Fat Retention After Facial Fat Transfer

Fat Retention After Facial Fat Transfer

Posted by Solomon Cosmetic Center in Facial Fat Transfer 27 Oct 2016

How much will you retain from the Fat Transfer to the Face? How much of that fat will actually stay in the face? The national average is about 50-60 percent. However, some people reported 70 and 80 percent. But, it really kinda varies depending on the individuals. Some individuals may not even retain 50%, it may be 30-40%. But, for the majority of people, they would retain about 50-60%. And, how long would that stay for, I mean when do you see the maximum results? Normally what you see in about 2-3 months, that’s what you continue to retain for probably a long time. Most of the swelling and the puffiness and all that stuff will probably go in the first week. And then the second week you may also lose some of that fat, but most of the fat cells that is supposed to die usually die within about 3-7 days.

Fat Transfer to the Face is a procedure that restores volume to the face, fills wrinkles and scars, and reduces the overall appearance of aging. During the procedure, fat is removed from one area of the body by a cannula. It is then spun in a centrifuge to remove damaged cells and excess fluid. The healthy fat is then reinjected back into the face, restoring natural facial volume.

As Dr. Solomon stated in the video above, not all fat cells will be retained after the procedure; this is a natural process where some of the fat cells are absorbed by the body. However, the fat cells that are not absorbed will remain permanently. Facial fat cells that remain will age naturally with your face from that point forward.
