- How does Dr. Pirani perform this procedure?
Facial fat grafting begins by gently harvesting fat from an area on the body such as the abdomen, hips, flanks, or thighs. For facial fat grafting, Dr. Pirani believes that this must be done with the most atraumatic technique possible in order to maximize fat survival. The harvested fat is then centrifuged and only the finest fat cells and growth factors are used for facial fat grafting.
Dr. Pirani uses extremely fine cannulas to inject the fat into the areas of concern. This is done with a very delicate and meticulous technique in order to maximize fat survival.
The beauty of facial fat grafting is that in conjunction with restoring volume to the face, Dr. Pirani can harvest fat from an area on your body with relative excess fat. Many patients appreciate being able to combine the dual benefits of a liposuction procedure to their abdomen, hips, or thighs with facial volume restoration.
You may experience a small amount of swelling and/or bruising for a few days to weeks. Many individuals go back to work within a few days after their facial fat grafting procedure. If you do experience some bruising, it can almost always be concealed with makeup.
For a facial fat grafting consultation, Dr. Pirani will spend approximately 30 minutes going over the risks and possible complications and giving you an idea of what you should expect in terms of results and recovery. Dr. Pirani’s goal is to educate you so that you fully understand your customized surgical plan and feel confident and informed.
