How long do the results of facial fat transfer last?
Not all fat cells will survive the transfer process – some are reabsorbed by the body. For this reason, the area may be slightly overfilled to allow enough surviving fat cells to establish a blood supply and continue functioning in the new location, for long-lasting results.
Does facial fat transfer serve the dual purpose of contouring the body?
Only a small amount of fat is removed from the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs in a facial fat grafting procedure. Although it can provide some minor body-contouring benefits, that is not the focus of this treatment.
Can facial fat transfer help correct sagging skin?
Fat transfer is performed to restore more youthful volume to an aging face. As sagging skin is partially caused by loss of fat volume, this procedure can help mild or moderate sagging.
Will weight fluctuations affect my results?
The surviving transferred cells will continue to live and function as fat cells in the area where they were injected. If you gain or lose a significant amount of weight, those cells can expand or shrink like any other fat cells, affecting the overall results of treatment. For best results, you should be at a stable weight before the procedure and continue to maintain that weight following your Carefree fat transfer procedure.
