About Fat Injections
Overtime, with aging, volume is lost in the face resulting in a sunken or gaunt appearance. If you have considered undergoing a facial rejuvenation procedure but don’t think you’re ready for a face lift or other form of facial cosmetic surgery, Fat transfer injections could be the answer.
By adding volume to the face with fat grafting, fullness is restored leaving patients looking more youthful and refreshed. There is also some evidence to suggest that fat grafting may actually improve the quality of the overlying skin.
The Fat Injections Advantage
In today’s cosmetic world, fat grafting not only addresses one’s facial and body proportions, but can also improve the surrounding tissues. This injection method of facial fat sculpting, also called microlipoinjection, can restore attractive contours to your cheeks, chin, and under-eye area, and add volume to your lips.
There are three different types of fat grafting techniques that can be used to transfer fat around your body. Each one has its own use and benefits.
Structural Fat Grafting: This is when large fat particles are taken and used to replace significant loss of volume in areas of the body such as the butt, breast, etc. Irregularities can occur after undergoing a breast or butt augmentation with implants. When the shape of a breast or butt needs optimizing, fat grafting can be used.
Micro Fat Grafting: This is when smaller fat particles are taken and used to correct fine lines on the face. It works similar to a dermal filler in that it corrects wrinkles, creases, etc. Another factor that sets a micro fat grafting apart from other dermal fillers is the length of time that the volume enhancement lasts. Generally, the effects of fat injection can last years and in some cases, the effects last indefinitely.
Nano Stem Serum: This is when a fat serum has been spun down in a centrifuge to a high concentration of stem cells. This serum of stem cells is used to improve the overlying skin’s appearance, texture, and quality. The effect is not immediate, but progressive, occurring over a 2 months’ period.
Fat Injections Procedure
A fat transfer procedure can usually be performed as an outpatient procedure at the cosmetic center of your surgeon.
Step 1) Fat Removal
The fat transfer procedure begins with liposuction to remove some excess fat from the donor site, which could be the abdomen, buttocks, hips, "saddle bags," thighs, or even jowls. In order to collect as many undamaged fat cells as possible, only very-low-suction liposuction is used. These fat cells are removed from the donor site with a small-gauge hypodermic needle or a special cannula that is designed to limit damage to the fat cells.
Step 2) Isolating Fat Cells
Once an adequate amount of fat has been collected, it is spun at a very high speed in a centrifuge to separate the fat cells from the liquid that is also removed by the liposuction. The damaged fat cells are removed. Only whole, undamaged, and cleansed fat cells are then used for the fat transfer.
Step 3) Re-Injection of the Fat
The fat transfer procedure is completed by injecting the fat cells into the target site(s) on your face. At this point, your doctor will have already identified the site for each fat injection, with the intent to correct imperfections or create a new contour. U sing a separate hypodermic syringe, the doctor will inject the fat cells at the depth needed to achieve the desired fat transfer results.
Common areas for fat grafting include:
- Sunken cheeks
- Hollow temples
- Tear troughs
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines (frown lines)
- Skin depressions
- Facial creases and wrinkles

Fat Injections FAQs
- Why should I choose fat injections over other dermal fillers?
Fat injections, which transfer the patient’s own tissue from an area of excess to an area in need of filling, have at least one major benefit over artificial dermal fillers: they have no chance of causing an allergic reaction. Anytime a substance from another organism is introduced into the body, which may perceive the material as a threat. Fat transfers avoid this problem, since the body will recognize the tissue at its own, even in its new location.
- What areas of the body is fat typically harvested from?
One of the benefits of fat transfer is that it can address two problems at once. The fat for the injections may be taken from any spot on the body that contains a concentration of excess fatty tissue. The patient and the doctor will work together to decide which areas of the body are eligible, and which the patient would most like to see reduced.
- Is the fat transfer procedure painful?
The pain from fat grafting should be minimal in almost all cases. Discomfort should be only short term and usually can be managed with oral pain medication. If you are concerned about the pain, you may discuss options for prescription medication to be taken after the fat injections.
- Are multiple fat injections needed to achieve desired results?
Though it depends on the extent of change the patient desires, multiple fat transfer injections are very often recommended by the cosmetic surgeon performing the procedure. Splitting the procedure up into multiple installments allows for more tissue to be transferred with less damage to both the donor and injection sites. Your doctor can go over the pros and cons of various treatment options with you in detail.
- How long will these results last?
Patients must understand that the results of fat injection procedure are not everlasting. Result may last for years, if you don’t loss much weight.
