Facelift and Fat Injection

Whether you are having a mini facelift, facelift and neck lift, or just facelift alone, fat grafting may be necessary to achieve that more youthful and desired appearance. As we mature, we lose collagen and fat in our face. We also lose elasticity and gravity leads to things sagging and descending. The descent portion can be corrected with a facelift but the volume loss then needs to be addressed.

Fat grafting can be done with a facelift in order to create that fuller more youthful appearance. The fat is either taken from the abdomen or thighs and injected mainly into the cheeks, temples, and around the eyes. Sometimes the jawline can be injected as well. This can also be done with filler in the operating room or the office.
