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.

Facial Fat Grafting Reviews
"On 7/2/21 I had a lower body lift, muscle repair and fat transfer after significant weight loss done by Dr. Sawan. I am still in the healing process but very happy with my results thus far. This is my first plastic surgery experience and Dr. Sawan and his staff were awesome, made me feel comfortable and most importantly safe in their care."- S.P. / Facebook / Jul 19, 2021
"I had a tummy tuck, lipo, muscle repair and fat transfer done on 9/13/21. This was my first experience with any plastic surgery. I’m so glad I picked Dr Sawan. Himself and his staff have made me feel comfortable and extremely important from day one. I can’t thank him enough for working his magic to give me all the confidence I have now."- N.S. / Facebook / Jan 01, 2021
"Multiple +/-100lbs weight loss adventures, correcting saggy body bits - After multiple +/-100lbs weight loss adventures during the last 15 years, it was time to correct my overstretched and saggy body bits. I had 6 consults with various plastic surgeons, all recommended something a bit different than the other. Dr Sawan was straightforward with his recommendation, and I appreciated it. So, after much research, I chose Dr Sawan (he was recommended to me initially by a nurse that sees the work of several surgeons at Summit Medical Facility, so that gave an added boost of confidence in my choice). I had a lower body lift (360 tummy tuck), breast lift with augmentation (implants), Lipo, and fat transfer to the bum. I’m 12 days post op now. My incisions are perfectly straight, my tummy is flawless, my belly button is adorable, these tatas are perfection, and my butt is wrinkle-free and so plump! I was very reluctant to proceed with the fat transfer, but my goodness, I’m so glad I listened to the doc. My butt is my favorite thing!! Dr Sawan is a “to the point” kinda guy, just expect it. But he’s pretty dang funny when you least expect it. And he KNOWS what he’s doing. His YouTube videos were helpful for me as well. My recovery has been so much easier than is expected (I bought a Walker and all kinds of unnecessary stuff that I returned to Amazon already). I made dinner the last 3 nights, I’m doing household chores and helping the kids with homework. I quit my pain meds around day 5. Side note; Summit Medical Center is absolutely fantastic. My husband says it’s like staying at a hotel, lol. The nurses are beyond helpful. I’m completely over the moon with my decision to get the plastics!"- B. / RealSelf / May 01, 2022
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.
