Facial fat grafting

Facial fat grafting is one of the most effective treatments for the natural and successful rejuvenation of the face. To do this it uses all of the benefits related to the use of autologous fat.

Fat grafting surgery (which can also be applied to other areas of the body) consists of the removal of fat from the patient, and then reinserting it into the area that requires treatment, in this case the face.

Autologous fat makes it possible to smooth out wrinkles or folds that have formed over time, as well as treat facial flaccidity or facial drooping. It successfully enables us to enjoy the benefits of a rejuvenated face, being able to naturally express ourselves with ease.

You can have a successful facial fat grafting procedure in just one session, with quick results.

Benefits of facial fat grafting

  • Removes wrinkles from the face and rejuvenates the skin
  • Effective and natural results
  • Works with wrinkles, folds, and flaccidity
  • Guaranteed compatibility as it is the patient’s own fat


Expected results 

The results from facial fat grafting can be seen in just a few days following the procedure. Nevertheless, we are able to analyse results after a month. One of the main benefits is that there is no risk of rejection or allergies. Compatibility is guaranteed as the fat is from the patient themself.

Facial fat grafting cases

The procedure

The surgeon will remove the fat from an preselected area of the patient’s body. Thin cannulas are used for the fat removal, these are inserted through small incisions and suck out the fat. The extracted fat is treated to ensure that its application is as successful and long-lasting as possible. The fat is then inserted again through small insertions using cannulas. These insertions will not be noticeable after the procedure. The treated fat will add volume to the skin, it will fill wrinkles and will deliver a general effect of rejuvenation.


Post procedure care

The facial fat grafting procedure can result in the appearance of some bruising around the area that the fat is removed from. It is also completely normal for the treated area to be slightly swollen, which will soon go down after a short time.
