Fat Grafting Face


Restore the volume, contour, and youthful appearance of your face with a facial fat grafting procedure. In this article, we will discuss fat grafting (face) – what it is, its benefits, potential side effects, procedure involved, costs, and more.

What Is Fat Grafting?

Fat grafting is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that involves harvesting fat from one area of the body, typically the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks, and transferring it to the face to augment facial contours, fill in hollow areas, and improve overall facial symmetry. This technique utilises the patient’s own natural fat cells, making it a safe and effective option for facial rejuvenation.

Benefits Of Fat Grafting (Face)

  1. Uses the patient’s own fat, minimising the risk of allergic reactions or rejection.
  2. Compared to synthetic fillers, it provides a more natural-looking and lost-lasting result.
  3. Versatile product that allows for both aesthetic improvement and reconstruction of soft tissue defects.

Who Should Consider Facial Fat Grafting?

Individuals who are bothered by volume loss, facial hollowing, or asymmetry may consider facial fat grafting as a natural and long-lasting solution. Ideal candidates for this procedure are:

  • Those with sufficient donor fat in areas such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks.
  • Want to add volume to their face (cheeks and lips).
  • Want to improve the appearance of their scars.
  • Interested in body contouring in the areas where the fat will be harvested.

What Does The Procedure Involve?

During the procedure, fat is harvested from the donor site using liposuction techniques. The harvested fat is then processed to remove excess fluids and impurities before being carefully injected into targeted areas of the face using small cannulas. The procedure is typically performed under local anaesthesia with sedation or general anaesthesia and may take several hours, depending on the extent of fat grafting needed and the areas being treated.

Are There Side Effects?

While facial fat grafting is generally safe, it may be associated with temporary side effects such as swelling, bruising, and discomfort at the donor and recipient sites. In rare cases, complications such as infection, asymmetry, or fat necrosis may occur. Patients should discuss potential risks with their surgeon and follow post-operative care instructions to minimise complications.

How Much Does It Cost?

The cost of fat grafting (face) may vary depending on factors such as the surgeon’s experience, geographic location, and the extent of the procedure. On average, the cost of facial fat grafting in South Korea ranges from ₩ 2,000,000 to ₩ 3,000,000 or S$2,000 to S$3,000 per session. However, multiple sessions may be required to achieve optimal results.
