What is Facial Fat Grafting?
Facial fat grafting is rising in popularity because it provides natural, lasting results. Volume in the face decreases with age and is most noticeable around the jawline, cheeks, and eyes. Facial fat grafting may be used to reduce some of the most common signs of aging, and it rebuilds plumpness by smoothing facial wrinkles and folds throughout your face using your transferred fat. By removing extra fat from areas of your body, Dr. Elias can meticulously reinject it into the desired parts of your face for beautiful, lasting results. With fat grafting to the face, you not only see a younger facial appearance, but you also smooth your body. To learn more, contact Southern California Center for Surgical Arts in Sherman Oaks, CA to arrange a consultation with Dr. Elias.
What happens during facial fat grafting?
Fat transfer is a process that includes liposuction and fat placement. Only a small amount of fat is removed and grafted so Dr. Elias usually uses twilight or local anesthesia. To start, Dr. Elias will use liposuction to remove fat, which will probably come from your flanks, hips, or abdomen. After the fat is removed, it will be purified and placed in syringes. Based on your plan, fat may be grafted to your cheeks, lips, and/or below your eyes to create volume, as well as to fill in lines, wrinkles, and facial pits.
Following your fat graft, your incisions will be closed before you are sent to recovery. Dr. Elias will apply dressings and monitor you until you can be sent home. Before your surgery, Dr. Elias will tell you what to expect after the procedure and recovery time. Follow-up appointments will need to be scheduled at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts so Dr. Elias can evaluate your recovery progress. Your recovery will vary based on the amount of fat that was taken and grafted, but you should plan to take 1 – 2 weeks to rest and recover. You may experience uncomfortable swelling and bruising in the area(s) that received liposuction and the transfer site(s). It takes several weeks until you will see your final outcomes. A small amount of fat might be reabsorbed by your body, but with good maintenance, your improvements can last for several years.
Southern California Center for Surgical Arts Reviews
My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room. Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
Dr. Elias pulled my wisdom teeth out like they called his mamma fat or something! Surgery was quick and basically painless. Didn’t need any of the pain meds and was back at work two days later looking like a snack. Diane was the nurse that took care of me for most of the process and she was so wonderful, kind, funny and sweet. If my wisdom teeth every grow back, I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Elias immediately. Thank you!
He did Facetite on me on a Friday and I was back to work on Monday - Dr. Elias is wonderful! He did Facetite on me on a Friday and I was back to work on Monday. He's a true artist & perfectionist! He's really good at injectables as well. I get Botox & fillers all the time with him. The staff is very friendly!
Excellent, clear communication, professional. Great staff with a fun vibe. Clean office. Lots of follow ups and no issues with my dental implant! Everyone was A+.
