Facial Fat Transfer
Facial fat transfer is also called facial fat grafting, fat injection, volume restoration or micro-lipo injection. Essentially, it’s about removing excess fat from another part of your body and using it to fill irregularities, hollow areas or grooves on your face. Facial volume loss is an expected and normal part of the aging process. We can restore this volume loss with fillers and injectables or with facial fat grafting. Facial volume loss is typically more pronounced around the eyes, cheeks and jawline. This is where fat transfer can make the greatest difference in creating balanced rejuvenation. Fat grafting involves using only tiny amounts of fat, so it is not the same as liposuction or a full face lift. Ask Dr. Crichlow whether facial fat transfer may be right for you.
