Before & After Gallery – Facial Fat Grafting
Facial fat grafting has become a very popular and permanent alternative to temporary facial fillers. Over the last decade, we observed that a large component of facial aging involves loss of fullness from the cheeks. This change subsequently results in a prominent nasojugal groove, a groove that extends obliquely down the cheek from the eyes. This deflation of the cheeks results in redundant skin folding around the mouth, as observed by prominent nasolabial folds. With the advent of micro-fat (stem cell) transfer techniques, fat grafting has become the mainstay for a near permanent replacement of this volume loss.
Facial fat grafting results below demonstrate how facial aging signs can be erased with a minimally invasive procedure. Facial fat grafting can be performed in an office setting with local numbing medicine only. No anesthesia and a quick 20 minute office procedure are attributes that make this procedure attractive to many patients. Please make a consultation with Dr. Mowlavi to learn this procedure can help you.
Facial fat grafting – What to look for
Facial fat grafting before and after photos should demonstrate dramatic improvements. This is because the advantage of fat grafting is that the filler material being the fat is plentiful. Although it requires surgical harvesting of fat with liposuction techniques it allows for larger volumes of fat harvest. This means that all areas of facial volume loss can and should be treated in a single session. As such, it is not unusual to fat graft volumes of 30 to 50cc in a single session. What this means for you is that all areas in need of volume replacement should be treated and visible in the after photographs. These include the lips, the jowls and jawline, the nasolabial folds, the nasojugal groove, the temples, the lateral cheeks, the infra-brow, and even the nasal dorsum. As such, fat grafting before and after photos should demonstrate correction of any and all areas of concern.
