Facial Fat Transfer

Lines and wrinkles become more defined over the years due to the natural aging process. This can cause your complexion to appear aged and tired. However, a loss of fat is also one of the main causes of aging flaws. As fat decreases within areas of the cheeks, skin can begin to sag and droop. If you are searching for an effective and lasting solution for reclaiming a youthful facial contour, a facial fat transfer could be the solution for you!

What is a Facial Fat Transfer?

A facial fat transfer is a personalized treatment that utilizes the patient’s own fat to store volume and improve facial shape. Fat is first collected from a donor site that has an accumulation of excess fatty tissue, such as the stomach or thighs. It is then carefully and strategically delivered  beneath the surface of skin that is experiencing fat loss. This effectively restores a supple and contoured facial shape.

What to Expect

A facial fat transfer procedure is performed in office. Following an initial consultation with Dr. Michele Zormeier, a personalized treatment plan is created for you and your specific skin needs. During treatment, a small amount of liposuction is first performed on the patient. A portion of the fat tissue is extracted for the isolation of cellular membranes. For every 1ml of fat, approximately one million cells should be available. The fat is then processed using specialized equipment that works to create a cellular pellet.

Results offer supple and younger-looking skin with an improved, youthful facial contour.

FAQs

  1. How long does the procedure take?

The entire process takes about 5 hours start to finish. You are comfortable and resting as the processing of the cells takes about 2 hours.

  1. How long will I take to heal?

While the full results may be seen around 8 months, we usually ask patients to take a social week to heal.

  1. I had a facelift, can I still have this procedure?

Absolutely.

  1. How will I feel after the procedure?

Most people feel surprisingly very good. The areas from which the fat are harvested will feel a bit sore, as if you worked them out the day before. That mild discomfort should only last a few days. The face will feel somewhat tight and a bit flushed for several days with only very minimal discomfort if any.

Dr. Michele gave me a lower blepharoplasty and laser resurfacing in April 2022. My undereye bags were very large, and genetic and I always looked tired before. This weekend I met up with all my long distance family and friends for Thanksgiving, and everyone wants to know my secret. They ask if I’ve lost weight or have a new sleep schedule. Nope! My results are natural, beautiful and permanent. I highly recommend Dr. Michele’s skill and her nurses warm bedside manner made me feel super comfortable the whole time.

I have had Botox, fillers, and IPL laser. I’m 38 and was noticing that I often look tired, with under eye bags, a bit of smile lines, and slightly droopy eye brows. I noticed right away that the Botox did great with lifting up my brows. The fillers gave me some cheeks and disguised the under eye bags.. my laugh lines are much less noticeable. I still have 2 more sessions of the IPL laser but so far I’ve noticed much less redness and discoloration and look forward to the final result. I did feel like Dr. Zormier cared about making sure I was comfortable. I noticed that some of the reviews mentioned that she wasn’t sensitive to pain- that was not my experience at all. If I had any criticisms- I feel like there might be a bit more fillers than I would have liked in my cheeks.. this was my first experience getting work done so perhaps I didn’t communicate with DR. zormier as thoroughly as I should have. I didn’t know what to communicate so I pretty much let her do what she thought was best. Next time I have fillers, I will ask for about 25% less than what was injected. Also, for the fillers , Botox , and IPL laser, I spent $6000 . Very expensive . I’m hopeful that maintaining is much less than this .

I had a blepharoplasty done to excess skin that was bothersome and also co2 fractional laser done to face and neck. There is an amazing difference and at 4 weeks I’m feeling in awe at the difference. Dr. Zormeier did a beautiful job!
