Micro fat grafting is an innovative facial rejuvenation process in which fat from one area of the body is used to build lasting structural changes in the face. Fat grafting allows Dr. Slenkovich to sculpt sunken, hollow areas of the face to create a fuller, more youthful looking face.

How Fat Grafting Works

As we age, we begin to lose volume in the face in the form of collagen, fat and elastin. This can cause the cheeks to look sunken and the bony contours of your face to become more pronounced. Facial fat grafting restores volume to the face using your body’s natural filler. In many ways, micro fat grafting, also called lipostructure or facial fat transfer, is like a “permanent collagen injection” because once the fat has “taken” at the grafted site, it is essentially permanent.

Fat grafting is a procedure in which your own fat is collected from a distant donor area, such as your stomach, using liposuction and re-injected into the desired facial area. Facial fat grafting typically requires sedation plus local anesthesia if large amounts of fat are to be collected. Dr. Slenkovich can sometimes perform fat grafting in lieu of face lift surgery, or in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures to provide an overall softer, younger looking face.

Recovery After Fat Grafting

Recovery after fat grafting usually involves minimal postoperative pain. The most common postoperative issue is swelling and some bruising. This is highly variable, based on individual healing characteristics. Swelling could last as long as two weeks. More than one session of fat grafting may be needed to achieve your final goals.

Am I a Candidate for Fat Grafting?

Candidates for fat grafting typically have a loss of facial volume in the cheeks, temples, below the eyes or around the lips. If you have indentations in your skin, in the form of depressed scars or deep wrinkles, you may also be a candidate for micro fat grafting.
