WHAT IS Facial Fat TRANSFER?
Patients have several options to help restore the volume and contours of their face. However, autologous facial fat transfer is increasing in popularity because of its natural-looking outcomes and long-lasting benefits. Volume loss, most commonly caused by aging, usually looks most noticeable around the jawline, cheeks, and eyes. Facial fat grafting with revolutionary BeautiFill technology can treat the more typical signs of aging. Using your transferred fatty tissue can also help increase suppleness and smooth fine lines, wrinkles, and folds. By removing unwanted fat from other areas of your body, Dr. Philip Rettenmaier in Fort Wayne, IN can artfully inject the purified fat into your face for beautiful, long-lasting outcomes.

"My son (15 yo) has suffered from extreme sweating in his underarms. So much so that he only wore black T-shirt’s. The arm pit sweat was so embarrassing for him that it was beginning to affect his confidence. After looking online for a solution, we came across “no sweat” My son was hesitant, but he agreed to go to the consultation. After meeting and talking with Dr Rettenmaier, my son was all in! Dr Rettenmaier eased his concerns about the MiraDry procedure and answered all our questions. dr Rettenmaier is down to earth and so easy to talk to! He got my son in quick for the procedure in order to get it done before school. I am so happy to say it worked!!!

Is a Facial Fat Transfer Right for Me?
A fat transfer is good if you want to add natural-looking volume to specific areas of your face. Similar to the results of a dermal filler, like Restylane® or JUVÉDERM®, a facial fat transfer is a great option if you want longer-lasting results. Facial fat transfer can also add volume to your lips and cheeks for a more youthful appearance. To be a candidate for fat grafting, you need to have enough excess fat to meet your goals. This procedure is great for patients hoping to reduce the appearance of:
- Laugh lines
- Smile lines
- Crow's feet
- Acne scars
- Sunken areas of the face
What Results Can I Expect from Facial Fat Transfer?
Following your fat transfer, your incisions will be sutured before you're sent into a recovery area. Dr. Rettenmaier or a member of his staff will apply wound coverings and observe you until you are able to be sent home with a friend or family member. Follow-up appointments will need to be made at NoSweat Fort Wayne so Dr. Rettenmaier can assess your recovery and results. Your recovery will vary based on the amount of fat that was taken and transferred, but you need to plan to take a couple of weeks for your recovery. Initially, you may feel sore and notice some bruising and/or swelling in the liposuction site(s) along with your face. You might see some improvements immediately in your face, but it is going to take several weeks until you can see your final results. A little bit of fat may be reabsorbed by your body, but with good maintenance, your improvements can last for several years.
FACIAL FAT TRANSFER faq
Should I get a dermal filler or fat transfer?
A facial fat transfer or a dermal filler (like JUVÉDERM and Restylane) can treat the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or add facial volume. Although fillers may create beautiful results, a fat transfer usually lasts longer and looks more natural. After designing a treatment plan, Dr. Rettenmaier will schedule a facial fat transfer for enduring results.
How long does facial fat grafting take?
The length of time needed for your facial fat graft will depend on how much fat we take and the required volume to attain your desired results. During your initial consultation, Dr. Rettenmaier will go over what to expect, including the amount of time it will take. Dr. Rettenmaier takes his time to place even layers of fat with precise techniques so your outcomes look beautiful.
Which areas of the face can we improve with fat grafting?
To increase volume or fill in wrinkles, patients can use facial fat grafting in several areas. A fat transfer is ideal for augmenting the cheeks so they look fuller and lifted without having to undergo surgery. Patients can also use this treatment as a natural lip filler or to improve the hollow or sunken area underneath the eyes. A fat transfer to your face may also treat scars and wrinkles (brow furrows, marionette lines). Dr. Rettenmaier will develop your unique treatment plan to focus on your needs and goals.
