Why Facial Fat Grafting is Becoming More and More Popular in Metro Detroit
Facial Fat Grafting in Metro Detroit and Troy, Michigan
As your face ages, it loses fullness. Natural facial collagen and elastin stretch out, causing fine lines and wrinkles. The loss of some subcutaneous fat on your face causes hollow spots under the eyes and in the cheeks, adding years to your appearance.
Gaunt cheeks, a tired look and more wrinkles can make you look much older than you really are. An excellent, minimally invasive option to restore fullness and a more youthful appearance to your face is facial fat grafting.
Facial fat grafting in metro Detroit is also called facial fat rejuvenation, fat transfer, lipo-injection and fat injection. For our purposes here, we’ll call it facial fat grafting.
Why Facial Fat Grafting?
Facial fat grafting fills out those hollow areas and smooths wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. Restoring volume to your face adds more light to your facial areas, which gives your skin a more radiant appearance.
Rather than having temporary injectable fillers and collagen treatments, facial fat grafting requires fewer treatments, has less risks for allergic reactions and gives a more natural appearance. Also, since no facial skin is removed or stretched, the risk of an unnatural look is greatly reduced.

What Is Facial Fat Grafting?
Your surgeon will use local anesthetic at the site of fat removal. A light topical anesthetic may be used in the areas of your face where the fat will be injected.
Fat is removed from your tummy area or thighs through a tiny incision. Only small amounts of fat are removed, so this isn’t a liposuction procedure.
The fat is purified, and then it’s reinjected, using fine needles, into the areas of your face where you want more volume. The fat is organic and soft, giving natural-looking results.
What Are The Benefits of Facial Fat Grafting in Troy?
- Natural fat harvested from your own body gives you a softer, more natural look.
- Grafting is minimally invasive.
- Since the fat transferred stays permanently, grafting eliminates the need for numerous maintenance treatments.
- Using your own natural fat cells reduces the risk of complications, like an allergic reaction or infection, that foreign substances may cause.
What About Recovery from Facial Fat Grafting?
There may be some swelling and bruising in the areas of injection, but that can last as little as 24-48 hours. Most people are ready to see others socially or professionally after about seven days. If you experience significant swelling and bruising, that could last up to two weeks, depending on the amount of fat injected.
You’ll be asked not to apply makeup for at least the first few days, sometimes longer. You can exercise and do household chores, as long as you don’t bend over frequently, which can contribute to swelling. There is typically a little pain in the donor fat sites.
