What Is Facial Fat Grafting?
Facial fat grafting is rising in popularity as a way to rejuvenate contours and volume in the face since it provides natural-looking results and long-lasting benefits. Lost volume, most commonly caused by aging, tends to be more pronounced around the eyes, jawlines, and cheeks. Autologous fat transfer to the face is used to reduce the more typical signs of aging and rebuild fullness in the face by smoothing facial wrinkles and folds using your own fatty tissue. By removing extra fat from areas of your body, plastic surgeon Dr. Kamal Sawan can skillfully place purified fat into the desired sections of your face for beautiful, long-lasting results. With facial fat grafting, you don't just see a refreshed facial appearance, you also improve your body. To learn more about facial fat grafting, contact Sawan Surgical Aesthetics in Oklahoma City, OK to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sawan.

"Dr. Sawan is a miracle worker. Had eye surgery, upper and lower kids, and now look much better, and healthier. Not surgeries that look obvious that you had eye lift surgery. I asked him for a natural and healthy look. I’m “very” pleased, and his staff is wonderful. Highly recommend you see him before choosing anyone else."- J.T. / Office Visit / Sep 25, 2020
Can I Get Facial Fat Grafting?
Facial fat grafting can help you add volume to your face that looks natural. By transferring fat to your face, you can fill in wrinkles, such as smile lines, Crow's feet, and laugh lines. Transferred fat may also be used to improve the appearance of pitted areas and scars, or add volume to your cheeks and lips for a rejuvenated appearance. With results similar to an injectable wrinkle filler, such as Restylane or JUVÉDERM, a fat transfer is a good option if you'd like longer-lasting results. In order to have a successful fat grafting experience, you need to have enough extra fat on your body to fulfill your goals. To find out if you qualify for facial fat grafting, contact our Edmond, OK office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sawan.
How Does Facial Fat Grafting Work?
Facial fat transfer is a two-step surgery that includes liposuction and injection. Since such a small amount of fat is needed, Dr. Sawan usually uses local anesthesia. To start, plastic surgeon Dr. Sawan will perform liposuction to remove fat, which will likely come from your hips, flanks, or abdomen. As soon as the fat is removed, it will be purified and then prepared for injection. Dr. Sawan uses different techniques and injection angles to provide high immersion rates into your skin, as well as to create symmetry and your desired look. According to your treatment plan, fat will be grafted to your cheeks, lips, and/or under your eyes to create volume, as well as to correct lines and facial pits.
What Can I Expect After My Facial Fat Grafting Treatment?
Following your fat graft, your liposuction incisions will be sutured and cleaned, then you will be sent to recovery. Dr. Sawan or someone on his team will apply wound coverings and monitor you until you are ready to be sent home with a responsible adult. Prior to your surgery, Dr. Sawan will let you know what will happen after the procedure and ways you are able to speed your healing. Follow-up appointments need to be made at our Edmond, OK office so Dr. Sawan can monitor your healing and results. Your recovery process will depend on how much fat is removed and transferred, but you should plan to spend a couple of weeks resting and recovering. Initially, you may feel uncomfortable and have bruising and swelling at the liposuction site(s) and your face. You might see a little improvement right away; however, it is going to take several weeks until you'll be able to see your final outcomes. It's likely that a small amount of fat might be reabsorbed, but your improvements can last for many years with proper maintenance.
