Facial fat injections replace lost volume in your face without artificial material. The fat is removed from somewhere on your body where there is extra, using liposuction. Then, any impurities are removed from the fat and it is prepared for injection. Finally, using a series of injections, the fat cells are used to augment and re-shape certain areas of your face to create a youthful fullness and attractive contours. Facial fat injections can be a great option for hollow cheeks, smile lines, marionette lines and other furrows.

The fat is taken from an area of excess, which is often found in the following areas of a person’s physique:

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Butt
  • Back
  • Hips

Although fat is removed, it may not be so much fat that you notice a significant reduction in fat in that area. But Dr. Pakeman can help you decide if you want to combine your facial fat grafting procedure with full liposuction. And he can also let you know what degree of slimming you can expect from the standard facial fat grafting procedure.
