What is Facial Fat Grafting?

Facial fat grafting, also known as facial fat injection or fat transfer, is a procedure used to restore volume loss and enhance facial contours. For this method, the patient’s own fat tissue is harvested from the abdomen or thighs and injected into the facial area to treat. With Fat Grafting we can fill in deep wrinkles, soften fine lines, and improve the appearance of sunken or hollow areas such as the cheeks or under the eyes. The transferred fat not only restores any lost volume, but also promotes collagen production, contributing to a younger and more vibrant skin.

Facial fat grafting provides long-lasting results and, since the patient’s own fat is used, the risk of rejection or allergic reaction is minimal. The procedure offers a safe and quick recovery process. It achieves natural and harmonious results while preserving the patient’s unique features.

How Does Facial Fat Grafting Work?

Facial Fat Grafting involves a multistep process. First, excess fat is harvested from a donor site,
typically the abdomen or thighs, using a gentle liposuction technique. The harvested fat is then
processed to purify it and separate the healthy fat cells. Finally, the purified fat cells are carefully
injected into specific areas of the face to enhance volume and contour.

During the procedure, Dr. Baygöl strategically places the fat cells to address the areas that need
treatment. The injected fat cells establish a new blood supply and integrate with the existing
tissues, resulting in long-lasting volume enhancement and a more youthful facial appearance.


Is Facial Fat Grafting a permanent solution?

While facial fat grafting can provide long-lasting results, it is important to note that not all the injected fat cells survive in their new location. Over time, a percentage of the transferred fat cells may be reabsorbed by the body. However, the remaining fat cells can establish a blood supply and become permanent. As the aging process naturally continues, and individual factors such as genetics and lifestyle habits can influence, but in many cases, the effects of facial fat grafting can last for several years.

Can Facial Fat Grafting be combined with other procedures?

Yes, Facial Fat Grafting can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures to enhance overall results. It is commonly performed alongside facelift surgery, eyelid surgery, or other facial procedures to address multiple concerns simultaneously. Dr. Baygöl will evaluate your specific needs and recommend a personalized treatment plan that may include a combination of procedures to achieve your desired outcome.
