What is Facial Fat Transfer?
When it comes to reducing fine lines and wrinkles around the face, many of our patients don’t wish to use man-made fillers and injectables. This is where Dr. Breister Ghosh and her team step in with facial fat transfer. Facial fat transfer or facial fat grafting is a surgical cosmetic procedure that involves performing gentle liposuction on the abdomen to harvest fat before it is purified and injected into areas of the face that show unwanted signs of aging. Unlike fillers that dissolve over time, facial fat transfer can be a long-lasting natural filler that restores volume in the cheeks, lips, chin, and more for years to come. Dr. Breister Ghosh’s years of extensive training and expertise allow our patients to rest assured that their facial fat transfer will result in a natural, youthful-looking complexion.

How is Facial Fat Transfer Performed?
Your facial fat transfer will be performed by Dr. Breister Ghosh in an accredited outpatient surgical center. Dr. Breister Ghosh will begin by performing gentle liposuction on either the abdomen or hips. The harvested fat from your donor site will then be purified before being placed into a syringe and strategically injected into the face. The entire surgical procedure may take up to two to three hours to complete. Facial fat transfer is often combined with a lower face and neck lift.
What Can I Expect After My Facial Fat Transfer?
Because your facial fat transfer is a minimally invasive procedure, there is no extensive downtime or recovery period required with this procedure. Mild swelling, tenderness, and bruising around the donor site and injection sites are normal and typically resolve with a few days of treatment. Dr. Bresiter Ghosh and her team will provide you with detailed post-operative care instructions prior to your facial fat transfer procedure to ensure you have a safe and quick recovery. Patients should talk with Dr. Breister Ghosh about the physical demands of their job, but should usually plan for approximately one to two days off work.
