Facial Fat Grafting
About Facial Fat Grafting
There are several options that restore the contours and fullness of your face, but facial fat grafting is growing in popularity because of its natural results and lasting benefits. Loss of volume, most commonly due to aging, tends to be more prominent around the eyes, jawlines, and cheeks. Facial fat grafting is used to decrease the most common signs of aging, and it restores plumpness by smoothing facial wrinkles and folds in your face through your natural fat. By taking excess fat from your body, Plastic surgeon Dr. Jason D. Johnson can artfully re-inject the fat into the needed areas of your face for beautiful, lasting results. With facial fat grafting, you not only get a more youthful facial appearance, but you also experience the improved contours of your body. To learn more about facial fat grafting, contact PHX Plastic Surgery in Phoenix, AZ area to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jason D. Johnson.

What to Expect with Facial Fat Grafting
After your facial fat transfer, your incisions will be closed and cleaned before you are sent to a recovery area. Dr. Johnson or a member of his team will apply dressings, compression garments, and monitor you until you can be safely sent home with a responsible adult. Before your surgery, Dr. Johnson will tell you what to expect during your recovery and how you can speed your healing. Follow-up appointments will need to be scheduled at PHX Plastic Surgery so Dr. Johnson can monitor your recovery and progress. Your recovery will vary based on how much fat was removed and transferred, but you should plan to take 1 – 2 weeks for your recovery. Initially, you may feel sore with bruising and swelling in the liposuction site(s) and your face. You may notice some improvements right away in your face, but it will take several weeks before you will be able to see your final results. A small amount of fat may be reabsorbed by your body, but with proper care, your results should last for many years.
Fat transfer procedures are a brilliant way to increase volume, smooth out lines, and accentuate your beautiful profile.
