Facial Fat Grafting on Long Island
Your face is one of the strongest impressions that you can make on the world. Day after day, it is the first thing you see in the mirror each morning, what you present to others on video chats and conference calls, and the way that people see you to gauge your emotions, confidence, and bearing.
If you want to improve the appearance you show the world, facial fat grafting can help. This procedure offers a natural and minimally invasive solution to delay aging as it reshapes your face and gives it a fuller more youthful appearance. Facial fat grafting can especially help when aging causes the areas around your eyes or cheekbones to hollow and shrink back. The results will make your face look and feel fuller, and bring an increased suppleness and radiance to the skin in the treated area. By incorporating cutting edge stem cell and biotechnology into the fat grafting process the color and texture of the skin will be materially improved. Patients with severe sun and smoking damage are amazed at the change in their skin.
How it Works
Facial fat grafting can bring dramatic results through a comprehensive and carefully managed multi-step process. The procedure works by gently removing fat from another part of your body—usually the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks—and cleaning it before skillfully injecting it into the area of your face that you want to enhance. Injections are done carefully and professionally, and we have the expertise to make the process as comfortable and minimally invasive as possible.
Using biotechnology, we prepare your face to receive the maximum benefit from the fat grafting procedure.
Our team will be there with you throughout the procedure, from planning to surgery day, and then through post-op and recovery. We can talk with you about the best ways to prepare for the procedure so that results are as long-lasting as they can be. We’ll also help you to minimize recovery so that any swelling recedes quickly, and you can enjoy the benefits of surgery as soon as possible.
If you think facial fat grafting may be right for you, call us for an initial consultation so that we can talk about what you’re looking for. During this consultation, our team will discuss with you the specifics of the procedure and the location from which you’d like to remove fat. Each patient has unique responses to the procedure, and our process decisions will be based on your body and what will bring you the best result.
Benefits of Facial Fat Grafting
Sometimes fat grafting can be considered as a step up from facial fillers. Some of the benefits of facial fat grafting are its versatility, its long-lasting effects, and its compatibility. In addition, the stem cell technology we incorporate prior to the fat grafting procedure enhances the skin as well.
Fat grafting can be used on various parts of your face to improve contour and overall symmetry. Some of the more common reasons our patients have come to us for fat grafting surgery include:
- Thin, gaunt or disproportionately long face due to aging
- Mid-face flatness
- Loss of chin and cheek contours
- Asymmetrical face that could benefit from more fullness or evenness
- Hollowing under the eyes
- Poor skin tone and texture from aging, sun exposure or smoking.
- Deep wrinkles, loss of lip fullness.
We have helped many of our patients see dramatic results from fat grafting with individualized approaches that are based on the needs of their bodies. No two approaches are the same with this surgery, but results help patients look more youthful, radiant, and confident.
