While embracing a healthier lifestyle is undoubtedly the best resolution you can set to start the new year, there are some cosmetic treatments that can help you achieve your beauty goals. 

At Pinnacle Plastic Surgery, we offer custom-designed fat grafting treatments that can help you achieve your desired appearance and start 2022 looking and feeling your best. Discover all you need to know about this treatment below.

What is Fat Grafting?

Fat grafting—also called micro-lipo injection, facial fat rejuvenation, or fat injection—is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure that aims to transfer fat between two areas of the body. 

Fat grafting is particularly effective as a facial rejuvenation treatment. In facial grafting, a portion of the fat is moved to the facial area from another area of the body. The most common procedure used for facial grafting is performed through injectables. Some of the reasons why injectables can be beneficial include:

  • Reduced risk of allergic reactions
  • Minimal scarring
  • No downtime or recovery time

Facial grafting is even more efficient if used in combination with other facial rejuvenation treatments offered at Pinnacle Plastic Surgery, such as eyelid lift and facelift.

Where can Fat Grafting be Used?

A tailored fat grafting surgery can help remodel the facial silhouette, enhance your unique features, and redefine your profile. There are several areas that can be improved through facial grafting. Whether you’re looking for fuller lips, fuller cheeks, tighter under-eye areas, or a more youthful appearance in general, fat grafting can take excess plump from one area and put it where you need it most.

There are several fat grafting combinations, and fat cells can be moved to the face from various areas of the body, including:

  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Belly and abdomen

After the fat cells are extracted via liposuction, they’re reinjected into the face, buttocks, thighs, or hands to reshape these areas. While the first results are immediate, you will be able to see the greatest benefits of this procedure up to six months after the surgery. 

Benefits of Fat Grafting

Fat grafting can yield long-lasting results, offering you a much more youthful, rested, and natural look. Some of the results you can expect from the procedure include:

  • Fuller, softer cheeks
  • Fuller lips
  • Tighter, more youthful skin 
  • More rested and energized under-eye areas
  • A more defined silhouette and facial profile
  • Reduced fat from other areas of the body 

Fat transfer procedures can come with different recovery times, depending on the person’s healing process and the extent of the areas involved. Generally, your body will need a few weeks to heal completely, but you can return to work after just a few days!
