Beautifully restore facial volume with fat transfer in Newport Beach. While wrinkles, sagging skin and fine lines are all obvious signs of aging that we seek to treat and minimize, there is another condition known as diminishing facial volume which can lead to an exhausted, hollowed appearance that is just as unappealing.

During the facial fat transfer process, Dr. Grover uses liposuction to extract fat cells from areas of the body that you would like to contour, such as the thighs, the hips or the belly, injecting them into the lips, temples or cheeks, or anywhere you would like a more youthful, supple aesthetic.

Facial fat transfer is most effective for rejuvenating…

  • Sunken temples
  • Thinning lips
  • Acne scars
  • Smile and frown lines
  • Hollowed cheeks
  • Depressions in the skin

Advantages of facial fat transfer

  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Non-surgical
  • Trims and sculpts the donor area
  • Provides a more youthful, refreshed appearance
  • Well-tolerated treatment by even those with allergies
  • Long-lasting, sustainable results
  • No downtime or discomfort
  • Natural-looking outcome
  • No general anesthesia

How can I tell if I’m a good candidate for fat transfer?

Dr. Grover suggests that patients…

  • Be in good health, both psychologically and physically
  • Be non-smokers
  • Be free from major medical issues
  • Have enough fat at the donor areas
  • Have realistic expectations for improvement rather than perfection

Details of the procedure

Dr. Grover will first extract excess fat cells from your love handles, thighs or belly using an ultra thin cannula. The donor fat is then purified and refined before it is injected into the target facial areas where there is fat depletion. It may be possible for Dr. Grover to reserve portions of this donor fat in the freezer for future visits. The doctor suggests visiting the office a few times a year for touch-ups. The fat transfer process takes around 1 hour or less, and is performed under local anesthesia for maximum comfort. You can expect to recover within 1-2 days on average, with minor tenderness at the injection site.

Moving forward with facial fat transfer

If you are in the Orange County area and would like to learn more about combatting diminishing facial volume with fat transfer, please contact Dr. Grover today to schedule your confidential consultation.

During this initial session, the doctor will be able to perform a physical examination, review your medical records, and answer all your questions in depth. He will cover such important topics as costs, insurance and financing; risks and benefits; recovery and downtime; and your final results.

Dr. Grover is a board-certified plastic surgeon and will provide you will access to our library of before and after photography for facial fat transfer patients so that you can have the most accurate idea of what to expect from your outcome.

In the event that you lack sufficient fat in the donor area to successfully transfer the fat to the face, Dr. Grover can suggest several alternatives for replacing and adding facial volume, including various dermal fillers, as well as implants.
