What Are Facial Fat Injections and What Are the Benefits?

There are many influences that can affect facial volume, including genetic and environmental factors, which can lead to hollowing of the cheeks, under-eye bags, and facial folds. Dr. Neal Goldberg, our experienced plastic surgeon, offers a wide range of rejuvenating treatment options that are designed to address these and other common signs of aging. One that is particularly well suited to these areas of concern is a technique called fat transfer or fat injections.

Fat injections utilize your own natural adipose (fat) tissue, typically harvested through liposuction of the abdomen or flanks, to restore the volume in targeted areas of your face. This procedure can be used alone or in combination with other facial rejuvenation options, including facelift surgery or non-surgical dermal fillers. Each one of these techniques offers a different collection of benefits. Fat transfer is unique in that this method builds volume to enhance facial contour and restore a more youthful fullness. If you are dissatisfied with your appearance due to nasolabial folds, marionette lines, sunken cheeks, or hollowness under the eyes—and you desire a treatment that uses no foreign substances—fat injections may be able to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.

One of the chief benefits of fat injections is the high degree of customization that can be achieved. Dr. Goldberg will utilize his artistic eye, professional experience, and micro-droplet technique to skillfully refresh your appearance with the most natural looking and long-lasting results possible. Since he uses your own bodily tissue, there is little to no risk of an allergic reaction. Furthermore, a single injection session may provide the desired result, or, if you prefer more comprehensive rejuvenation, multiple treatments can be performed if determined to be appropriate by the doctor.
