Facial fat injections with Dr. Wallach are an excellent way for men to gain fullness and shape in their face. Facial fat injections transfer fat from one part of the body to the desired area of the face. The procedure is non-allergenic since it uses your own fat in order to enhance your facial contours. This can achieve enhanced volume and a sharper facial profile. When looking for overall rejuvenation, facial fat injections offer a cost-effective treatment in combination with other surgical procedures.
With these injections, you can achieve:
- Fullness in the lips
- Volume in the cheeks
- Fullness under the eyes
- Fuller jawlines
- Prominent chin
The results achieved with these injections offer you a natural rejuvenation option.
How do I prepare for facial fat injections?
Not much preparation is required for your facial fat injections. However, if you are a smoker, you should avoid smoking for a few weeks leading to and post your procedure. You should also avoid blood thinners for 1-2 weeks prior to the procedure. Dr. Wallach will give you explicit instructions to follow to make sure your procedure is safe and effective.
How does fat transfer work?
During your consultation, Dr. Wallach will assess the shape and contours of your face to determine which areas of your face will benefit from increased volume. This could be any area on your face which has lost volume over the years. Most patients opt to get volume enhancement in their cheeks.
Once the receiving area is determined, Dr. Wallach will assess the donor site. The most common areas for this are the abdomen, thighs, and waist. There is some downtime involved after the procedure, but risks of complications are minimal. Dr. Wallach will advise you about the recovery period as well as aftercare instructions to follow after you return home.
What will my results be like?
The results from your facial fat injections are visible immediately. The enhancement may appear greater right after your procedure, but this settles by the time you see your final results. This is why the amount of fat transferred to your face will be slightly greater than what is required since your body absorbs some fat cells and not all survive the transfer process. Future procedures may be necessary to add more volume as you age. You may require a day or more of downtime, depending on your procedure, so that your donor site can heal.
