What Is Facial Fat Transfer?

There are plenty of procedures that refresh the contours and volume of your face; however, facial fat transfer is rising in popularity since it provides natural-looking results and long-lasting benefits. Loss of volume, frequently due to aging, is usually noticeable in the face. Autologous fat transfer to the face with BeautiFill® technology may be used to decrease some of the more typical signs of aging and increase fullness by smoothing lines, wrinkles, and folds throughout your face using your own fatty tissue. To find out more about facial fat grafting, contact Vita Nova Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Clinic in San Antonio, TX to schedule a consultation with board-certified internist Dr. Francisco Cardona.

How Does A Facial Fat Transfer Work?

Facial fat transfer with advanced BeautiFill technology works by breaking down and removing excess fat from areas of your body, including the hips, flanks, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks, utilizing gentle laser-assisted liposuction. From there, the harvested fat will go through a filtration process so Dr. Cardona can skillfully reinject the purified fat to the needed areas of your face, such as around the eyes, jawline, and cheeks, for beautiful, voluminous outcomes. Typically, you will only need one treatment for facial fat transfer, and the amount of time it takes will vary, depending on your cosmetic goals.

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Cardona and his amazing staff for any or all of a better healthier lifestyle and look for yourself. Alex and Jen and the rest of the staff are always wonderful and so pleasant to deal with every single time. I've been coming for months for my TRT treatments as well as hair restoration and have been so pleased with my experiences and definitely exceeded my expectations. Dr. Cardona shows so much compassion and genuinely cares about each one of his patients as well as his staff does. They are awesome!!!

About Us
Will my facial fat transfer results look and feel natural?

Yes, facial fat transfer with BeautiFill provides natural-looking and feeling results, especially when compared with synthetic implants and other treatments. The BeautiFill procedure uses your own fat, ensuring a harmonious integration with existing facial tissues for a more youthful and authentic appearance and a natural texture and feel.

What will happen to my facial fat transfer results if I gain weight?

Since the transferred fat cells behave like natural fat, weight gain can affect the treated areas - causing cells to become enlarged with weight gain or potentially shrink with weight loss. However, the distribution of fat gained may still be more proportional, and maintaining a stable weight helps preserve the longevity of your enhanced facial contours.

How long do I need for recovery after a BeautiFill fat transfer to the face?

BeautiFill recovery time varies, but many patients are able to resume normal activities within a few days or a week after treatment. Swelling and bruising are common initially, but these typically subside quickly on their own. At the time of your procedure, Dr. Cardona will provide specific postoperative care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery process so that you can get back to your favorite activities and enjoy your new look as safely and as soon as possible.
