The Facial Fat Transfer is a cosmetic procedure that is performed to rejuvenate the appearance of the face. In a facial fat transfer procedure fat is taken from another area of the patient’s body (most commonly the thighs), processed for refinement, and injected into the desired area of the face. The fat is used to fill in areas that are showing signs of aging due to a loss of volume. The sunken in or hollowed out appearance in the cheeks can make an otherwise healthy person look gaunt. Young patients may also have early volume loss and choose the facial fat transpire to create a more desirable cheek contour or to create a more ideal facial symmetry.

Using the patient’s own fat to create the desired results has many benefits. If you are interested in learning more about the facial fat transfer procedure and recovery process, and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Chiu-Collins today.
