What is facial fat grafting?

Facial fat grafting involves harvesting fat from one area of your body, purifying it, and then meticulously injecting it into specific areas of your face. This procedure adds volume and improves skin quality over time, thanks to the stem cells found in fat.

What is the procedure?

Performed in a safe, compassionate, hospital-based surgical setting, the facial fat grafting procedure exemplifies the synergy of technical skill and artistic vision that our team brings to every procedure. With his extensive training and experience, Dr. Davidson ensures that the fat is harvested, prepared, and injected with the utmost precision. Our skilled medical support staff delivers compassionate, concierge-style. The procedure involves several steps:

  • Fat cell harvesting: Fat is harvested from areas with excess fat, such as the abdomen, thighs, or flanks.
  • Fat purification: The harvested fat is processed to separate the fat cells from impurities and excess fluids and then prepared, ensuring that only the most viable, healthy fat cells are used for the grafting process.
  • Fat injection: Utilizing fine cannulas, the purified fat is meticulously injected into the predetermined areas of the face, sculpting and adding volume with precision.
  • Layering: The fat is injected in layers to create a smooth, natural-looking result and to promote optimal fat cell survival.
