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.

"I am so happy I chose Dr. Sawan for my breast reduction surgery. Two people recommended him to me which prompted my initial consultation. I knew he had an impressive career and expertise, but at that first meeting I found there to be an ease about him that made me trust him immediately. He was the surgeon for me. His staff is great, too. Knowledgeable, efficient and nice! You just know you’re in good hands. My whole experience from pre-surgery visits to follow-ups and the actual surgery itself has been so positive. Dr. Sawan listened and created exactly what I wanted. I’m super happy with my results. I highly recommend Sawan Surgical Aesthetics!"- B.R. / Google / Jul 12, 2020
"Let me tell you about Dr. Sawan. He took on my case after several other plastic surgeons either were too scared to operate on me due to a health condition I have or wouldn’t even see me until after I went through radiation. Dr Sawan not only saw me, he was confident he could not only perform the surgery but was sure I would be fine and heal easily. He and his office worked with and got insurance to cover things. His office staff was amazing to help us through the insurance chaos. Even through surgery delays due to Covid, his office stayed in touch with me and scheduled my surgery as soon as the surgery center was open. He was upbeat and encouraging on the day of my surgery knowing I was nervous due to my husband not being able to be with me. He took time to talk to him and explain everything to him and he was so sweet and gentle through my hospital stay. He sent all the removed tissue off to pathology and it all came back negative which resulted in me having NO RADIATION!!! 🎉🎉 I’ve healed perfectly, had no issues with my health condition and feel like I’ve been given a new lease on life! I have many amazing doctors on my cancer team but Dr Sawan has gone above and beyond to help us be informed and stay positive. Today I got an “Everything looks great” and a clearance to go back to go back to “whatever I want to do”. I highly recommend Dr. Kamal Sawan if you ever need a plastic surgeon. He’s the BEST!"- K.S. / Google / Jul 10, 2020
"After losing 100 pounds, I was left with lots of flab and extra skin. I had a 3D body lift. The surgery went smoothly With no complications at all! Dr Sawan was able to remove 16 pounds of superfluous skin and left me with perky breasts and tight abs. His work is AMAZING! I can’t even believe I am looking at myself when I walk by the mirror. I highly recommend Dr Sawan for any cosmetic procedure. He has a very helpful, kind staff and you will be treated with highest respect."- M.R. / Google / Jun 29, 2020
"I began my journey 9 years ago with weight loss surgery. I lost 128 pounds after weight loss surgery and within the last year I started working out in the gym, lifting weights. I wasn't seeing the results I thought I would see due to the fact that I had extra skin from being overweight previously. I went to see Dr. Sawan and talked to him. He gave me his recommendation and showed me pictures. He felt that I had very little fat and was actually toned from lifting, but my extra skin was getting in the way of my body showing the hard work I had put in. My surgery was May 14th. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Sawan. He did a fantastic job! The office staff were extremely kind, professional, and considerate. He let me ask every little question I had to ask and was very patient and caring. I look better than I have ever looked in my life. I'm excited to be back in the gym and enhance what Dr. Sawan has done for me."- K.S. / Google / Jun 11, 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.
