What Is a Facial Fat Transfer?
A facial fat transfer, also called fat grafting, is an aesthetic procedure that uses your own healthy fat cells to plump, volumize, and minimize common signs of aging on your face. Medical director Dr. Cory Gaiser utilizes BeautiFill™ laser technology to safely extract fat tissue from your own body and artfully re-inject it into problem areas of your face, such as the lips, cheeks, forehead wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and sunken or hollowed areas under your eyes. An added benefit of an autologous fat transfer to the face is that it simultaneously slims the body in the donor site, which is commonly the hips, back, thighs, or belly.

Frequently Asked Questions
Should I get a dermal filler or fat transfer?
Both facial fat transfers and dermal fillers (like Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®) may help prevent and improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles and restore volume to your face. Although dermal fillers can give you great results, a fat transfer typically lasts longer and may look more natural.
How does a facial fat transfer work?
Dr. Gaiser will numb the extraction area with a local anesthetic. He will then use the BeautiFill laser system to carefully loosen fat from a designated area of your body, removing and processing healthy fat cells in one simple step. The harvested fat will then be precisely injected into the treatment areas to bring a more supple, smoother, and fuller appearance to your face.
How long do facial fat results last?
A fat transfer offers a safe way to enhance your appearance with your own fat tissue. When performed at the hands of a trained BeautiFill expert, facial fat tranfers results may last for many years. However, the natural aging process will likely continue to impact your appearance over the course time.
What is the cost of a facial fat transfer?
Facial fat grafting costs will vary based on the number of treatment areas and the amount of fat volume being transferred. Dr. Gaiser will decide how much fat is required to create your goals and will prepare a custom treatment plan. To make your facial fat grafting easier to afford, New Body Aesthetics accepts several convenient payment methods.
