Dr. Wirth will use a small needle to remove fat from the donor site. Usually, the donor site will be the abdomen.

Once removed, the fat will then be cleansed and processed to remove excess fluids and damaged cells. It will then be re-injected into the treatment area using a smaller set of cannulas. This process may be repeated until the desired correction has been achieved. Fat can also be harvested through another procedure, such as liposuction or a tummy tuck, to obtain a larger amount of fat, which can then be used at a later date.

What Happens After Facial Fat Grafting?

Good news! There’s very little downtime following facial fat grafting, and you should be able to return home within a couple hours of your procedure. It is common to experience some swelling, bruising, or redness for the first several days, and you’ll be completely back to normal within six weeks of your procedure. If the fat grafting is successful, results can last for years, with follow-up procedures sometimes recommended or required.

Fat has a tendency to be reabsorbed into the body following facial fat grafting, with anywhere from 10% to 90% percent potentially being absorbed by the body. Typically, 50% to 60% of the fat stays each time, which may require more than a single treatment for long-lasting results. If you do require additional treatment, you’ll need to wait at least three months after your initial treatment, to allow your swelling to completely resolve and give your blood vessels a chance to grow and support additional fat grafts.
