Recapture the beauty of self-confidence with a brow lift by Dr. Emily Jiles

What’s the secret to a beautiful, more youthful looking appearance? A fuller and smoother face.  Aging is inevitable, but there are ways you can rejuvenate your look and keep wrinkles at bay. If you are starting to notice the effects of aging on your face, you may want to explore what a fat transfer to the face[¹] with Dr. Emily Jiles can do for you.

What is Facial Fat Grafting (Facial Fat Transfer)?

Fat transfer to the face, or facial fat grafting[²], is a surgical facial rejuvenation technique where liposuction is performed on the face to extract fat from one area and inject it into other areas of the face where it is needed. Through this procedure, the goal is to add volume, improving the overall appearance of your face. 

Five of the most common areas fat transfer to the face procedures are generally performed are:

  1. Crow’s Feet 
  2. Cheeks 
  3. Eyes
  4. Expression lines 
  5. Lips 

Although facial fat grafting is considered a permanent procedure. However, surgeon’s estimate that the retention rate of the injected fat could be around 60%. That means, in time, these fillers may naturally dissolve. If you’ve been shedding weight consistently after the procedure, these injections may dissolve much faster than usual.   

Why is Facial Fat Grafting Performed?

Volume repletion is the most common reason for performing fat transfer to the face. 

As we age, we lose some of the facial fat that plumps up our forehead, cheeks, and the areas around our eyes and mouth. As a result, we ended up with hollow areas under our eyes, flat-looking cheeks, and saggy skin with unwanted lines and creases. 

The fat injections in the face aim to eliminate these issues, giving you a youthful, refreshed look.
