As we age, wrinkles and fine lines are not the only imperfections to affect our complexion. The loss of facial fat volume is also a significant factor in making us look older than we feel. Facial fat grafting in Charlotte NC can help to revive your appearance by using your own fat from unwanted areas and injecting it into depleted facial contours. The result is natural and radiant skin as well as amplified self-confidence.

What is facial fat transfer?

During facial fat transfer, fat cells are harvested from an area of the body such as the thighs, stomach, hips or lower back. They are then purified before being precisely injected into the face to help offset the hollowing effect that happens during the aging process. 

The fat transfer process has the dual benefit of slimming the donor area while creating plumper, more youthful facial contours. Depressions, indentations, scars, creases and folds can be beautifully reversed with facial fat transfer, leaving your complexion radiant and smooth.

Facial Fat Grafting in Charlotte NC

What are the benefits of facial fat transfer?

  • Fat reduction in the donor area
  • Enhanced facial contours
  • A youthful, supple glow to the skin
  • Safe and minimally invasive
  • Long-lasting results
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Natural-looking outcome

Who makes a good candidate?

For those who are seeking a longer-lasting solution to facial contouring than can be offered by dermal fillers and injectables, facial fat grafting is an excellent option. It is also a great choice for those who are not yet ready for a full surgical facelift. Younger clients who are just starting to notice age-related flaws will benefit from this subtle yet effective procedure and its highly natural-looking results. Fat grafting is also a wonderful choice for those concerned with scar revision. As with any cosmetic procedure, clients should be healthy non-smokers who are realistic in their expectations.

What will my recovery be like after treatment?

While recovery after facial fat grafting in Charlotte NC is minimal when compared to the downtime required for a facelift, you will still need to rest for about one week with a reduction in your normal activity. To help expedite your healing, you should avoid blood-thinning medications for at least 10 days. Your skin may feel tender and sore, but these side effects can be well managed with an ice pack or painkillers. Bruising and swelling will fade within 7-10 days.
