Facial autologous fat injection

With aging skin loses elasticity and becomes flaccid, which leads to formation of wrinkles. Decreasing facial fatty tissue further fosters this process. Even significant weight loss will lead to unwanted loss of fatty tissue in the face, which can lead to a shrunken face.

The missing volume can be reconstituted by means of autologous fat transfer/injection. To this end, we first perform a liposuction (suctioning of fatty tissue) in the abdominal, hip, and/or upper thigh region. The harvested fat is subsequently re-injected into the facial areas to be filled.

It is possible that over time, the body will metabolize a portion of this volume. We may therefore recommend a renewed autologous fat injection. This operation is mostly performed under general anesthesia in the setting of a day clinic.
