Facial Fat Grafting Q & A

What is facial fat grafting?

Facial fat grafting is a surgical technique used to contour, shape, and plump deflated areas of the face. 

During the procedure, Dr. Born removes fat from a predetermined site on the body (such as the buttocks) using a thin tube (liposuction cannula). The fat is prepared and reinjected into sites on the face that need revitalization. 

Dr. Born has extensive knowledge of facial anatomy and can place the transferred fat in just the right places to help you achieve the most natural, beautiful results. 

What are the benefits of facial fat grafting?

Facial fat grafting is a more permanent solution to boosting lost volume and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines when compared to dermal fillers and Botox®. Though these injectable medications offer good results, facial fat grafting’s results are superior.

The procedure requires no foreign or synthetic materials, so there’s little risk of complications. The results appear natural and are long-lasting.

How can facial fat grafting improve my look?

Facial fat grafting is effective in:

  • Lifting and filling in sunken cheeks and temples
  • Reshaping and tightening a sagging jawline
  • Restoring volume around the eyes 

As long as you’re in generally good health and are a nonsmoker, you’re eligible for surgery. Facial fat grafting is especially appropriate for people who have concerns about hollowness around their cheeks and face due to injury, aging, or hereditary conditions.

What should I consider when choosing a physician to perform facial fat grafting?

You want a provider who has extensive experience in facial fat grafting. Dr. Born has been performing micro fat transfer surgery for the face and body longer than any surgeon in Canada. 

His knowledge and expertise regarding fat transfer surgery make him one of the most sought-after surgeons in the industry to perform the procedure.

Dr. Born also knows how to combine facial fat grafting with other procedures, like face- and neck-lift surgery and eyelid surgery, to help you get the most pleasing results.
