Facial Fat Grafting Discover a Rejuvenated You

If you’re feeling as though fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin are impacting your youthful look, facial fat grafting is here to help, offering you impressive results with relatively minimal downtime. Fat transfer is a revolutionary surgical technique that utilizes your body’s own excess fatty tissue to reduce the depressions and hollows caused by aging skin; fill in lines and wrinkles; and create full, plump, and fresh facial contours for a healthy, rejuvenated, and youthful appearance. Our offices serve the Richmond, Northern Virginia, Charlottesville, and Washington DC areas. When you’re ready to learn more about how facial fat grafting can help you, reach out and speak with a helpful member of our team to set up your consultation.

Am I the Ideal Candidate for Fat Grafting?

Fat grafting is an ideal procedure for anyone interested in a more youthful appearance. By augmenting your facial contours and improving the shape of your face—as well as augmenting thin, dry lips—facial fat transfer can effectively turn back the clock and take years off your facial appearance.

While fat transfer is a good procedure for older patients seeking to reduce lines and wrinkles and correct loss of facial volume, it’s also ideal for younger patients who are dissatisfied with their appearance and want fuller cheeks, more rounded facial contours, or full, luscious lips. Individual results may vary. When you visit Dr. Burton Sundin or Dr. Reps Sundin for your initial consultation, he’ll get to know your cosmetic goals and work with you to decide upon the most appropriate treatment option.

The Facial Fat Grafting Experience

Your facial fat transfer procedure begins with a process that harvests excess fat from a donor site (usually the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs). Using a small, sterile cannula—which minimizes both incisions and scarring—your surgeon will carefully harvest excess fat cells from the donor area. The harvested fat is then spun in a centrifuge to sterilize it and remove impurities.

The purified fat will then be placed in a state-of-the-art micro-syringe, enabling it to be injected in extremely small quantities. This ensures smooth distribution and increases the likelihood that the transplanted fat will properly fuse with your existing tissues. Once the procedure is complete, you’ll be able to return home and begin looking forward to your results. We’ll provide you with detailed aftercare instructions, and will also set a follow-up appointment.

Introducing NanoFat Grafting

Some patients with more petite body silhouettes are unsure as to whether or not they are ideal candidates for facial fat grafting. The NanoFat procedure enables patients to harvest fat from multiple areas, even in small quantities. This enables Dr. Sundin to create precise results in targeted facial regions, so you can enjoy results that will effectively rejuvenate your look, without any extended downtime or lengthy recovery period. If you’d like to learn more about the NanoFat procedure, reach out and set up your consultation at one of our conveniently located offices.

Rest and Recovery After Fat Transfer

Immediately after the procedure, excessive facial expression and massage should be kept to a minimum, to avoid migration of the tissues in the treatment area. You’re likely to experience minimal swelling and slight bruising, and your results will continue to improve as the swelling subsides over the course of the next two to three weeks.

In advance of your surgical procedure, we’ll make sure that you’re given thorough aftercare instructions and a detailed timeline of what you can expect from your recovery period. Our team will remain available to you at every step of the process, to ensure that you’re comfortable and have all of your questions answered.
