Preparing the Fat for the Facial Fat Transfer Procedure

Facial fat grafting is an excellent procedure for restoring subtle amounts of volume to the face that help to enhance its natural contours and maintain its youthful beauty. In order to perform the procedure, the fat must first be extracted and processed.

The fat will be harvested from an area of the body that contains excess body fat, like the thighs or abdomen. The harvested fat is then placed inside a centrifuge that will rapidly spin in order to separate the fat from any other liquids and tissues. The purified fat is now ready to be injected into the desired areas of the face.
