What are Fat Injections?
Aging, significant weight loss and environmental factors can all contribute to a loss of facial volume over time. Fat injections can improve facial contours, restoring youthful fullness, and vitality to the face.
Fat is removed from donor sites, including the abdomen, hips, or buttocks, and harvested for injection to the face. Your surgeon will then strategically inject the fat into your face, giving you a fuller, more youthful appearance. This procedure can be done alone or in conjunction with other procedures, like a facelift.
Our highly skilled plastic surgeons will take the time to carefully restore your facial contours, enhancing your natural beauty. Fat injections will give you a beautiful, youthful appearance.
What are the Benefits?
After receiving fat injections to the face at Polyclinic Plastic Surgery in Seattle, you can expect:
- Plumped, hydrated skin
- A reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
- Improved, rejuvenated facial contours
- Long-lasting results
- Heightened self-confidence
- Natural results
Who is the Ideal Candidate?
Patients seeking fat injections to the face typically experience a “sunken in” appearance or overall loss in facial volume. Ideal candidates will be of stable weight, will not have any severe medical issues, and are non-smokers. A good candidate must also have enough donor fat to use for the procedure.
It is equally important for candidates to have realistic expectations for the procedure.
What Can I Expect from Recovery?
After removal of the donor fat, soreness is to be expected. Once the fat has been injected into the face, you will likely experience swelling and bruising. Pain medication and ice can help ease discomfort. The swelling will slowly begin to decrease after a few days, and your new facial contours will begin to appear. Your surgeon will check on you at follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing and beautiful results.
