What Is Facial Fat Transfer?

Nowadays, there are different treatments that rejuvenate the contours and volume of your face; however, facial fat grafting is rising in popularity because of its natural results and long-lasting benefits. Loss of volume, frequently due to aging, is usually most noticeable in the areas around the cheeks, jawline, and eyes. Fat grafting to the face may be used to diminish some of the more common signs of aging, and it rebuilds plumpness by smoothing fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on your face using your own fatty tissue. By liposuctioning excess fat from areas of your body, oculofacial plastic surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint can skillfully re-inject the fat into the needed sections of your face for beautiful, long-lasting results. With fat grafting to the face, you not only see a refreshed facial appearance, you smooth your body. To find out more about fat grafting to the face, contact Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV to make an appointment with Dr. Myint.

Looking 10 Years Younger!!!! I feel confident and see the bright, young eyes I knew before - Dr. Myint performed my brow lift two weeks ago, and I absolutely love the results. The procedure resulted in minimal discomfort relieved by Tylenol for two days. Before my brow lift, I disliked looking at pictures of myself, and always appeared exhausted. Now I feel confident and see the bright, young eyes I knew before. I have tried multiple non-invasive lasers over the last few years, and have even tried injectables. I am very happy that I consulted with Dr. Myint and proceeded with a surgical procedure that will benefit my looks for many years to come. If you want youthful, beautiful, natural-looking results, treat yourself to Dr. Myint's talents. Dr. Myint is highly accomplished, has a superb bedside manner, and will provide ample information before and after the procedure.

I have been a patient of Dr. Myint for the last few years and I'm extremely happy with his expertise and results. He is truly knowledgable and highly talented. A real artist in the best sense of the word. He is also very good in reconstruction surgery and in fixing the mistakes of other doctors. His results are natural and always perfect. As a model and beauty queen I wouldn't trust anyone else.

After retiring to Las Vegas in 2010, I consulted several LV doctors to find a plastic surgeon for upper eyelid surgery. All three doctors recommended Dr. Myint for the reason that he is only one of several Oculo Facial Plastic Surgeons world-wide and is the top in his field. I then googled him and was very impressed with his credentials. I went with him and since then have had several other procedures done by Dr. Myint. In all cases, I was extremely pleased with the results. He is an amazing and wonderful doctor, and I can attest that he lives up to everything stated on his website. The words: beloved, trust, passionate, cautious, and caring accurately describe Dr. Myint. I think the world of him and his staff Alexzandra and Brittney, and highly recommend Dr. Myint to anyone seeking to improve their appearance.

Who is a Candidate for Facial Fat Transfer?

A fat transfer can help if you want to add natural-looking volume to certain areas of your face. A facial fat transfer may fill in wrinkles like laugh lines, smile lines, and Crow's feet. Transferred fat may also improve the visibility of acne scars and pitted areas. You may also enhance your cheeks and lips for a rejuvenated appearance. Similar to the results of a wrinkle filler injection, such as Restylane, a fat transfer is a great option if you want your results to last for much longer. To be a good candidate for a fat transfer, you need to have enough excess fat to meet your goals.

How does facial fat transfer work?

Fat transfer is a two-part surgery that includes harvesting the fat and placement. Since only a minimal amount of fat is removed and grafted, Dr. Myint typically uses twilight or local anesthesia. To start, Dr. Myint will perform liposuction to remove fat, which will probably be taken from your abdomen, hips, or flanks. As soon as the fat is removed, it will be purified and then placed in syringes. Dr. Myint will use different techniques and injection angles to ensure the highest immersion rate into your skin as well as to create smoothness. Based on your treatment plan, fat will be grafted to your cheeks, lips, and/or under your eyes to add volume as well as to improve lines and facial depressions.

About Us

What to Expect

After your fat graft, your incisions will be suture before you're sent to a recovery area. Dr. Myint or someone on his staff will apply dressings and watch you till you are able to be sent home with a responsible adult. Prior to your procedure, Dr. Myint will let you know what to expect during your recovery and how you are able to speed your healing. Follow-up appointments should be scheduled at our Las Vegas, NV office so Dr. Myint can evaluate your healing and results. Your recovery will vary based on how much fat was taken and transferred, but you need to plan to take a couple of weeks for your recovery. Right away, you might feel sore with swelling and bruising in the area(s) that received liposuction along with the grafted area(s). You might see some improvements right away in your face; however, it will take several weeks before you can see your final results. A little bit of fat might be reabsorbed by your body, but with proper maintenance, your improvements can last for many years.

How much does facial fat transfer cost?

Your cost for facial fat transfer will include fat removal and will vary based on how much volume is being transferred. Following a complete assessment, Dr. Myint will decide how much fat is needed to achieve your goals and will prepare a personal plan. After this, he can begin to estimate costs, like facility and anesthesia fees. To help make your treatment easier to afford, Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery accepts several payment methods, including low-interest financing

How long does facial fat grafting take?

The length of time needed for your facial fat graft will depend on the amount of fat being removed, plus the volume needed to reach your goals. When your plan is developed in your consultation, Dr. Myint can discuss what you should expect, for example how long it will take. Dr. Myint takes his time to carefully place thin layers of fat with innovative techniques so your results look natural.

Can facial fat transfer be combined with another procedure?

A facial fat transfer may be performed with a nonsurgical treatment such as a wrinkle relaxer (BOTOX) or a skin treatment (for example, facial regeneration). A fat transfer is also a good way to enhance another cosmetic surgery. A fat transfer will increase volume to improve the balance of your face, which enhances the surgical results of a facelift, chin implant, or cheek implants. Talk to Dr. Myint in your consultation about all your wants so he can develop a comprehensive plan with nonsurgical and surgical procedures that reach all of your goals.

Should I get a dermal filler or fat transfer?

Both a fat transfer to the face and an injectable dermal filler (for example, JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®) may correct the visibility of lines and static wrinkles, as well as restore volume to your face. Although dermal fillers may create wonderful results, a fat graft to the face often looks more natural and lasts longer. To help you decide how much volume you want and in which areas, Dr. Myint might recommend starting with dermal fillers. Once you have decided what you want, he can schedule a fat graft to your face at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery for results that last years instead of months.

Which areas of the face can be improved with fat grafting?

Fat grafting may be used in a number of areas to increase volume or decrease wrinkles. A fat transfer is ideal to enhance the mid-face or cheeks so that this area looks lifted and fuller without having to undergo surgery. In addition, transferred fat may also be used as a natural lip filler. You may also consider a fat graft to improve the hollow areas under your eyes. Facial fat grafting can also correct the appearance of pitted scars, static wrinkles (brow furrows, marionette lines). Dr. Myint will develop your personal treatment plan to focus on your needs and goals.

How long does a facial fat transfer last?

The longevity of results from a facial fat transfer may depend on several factors. Facial fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, involves the transfer of the patient's own fat cells from one area of the body to another to add volume and rejuvenate the face. While some of the transferred fat may be reabsorbed by the body in the first few months after the procedure, the remaining fat cells in the face usually stick around for a lifetime.
