Facial Fat

Fat injections are made up of what is called autologous fat, or fat from your own body. Rather than inject dermal fillers or some other foreign substance that the body may react negatively to, your own fat is recognised as a familiar substance, therefore the risk of rejection is minimal. There are no issues with strange materials migrating to a part of the body where they shouldn’t be and causing problems such as compromising immunity. Fat injections are more stable than dermal fillers for effects that will last for many years. At Signature Clinic we strive to give you the most natural look.

About Facial Fat Transfer Surgery

The first step in a fat injection procedure is to collect fat from the donor areas. Small cuts are made in the skin and a thin tube is inserted – much like liposuction – to suck an appropriate amount of fat out. These incisions are then stitched and dressed. The withdrawn fat undergoes preparation at this point and is spun in a piece of equipment called the centrifuge, which separates the valuable fat cells from any other fluids or blood cells. The prepared fat cells are then injected into the areas where they are required using a needle and syringe. The needle leaves only tiny holes which do not generally require stitches.

Facial Fat Transfer FAQ

At what age can fat grafting be performed?2020-12-15T23:27:21+00:00

Fat grafting can be performed at any age to help correct deep acne scars or fix facial asymmetry. Its other applications – lip augmentation or cheek augmentation, filling in hollows in the face – are typically reserved for people in their 20s and up.

Are the results permanent?2020-12-15T23:27:46+00:00

There are many factors that determine how long fat grafting lasts. Your body naturally absorbs fat, so the surgeon must over-inject initially, and success rates can vary considerably. If you gain a considerable amount of weight after fat grafting, it may show up in the area that was treated.
