Facial Fat Grafting at South Coast Plastic Surgery
Are you starting to lose significant facial volume – and want to get it back? Tired of fillers and want something “natural” and that will last longer? Then you might be a good candidate for Facial Fat Grafting at South Coast Plastic Surgery in Ladera, CA!
What is Facial Fat Grafting?
Facial fat grafting is a cosmetic procedure that uses your body’s own fat to create facial volume in areas where fat loss has occurred, like the cheeks or underneath the eyes or the temples. Facial fat grafting is performed in two parts using liposuction and fat injection. This popular procedure is an excellent treatment option for patients who have lost significant facial volume and may not want fillers or have “filler fatigue”. Some patients prefer facial fat grafting because it’s their own tissue.
How Does It Work?
Facial fat grafting begins with liposuction, where your fat will be harvested from a common grafting area like the stomach or thighs. Once the fat is cleansed, it’s prepared for injection into key facial areas to create the most realistic results possible. Typical treatment areas include the cheeks, underneath the eyes, at the forehead temples, and more. It can also be used in men to contour the jawline. Facial fat grafting is customized to each patient, making it a great option for individuals who want the most natural results possible.
Am I a Good Candidate For Facial Fat Grafting?
You’re a good candidate for facial fat grafting if you’ve lost facial volume and don’t want fillers. All candidates need to be healthy nonsmoking individuals who have realistic expectations for this procedure.

What Results Will I See?*
Results are visible right away and include more youthful facial contours. Many patients report better-looking skin and improvement in texture and pigment issues. Results can last for years because it’s your own tissue, depending on the patient and changes in your weight.
What is the Recovery Like?*
There’s little downtime with the facial fat grafting process; some patients may need to take a day or two off from work to recover after minor liposuction surgery. This procedure can be done under local anesthesia in the office or under a general anesthetic depending on your comfort and health. Patients should avoid excessive workouts in the first week after facial fat grafting, as higher body temperatures could cause fat to shift to other areas of the face. You should be at your ideal body weight before this procedure is done.
