Facial Contouring

  • Fat can be used as a permanent filler to restore volume and contour to the face.
  • Facial fat grafting is the next step for those who have had Injectable Dermal Fillers and who want a permanent solution.
  • Patients with very thin and gaunt faces need aggressive volumizing and, in these situations fat grafting is a more cost-effective approach when compared to fillers.

    Recommended Procedures

    Other Options

    • Injectable Dermal Fillers are the most effective non-surgical treatment for facial volume and contouring; the downside is that it is temporary (lasts 6-12 months).

    How It’s Done

    • Fat is removed via liposuction from the abdomen and/or thighs.
    • Fat is purified and then injected very carefully and precisely using the Coleman technique.
    • Dr. Rad most commonly places fat in the midface (cheeks), under-eye region, lips and temples.

    Safety

    • In Dr. Rad’s hands, facial fat grafting is very safe and involves very low risk.
    • Dr. Rad works with a board certified anesthesiologist and performs surgery only in an AAAASF accredited surgery center or hospital operating facility.
    • Medical clearance by your Primary Care Physician is required prior to surgery.
    • Accompaniment by a family member or friend for 48 hours after surgery.

    What to Expect:

    • Pain is rare. The most common temporary sensation is swelling.
    • Mild swelling is normal and resolves over 7 to 10 days.

    Facial fat grafting (injection) is a powerful technique. Fat acts as a natural filler and can restore lost facial volume permanently. Dr. Rad removes abdominal fat through liposuction, and carefully layers it throughout hollowed areas of the face such as the temples, eye sockets, tear trough, apples of the cheeks, jawline and lips.  Dr. Rad commonly performs facial fat grafting as part of face/neck lift and lower blepharoplasty (eye bag removal).
