Restoring facial volume loss with fat grafting

As we age, time takes its toll on our features and our skin, and we begin to notice wrinkles, fine lines, creases and folds creep into our complexions. Yet there is another age-related flaw that is equally devastating, although it may not be immediately obvious to our eyes.

This is the loss of facial volume, or fat reserves, that create the plump, glowing contours of youth. Once this integral facial fat begins to dwindle, we may see a hollowed look in the cheeks and temples as well as around the eyes, and we may notice a dull, tired aesthetic has replaced our once vibrant countenance.

If you have volume loss in the cheeks and around the face, Dr. Kiran Gill's fat grafting is an excellent option. Facial fat grafting is an option for many women and men who want to achieve a restored, fuller, and more youthful-looking face. Dr. Gill uses special harvesting and grafting techniques to restore facial volume with very natural-looking results.

Benefits of Fat Grafting

Restoring the face with your own fat instead of synthetic and filler ingredients can produce natural-looking results. Many patients turn to fat grafting as an anti-aging measure because increasing facial volume helps maintain a plump, youthful-looking face.

If you have lost a significant amount of weight recently or notice your face is looking longer and thinner, Dr. Gill's facial fat grafting can help to create a rounder or more heart-shaped face. Fat grafting is a minimally invasive procedure and, like fillers, only involves a series of injections into the face instead of surgery.

Some common advantages of facial fat grafting include…

  • Trims and sculpts the donor areas
  • Very low risk of allergic reaction
  • Natural-looking outcome
  • Long-lasting results
  • Virtually no downtime required
  • Improves self-confidence in one’s image
  • Creates a more youthful aesthetic overall
  • Excellent alternative to facial fillers and injectables

Fat grafting is effective in treating:

  • Temples
  • Cheeks
  • Lips
  • Breasts
  • Buttocks
  • Hands
  • Calves
  • Facial lines and folds
  • Facial scarring
  • Facial asymmetry

Who are the best candidates for fat grafting?

You may be a good candidate for Dr. Gill's fat grafting if you notice your face is starting to become thinner or is starting to sag. If you want to restore some of the fullness in your cheeks and roundness of your facial profile, transferring fat cells from another part of the body to the face can help create a more youthful-looking face.

If you want to ward off some of the signs of aging and retain your youthful looks, fat transplants can help you achieve natural-looking results by elevating sagging tissues.

Undergoing facial fat grafting

Fat grafting is a two-part procedure that involves removing small amounts of fat from the abdomen, thighs, or other parts of the body using a very small cannula.

The fat is then injected into the facial tissues using a microdroplet technique. This ensures the blood supply remains intact and the fat cells do not die once injected. It’s important to keep in mind that the primary goal of fat grafting is to restore volume loss without changing your natural face shape or facial profile.
