Facial Fat Transfer in the Inland Empire
Dr. Haiavy and Dr. Tower know how to put fat in its placing using advanced fat grafting techniques
Fat isn’t always a bad thing, but it has a habit of showing up in the places we least want it—and disappearing from those where we could use a little extra. The face is a perfect example: as we get older, loss of subcutaneous fat can lead to a sunken, droopy appearance in the mid-face and along the jawline. To top it off, depressions in the skin, fine lines or a crepey appearance, and expression wrinkles start to become more apparent.

While injectable fillers are an increasingly popular option for correct wrinkles and other signs of aging, we’ve found that autologous fat transfer can be an excellent option for many patients. This procedure can help contour the face, lift the cheeks and chin, and correct facial or body deformities.

How does fat transfer work?
Fat grafting is a way of restoring lost volume and proportion to the face through small incisions, minimal scars, and a fairly quick recovery.
Using liposuction techniques, fat is removed from a trouble area on the body, such as the abdomen, hips, or flanks. After purifying the harvested fat, it is then strategically re-injected into your areas of concern. This can be done under local anesthesia or IV sedation (twilight sleep). The process is repeated until the desired amount of fat has been transferred and an optimal outcome has been achieved.
With the fat transfer procedure, problems of rejection or allergic reactions are not factors because the fat is transplanted from your own body. Recovery time is very short, and patients are usually up and around the day of surgery.
While fat transfer is a great option for patients, there is a chance that some of the fat may be absorbed by your body over time—and you may need additional fat grafting procedures to achieve the desired contour. During your private consultation, we can help you learn more about our facial rejuvenation options and determine if fat grafting is the right choice for you.
