Facial Fat Transfer in Atlanta with Michael N. Mirzabeigi, MD

Make Fat Your Friend

Youthful skin is full of volume and elasticity, but as one ages, both volume and elasticity can be lost. Wrinkles and creases may form as well. Many people will opt for dermal fillers to temporarily fix those; however, longer-lasting results may be achieved with a Facial Fat Transfer.

Board-certified Plastic Surgeon Michael N. Mirzabeigi, MD, understands that a facial fat transfer provides an excellent opportunity to use your fat to work for you rather than against you and strives to offer the best facial fat transfer Atlanta has to offer. Schedule your consultation to learn how your own fat can give you a younger, fuller look.

What is a Fat Transfer?

Fat is Not a Bad Word

Facial Fat Transfer (also known as “fat grafting” or “lipofilling”) is the process of extracting fat from an excess area (abdomen, trunk, thighs, etc.) utilizing liposuction techniques, then processing it and injecting it in places where greater fullness is desired.

Living fat cells serve as excellent, long-lasting filler material. Dr. Mirzabeigi is currently employing fat in the face to restore fullness to the lips, cheeks, and chin. He also uses a Facial Fat Transfer to add volume to other places that could benefit from more fullness.

What are the Benefits of a Facial Fat Transfer?

Enhance your Natural Beauty

Fat has a high concentration of stem cells. The fat doesn't just plump and fill your fine lines and wrinkles. Fat is also thought to potentially stimulate collagen production, giving you beautiful, youthful results. With artificial fillers and implants, there's a slight chance that your body may have a negative reaction; since a Facial Fat Transfer uses your own tissue, some of these issues can be avoided by using your own fat. A Facial Fat Transfer with Dr. Mirzaveigi's precision is the natural choice for enhancing your natural beauty.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Facial Fat Transfer?

Results that you'll love

Generally, most healthy adult non-smokers with enough donor fat to harvest for a graft are good candidates for a Facial Fat Transfer. Dr. Mirzabeigi uses his attention to detail and care to give you results that will last. During your consultation, he will review your body and goals and help you determine if a Facial Fat Transfer is the right treatment for you.

Your Facial Fat Transfer Procedure

Fulfill your aesthetic needs

Depending on the necessary location and extent of a Facial Fat Transfer, it can be performed under local anesthetic in the office or the operating room. Although other donor sites can be used, we commonly extract fat from the abdomen, hips, or inner thighs. The fat removal area is infiltrated with a dilute local anesthetic solution.

The fat is collected through a tiny incision. After that, the fat is prepared for re-injection and injected into the areas of the face or body where you would like to see more fullness. The procedure usually takes one to two hours and is performed as an outpatient procedure. Dr. Mirzabeigi focuses on fulfilling your aesthetic needs with careful precision to ensure you have a smooth Facial Fat Transfer and are completely satisfied with the results.

Facial Fat Transfer Recovery

A Healing Touch

Local bruising and swelling at both the donor location and the injection sites and minor to severe pain for a few days are the most common side effects. Most of our Atlanta Facial Fat Transfer patients can generally resume normal activities within a few days, though we recommend waiting one to three weeks before starting vigorous exercise. There is usually some fat reabsorption (not all fat cells survive), and it is occasionally necessary to use more than one fat grafting session to attain optimal fullness. The effects are long-lasting.

Facial Fat Transfer Results

Look naturally rejuvenated

The outcomes of a Facial Fat Transfer differ from person to person. However, under the right conditions, this operation can provide long-term benefits.

While injectable fillers are absorbed by the body over time, demanding recurrent treatments to prolong the results, a Facial Fat Transfer can be permanent since the transferred fat is alive. Some of the fat will be naturally absorbed by the body during the first six weeks after injection, but the fat that survives will generally remain in the body, similar to other living tissue. Over the next six months, a little amount of fat may be reabsorbed, but this is usually undetectable.
